Read full description of the books:
Discover a part of Utah that remains untouched and unspoiled by man and his inventions! Some of the scenic wonders are located in the state's twelve national parks and monuments and some are in designated wilderness areas, but many are in backcountry places that are still relatively unknown and unprotected. These natural treasures are very often situated far from any road, but if you have a good pair of boots, a backpack, and are willing walk a few miles they are yours to enjoy. This comprehensive guide presents, in words and photographs, the very best hiking opportunities Utah has to offer. Some of the trails wind through deep redrock canyons, while others climb lofty snow-covered peaks. Visit a 700-year-old Anasazi cliff dwelling on the Colorado Plateau or discover a pristine alpine lake in the Uinta Mountains. About half of the hikes can be completed in one day, but many take more time -- they range in length from 4.5 miles to 33.5 miles. Over 250 color and black & white photographs and 80 detailed trail maps are included to help you choose the adventure that is right for you!
