Hiking Washington's History, by Judy Bentley

"Hiking Washington's History is the history buff's trail guide and the hiking buff's history book. It includes forty historic trails from across the state, ranging from short day hikes to multiday backpacking trips. Brief regional histories provide the context for the individual trail narratives and add another layer to the outdoor experience.

Despite Washington State's rapid growth, a remarkable number of historic trails remain - preserved in national parks, restored by cities and town, returned to public use by the railroads, or opened to hikers by Native American tribes."

Trail descriptions include:

  • Trail Maps
  • Directions to the trailhead
  • Difficulty level
  • Quotes from diaries, journals, letters, and reports
  • Contemporary and historic photographs
  • Identification of historically significant locations
