Abandoned it for a better guide 9 avril 2014

This book went against my prior opinion of falcon guides. I quickly came to ignore it completely and switched to make all my decisions based on Anne and Mike Poe's superior book.

Let's start with the good about this book: There's an at a glance map of the entire area, placing every hike in its rough location, there's also a map associated with each trail, and there are even GPS co-ords to every trailhead. All of these I appreciate.

So what was so bad? The book's biggest problem probably stems from the fact that it is "published in cooperation with the National Park Service". Now the NPS is entrusted with all our parks, and it must love all of them and every trail in them equally. After all it's the government. Problem is if the guide describes all the hikes using the same neutral tone, how is a visitor with only a few days in town to pick the best hikes? Solution: pick a different, much more opinionated book - like the Poe's.

So I switched to the other Arches/Canyonlands book. In comparison to it this book pails even more: the discussion of 2WD/hi-clearance/4WD to get to the trailhead is sometimes missing, the hypsometry is annoying (esp. considering the other book has full elevation gain and loss graphs), and sometimes the choice of trailhead access simply assumes 4WD as if we all have it. For example, using this book the way into Chesler park is via a 4x4 road from the south. The other book features the 2WD trailhead from the north. Disappointing.

Great guide! 3 juillet 2013

My family and I just got back from Canyonlands and Arches National Parks and used this book to determine which trails we wanted to take while visiting these two wonderful parks. The book offers detailed and very accurate information about each of the trails including their difficulty, the length, where to find the trailhead, a description of the trail as well as a map showing other trails nearby that you might want to connect together to make a larger hike. Colored pictures are included for each trail. For the longer hikes, a mileage guide is included which tells you where you'll reach either part of the trail (ex: 0.1 miles: Junction with Upheaval Dome Overlook trail, turn left. 1.5 miles: Start steep descent, etc). This is of great value in that you may find that it's taking you longer than expected to complete the trail and it might be in your best interest to turn around instead of proceeding. It also helps in pacing yourself during the hike, as well as being helpful if you only want to see something specific on the trail and not complete the entire thing. This was the case on one of the trail in which we only wanted to see one of the arches, but not do the entire trail. Of course, it's a great indicator of ensuring you're still on the trail.

There are a wide assortment of trails - some very short and some long, which can be turned into overnight hikes. The author does a great job at pointing out how you can combine hikes to make them longer if you choose.

The size of the book is slim which makes it great for throwing in your backpack. There is also a map of both parks showing where each of the trails is located to help in planning your day(s).

Falcon Guide books do a fantastic job! We've used them in other parks as well. I honestly can't find one fault with this book. It contained everything we needed for our hikes and then some. Very easy to understand and follow, and certainly a great resource for planning your hiking adventures. I highly recommend it!
Good number of hikes, but accuracy and data in question 21 mai 2014

Found the number of hikes and coverage of the parks very well. But I believe some of the accuracy in the description of the trail could be better in places. For example, Willow Flats road in Arches is NOT a Low Clearance road - it is most definitely High Clearance required. Also, there is little to no elevation data on the hiking trails, which, to me, after length of the hike is the most critical factor in determining how tough the hike may be.

I wish there were consistency between the Falcon Guides.
Great guide book! 17 mai 2014

This was the only guide book we managed to find that had maps of the trails included. It still could come up a little short in describing the trails, but overall, was very helpful in choosing what we did in Canyon Lands and Arches.
Essential for Trip Planning. 17 mars 2014

Unless you are one of those lucky people who live in Moab or Green River, you probably have to travel a ways to visit Utah's slick rock country. You will also want to make the most of your outdoors time while you are there. And that is where this guidebook comes in. Yes, you can do a driving tour of the park, and if your idea of driving includes off road travel in 4wd vehicles, this book can definitely help you. But the best way to see Arches and Canyon Lands is on foot and you will certainly want to leave your car for a little while. And that is the big benefit of this Falcon Guide. It includes many hiking options for all levels of hikers, from beginners and those with disabilities, to extended backpack routes on ill defined trails, and everything in between.

Every hike, from the shortest half mile loops to the longest 20 mile routes include a color sketch map, GPS trailhead coordinates, significant waypoints along the trail, and often show color photos of the region so you can judge for yourself is this is a hike you need to take. Detailed driving directions, a large area map, and natural and archeological features round out the text. Although some of the trails are suitable for backpacking, day hikes receive the bulk of the attention. This makes sense because most park users have only a couple of days to experience the parks, but virtually all major geological formations and ecosystems are represented by the trails in this book. Readers should note, however, that a fair number of these trails can only be accessed by high clearance vehicles.

Finally, this book does offer a lot of "other" details to help plan trips. Essential contacts, such as parks and natural history associations are listed. Readers will learn how to get a backpacking permit, and important safety information about hiking in desert terrain. But ultimately, guides like this one should merely whet your appetite for exploration, and on that level, this one succeeded for me. I loved the photos, beautiful descriptions, and wide range of hiking options. And for the first time since my childhood, I am ready to visit these parks.
