Reviews - What do customers think about Easy Day Hikes in Yosemite: 20 Enjoyable Trails?

A Nice, but Brief, Selection  Mar 4, 2007
There are numerous guidebooks to Yosemite, one of the most popular national parks in the country. Deborah Durkee's volume is distinguished from the rest primarily by the fact that it is published by the Yosemite Association, a non-profit foundation associated with the park. If you want your planning dollar spent supporting this association then by all means get the book. You will also get treated to some decent hikes with readable maps.

The book does include some of the classics of the park. Mirror Lake, Taft Point, and Lembert Dome are all featured in this little book, as well as some less well known walks like the trail to Wawona Point. Nonetheless, in a park the size of Yosemite, a book advertising some 20 trails is bound to leave out a number of short but truly spectacular walks. I am absolutely amazed that the short trips to Bridalveil Falls and Lower Yosemite Falls were left out, and several other trips along Tioga Pass Road were also neglected.

The bottom line then is that this is a decent book at a reasonable price, but if you are planning to stay in Yosemite for any length of time there are better volumes. Suzanne Swedo's 'Best Easy Dayhikes Yosemite' comes to mind. If you are looking for longer adventures, Jeffrey Schaeffer's guides are still the best. But if you want to just stop and stretch your legs while driving through, or if you want to introduce your kids to some pleasant hiking, this book is just fine.
