100 best hikes in America’s national parks revealed in new book from Backpacker magazine

Three great things about hiking in a national park: fresh air and your own two feet. Now a new book from Backpacker magazine can guide you to finding the best trails.

“Backpacker: The National Parks Coast to Coast: 100 Best Hikes,” a new book by Ted Alvarez, the magazine’s Northwest editor, offers park-specific visiting tips and detailed hike profiles. The book also includes 100 maps, ranger bios and interviews, and many eye-candy images.

Alvarez has a personal connection to national parks in shaping his career.

When he was 21, a trip to Glacier National Park convinced the budding music journalist to become a wilderness writer. Although the book is written with backpacking and multi-day hikes in mind, many trails it covers are great for all levels of hikers.

The book arrives in April to celebrate the National Park Service’s Centennial. Pre-order now at the link above.
