60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Dallas / Fort Worth covers the best trails the metroplex has to offer, including popular trails as well as lesser-known paths no guidebook has covered before. This is the essential guide you'll need for hiking in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex. Choose a trek alongside ancient dinosaur tracks at Dinosaur Valley State Park, or follow fresh prints of live coyote and white-tailed deer at Lake Mineral Wells. Explore remnants of Texas' disappearing blackland prairie, or wander amongst the dense hardwood forests of the riparian wetlands. A hike for every mood, you can pick a quiet hike to a secluded pecan grove or an upbeat populated hike to a State Champion Oak Tree - or maybe you just want to feel like a pioneer as you hike through the wilderness of the LBJ National Grasslands. Hikes include treks through open prairies, rolling hillsides, lakeside beaches, and other treasures all found just a daytrip or less from the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex.

About the author (2011)

An avid hiker, camper, and traveler, Joanie Sánchez's love of the outdoors began with an opportunity to work one summer with the Youth Conservation Corps in Yosemite National Park. That summer led to another the following year as a leader within the group, teaching and mentoring as she shared her passion for nature. Since then, her adventures have taken her backpacking across Europe, biking across New England, and hiking through islands in the Caribbean. She has traveled extensively throughout Mexico, and has written an adventure guidebook to Mexico's Gulf Coast. Sánchez is a graduate of Yale University. She grew up and lives in the Dallas area, and spends her free time showing fellow hikers the beauty Texas trails have to offer.
