Photography by Bart Smith, Foreword by Daniel Evans

In partnership with Trailkeepers of Oregon and Washington Trails Association

Hardcover / 288 pages / 10” x 10” / 250 photographs

The appeal of the Pacific Northwest is clear: jaw-dropping landscapes, an abundance of wildlife, and an active outdoor lifestyle that includes a robust hiking community. No wonder an estimated 12.5 million residents and tourists enjoy the region annually. HIKING TRAILS OF THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST, in keeping with the success of Rizzoli’s best-selling trails series, celebrates the region and invites us all to experience its beauty with stunning photography, maps, and information-packed text that brings the trails to life.

Authors Craig Romano and William L. Sullivan, veterans of the region’s trail systems, accompanied by the exceptional photography of Bart Smith, showcase the area’s 20,000-plus miles of trails, set among the national and provincial parks and wilderness areas of Northern California, Oregon, Washington, and Southwest British Columbia, including the Pacific Crest, Pacific Northwest, and Trans Canada Trails; and Olympic (WA), Mount Rainier (WA), Crater Lake (OR), and Lassen Volcanic National Parks (CA), and British Columbia’s Carmanah Walbran, Strathcona, Manning, and Garibaldi Parks. Published in partnership with both Trailkeepers of Oregon and Washington Trails Association, HIKING TRAILS OF THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST is an important addition to your library or coffee table for those who live in and enjoy the Pacific Northwest and all she has to offer, armchair or otherwise.
