A dedicated, long-time wilderness mountaineer, Michael Hoyt has carefully documented his hikes using notes, photographs, and maps. This guidebook, the first of three volumes, contains information about the trails in the northern portion of the Bitterroot Mountains. Hikers, trail runners, horseback riders, mountain bikers, and families will all find useful information in this book.
Some people think that the paths into the wilderness and to wild mountains should remain a closely guarded secret. Michael strongly believes that our wild lands must be preserved, and that the long-term survival of the wilderness lands will only be possible if more people feel they have a vested interest in their preservation. This guidebook was written in hopes to bring more people into the backcountry, and in doing so, will increase the probability the wild areas of the Bitterroot Mountains will continue to be protected and preserved.
Just some of the great information you will find in this guidebook include trail location - including route directions how to reach the trailheads - elevation gain and loss, trail length, and effort required to traverse the trail. Included in this book are trails which begin from trailheads between Highway 12 on the north (Lolo Peak) and Printz ridge on the south (Mill Creek Canyon). A must have guidebook for the novice or the seasoned backcountry explorer.
Issued in 6x9-inch softcover with stunning full-color photography throughout the book.
