60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Phoenix

by Charles Liu

51jtkxzajal-_sx326_bo1204203200_Menasha Ridge Publishing has several titles in their 60 Within 60 series, and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading and using the edition for the Phoenix area.

The hikes can be looked up by the specific part of the valley in which the hike is, or by the length of the hike. The hikes are also categorized in the table of contents by how flat or steep they are.

Want to find hikes with swimming holes? You can find them. HIkes with ruins? You can find them, too. There are lookups for hikes that are good for kids, or good for dogs.

So even without leaving the Table of Contents, it’s obvious this is a useful book.
