Robert Stone, a longtime RMOWP member from Red Lodge, Montana, has announced the release of two new books.
Now in its 5th edition, the updated Day Hikes In Grand Teton National Park includes 89 day hikes throughout the park and around the town of Jackson, Wyoming. The hikes are organized by region and include easy-to-follow directions. The book offers many options for hikers—from exploring a short distance from the trailhead to climbing thousands of feet in elevation through canyons that lead to fantastic views.
Highlights include lakeshore paths, cascading creeks, rock-walled canyons, panoramic overlooks, waterfalls, hot springs, fishermen trails, prime wildlife habitats, North America’s largest landslide, and two hikes atop the Jackson Hole Ski Resort. The hikes range from well-known destinations (like Jenny Lake and Jackson Lake) to quiet, backcountry trails.
The author has written extensively on Montana and Wyoming hiking trails and has personally hiked all of these trails. His companion guides include Day Hikes In Yellowstone National Park, Day Hikes In the Beartooth Mountains, and Day Hikes Around Bozeman, Montana.
2014_Big_Sur_coverThe revised and updated second edition of Day Hikes Around Big Sur includes 99 hikes along the California Central Coast and the interior mountains. The hikes, which take from one hour to all day, range from easy beach strolls to strenuous mountain climbs with panoramic vistas. The diverse terrain is a hiker’s paradise with a well-designed trail system of more than 300 miles.
Statistics, accurate driving and hiking directions, and numerous maps make these hiking adventures stress free, and dog admission information is also included. Most trails can be accessed from Carmel Valley Road or Highway 1. Companion guides include Stone’s Day Hikes Around Monterey & Carmel, Day Hikes On the California Central Coast, and Day Hikes Around San Luis Obispo.
