Got this book with the 2020 Companion guide and together was able to make great picks for some day hikes. Look forward to using on my 14 state challenge.

Excellent list with decent descriptions. I hike with my dog. It would be nice if the description could include something about whether the hike is do-able for a dog or something like, "not suggested for hiking with a dog." Otherwise, the lists are extensive and good!

I liked the way the information was broken out and sectioned. Made it easy to follow, and will be a good tool for planning.
