The Snoqualmie region is within easy day-hiking distance for Seattle area hikers, but it’s the abundance of stunning scenery that draws most outdoor lovers to these trails. This new edition of Day Hiking: Snoqualmie Region includes new hikes and extends to new areas not covered in the first edition: 136 day hikes in all! New hikes, for example, have been added in the Blewett Pass area, the area north and northwest of Greenwater, east along the I-90 corridor as far as Ellensburg, and west along I-90 as far as Puget Sound. In addition, each hike has been checked and updated, more than half of all photographs are new, and there is an all-new eight-page color-photo insert.
**Mountaineers Books designates 1 percent of the sales of select guidebooks in our Day Hiking series toward volunteer trail maintenance. Since launching this program, we’ve contributed more than $14,000 toward improving trails.
For this book, our 1 percent of sales is going to Washington Trails Association (WTA). WTA hosts more than 750 work parties throughout Washington’s Cascades and Olympics each year, with volunteers clearing downed logs after spring snowmelt, cutting away brush, retreading worn stretches of trail, and building bridges and turnpikes. Their efforts are essential to the land managers who maintain thousands of acres on shoestring budgets.

This book is amazing. The maps and pictures are excellent and there is a comprehensive list of hikes to do with accurate difficulties and descriptions. I live in the Snoqualmie Pass area and use this all of the time to find last minute hikes to do with my wife and our dog.
great book easy to follow
This is the 2nd edition of this flagship Seattle area day hiking book published by The Mountaineers Books. The first edition of the book was seriously flawed, with a number of major and minor errors and even a few chapters on hikes that should have not been included in the book. From my quick review of the new edition, the really bad hike chapters, such as the Rooster Mountain debacle, are thankfully gone. There are number a number of new hikes included, too. The overall selection of hikes is good, with an interesting mix of the popular favorites and some lesser known trails. The same compact and clean format of the book has been retained, which I like. Topographic maps included in the chapters are clear and readable. It will take time to uncover any problems with the new edition, but for now I can recommend this guidebook for anyone looking for hiking options near Seattle.
