Product Information


An illustrated hiking guide by David Day, this book contains 496 pages with nearly 500 color photographs and trail maps to guide you through Utah's incredible backcountry. The most popular trails are generally located in the state's twelve national parks and monuments, but there are also many fantastic trails in Utah's thirty-three wilderness areas and other less protected places. Utah's Incredible Backcountry Trails will take you up mountain peaks, through redrock canyons, past Anasazi cliff dwellings and natural arches, as well as to waterfalls, hot springs and backcountry swimming holes. Every trail is illustrated with a detailed trail map and one or more color photographs. The trail descriptions are clear and concise, with important details such as distance, elevation gain, trail conditions, season, and regulations included. Best of all, Mr. Day has rated each trail with 1-5 stars according to how interesting and enjoyable he finds the hike. And, yes, he has personally been on all of them.
