"It's hard to imagine a Northwest bookshelf without at least one title in the 100 Hikes series. These books have introduced two generations of hikers and backpackers to the best (and often least-crowded) hiking opportunities in the Northwest. The most popular volume in the series, 100 Hikes in Washington's Alpine Lakes has been completely updated and revised. This rewarding collection of day trips and overnight backpacks covers the area between Stevens and Snoqualmie passes from north to south, Mount Si and Mission Ridge from east to west, and the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area. Hike descriptions include distance, elevation gain, estimated hiking times, and best time to go, plus trail maps and enticing photos
