As we celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the National Parks, Backpacker’s Ted Alvarez has created a book heavy enough to be a door stop, yet valuable enough you’ll never put it down.
From Alaska and Hawaii all the way to Maine and Florida, this books packs the best of the National Parks into an easily digestible book. You will immediately be inspired to grab a friend, your spouse and even your kids and head out the door for an instant adventure.
The trails are well described and they seem to favor the more deserted vistas like the 96 mile Maah Daah Hey Trail in Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Of course you’ll also find the must-do Angels Landing in Zion and Half Dome in Yosemite.
Whether you’re new to the National Park system or a long time veteran you’ll find something to love in this book. Pick up a copy of Backpacker’s The National Parks Coast to Coast: 100 Best Hikes and make a new adventure in “America’s best idea.”
