Description

A complete hiking guide to some of the most beautiful and mystical lands in America's Southwest


This is your guide to more than 50 spectacular and sublime walks, hikes, and backpacking adventures accessing the Jemez and Sangre de Cristo Mountains, contorted volcanic formations, and striated canyons. Move across the expansive Valle Grande; pierce the clouds on Wheeler Peak. Wade through a sea of wildflowers along subalpine lakes in the Pecos Wilderness. Walk with the ancients as you explore ruins left by American Indian, Hispanic, and Anglo inhabitants in places like Chaco Canyon and Bandelier National Monument. As with all the books in the 50 Hikes series, you’ll find clear and concise directions, easy-to-follow maps, and expert tips for enjoying what each hike has to offer—whether it’s staggering views, rushing rapids, or deep canyons.
