      Product Description-Best Hikes with Dogs Inland Northwest
·Terrain that's hazard-free and easy on the paws ·On most trails, no leashes required and no crowds to dodge ·75 trails covering
     eastern Washington, Idaho panhandle, and northwest Montana; plus Okanagan Highlands and BC Kootenay (Canada)
  Although Mittens is the "star" of this book (that's her on the cover!), more than a dozen dogs, big and small, were enlisted to
  help select the best trails for optimum canine enjoyment throughout the region. These trails do not require leashes (except in
 parks as designated). More than two-thirds of the hikes are on lesser known trails where travel is very light among other users
   and where you're unlikely to meet horses, bicycles, or motorized vehicles. They offer shade and lakes or streams for your
 canine companion to play in and keep cool. Advance alert is given, trail by trail, on any canine hazards to watch for. Additional
    features include what to pack for your pooch, including The Ten Canine Essentials and a doggy first-aid kit, plus a list of
                              documentation you need to cross the US-Canadian border with your dog.

Good Hiking Book..., June 18, 2005 By J. Whiteside (Spokane, WA)
   This review is from: Best Hikes with Dogs Inland Northwest (Paperback) I bought this book even though I don't have a dog. I
have several hiking books from the Inland NW and have found this one useful for locating good hikes in the region. Most of the
hikes are in the northern part of eastern Washington, northern Idaho, and western Montana - most at least an hour's drive from
Spokane or CDA.This book has very useful overviews that include the elevation gain, length, average hiking time, highest
elevation, best hiking season, and the USGS map to go along with the hike. The text for each hike is good - though as with all
guide books, I've found inaccuracies that can have you scratching your head, or worse, lost. The trail map is a traditional
topographical style with thick dotted lines showing the primary trail. I also liked how non-primary trails were shown in the maps -
functional for side excursions. There are good black and white pictures strewn through the book. Dog owners should find the
"tips" section and the hike text useful...
