I used it last year. Not really a good book

User Review - Flag as inappropriate

This book is worthwhile in the way that it describes nice hikes and it is not too expensive, however the hike descriptions are unclear ( we could not figure out where we were and were to go, especially at the Nigel Pass hike and Cavell Meadows). I do not recommend this book. There are better books.
