Backpacking Arizona
Bruce Grubbs


The world-famous Grand Canyon is only one of Arizona's spectacular natural features. Arizona encompasses over 90 wilderness areas, more than 15 national parks and monuments, and the largest national forest in the country. Expansive mesas, high peaks, and snaking canyons create a dynamic landscape and reflect a rich geologic and human history.

Backpacking Arizona is the only guide devoted to overnight trips in the state. You'll discover the maze of side canyons and hidden grottos in the Grand Canyon's untrammeled backcountry, historic pioneer trails on the Mogollon Rim, the little-traveled Blue Range, and the legendary Superstition Mountains in the Sonoran Desert.

Douglas Lorain


    Wyoming boasts countless outstanding backcountry destinations: trout-filled mountain lakes so scenic they leave you breathless; geologic wonders of a number and variety literally unequalled anywhere else on the planet; spectacular canyons dizzyingly deep and amazingly colorful; and more abundant wildlife than anywhere else in the Lower 48. While some of these attractions are world famous -- Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks and the Wind River Range -- many others are virtually unknown even to the savviest locals.

    Nationally award-winning guidebook author Douglas Lorain details both the famous and the hidden treasures in his picks of the Cowboy State’s 28 most enjoyable and beautiful backpack trips in Backpacking Wyoming. Distilled from thousands of trail miles and lasting from three days to almost two weeks, these carefully chosen itineraries offer the hiker mountain scenery, magnificent wildlife, colorful geologic marvels, and reasonable daily mileage goals. This in-depth guide reveals all the best trips in and around Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, the Beartooth and Bighorn Mountains, the Absaroka and Snowy Ranges, the Wind River Range, and, for solitude lovers, such little-known treasures as the Wyoming, Gros Ventre, Bear Lodge, and Salt River Mountains.

    A detailed trail map and photographs accompany each trip. Each of the trips rates scenery, solitude, and difficulty; specifies mileage, elevation gain, days on the trail, and shuttle distance; and notes special attractions, required permits, and challenges. It's all the information that novice and experienced backpackers alike will need to access the Wyoming backcountry and experience a trip of a lifetime.
