With some of the largest tracts of wilderness to be found in the Pacific Northwest, the Central Cascades are packed with wildlife, geological diversity, and opportunity for adventure. Using US Highway 2 as its primary organizing principle, this second edition of Day Hiking Central Cascades focuses on the best day hikes to be found between the Sultan Basin and Wenatchee, and around Blewett Pass, Chelan, and the Stehekin and Entiat River Valleys.

In this fully updated guide, best-selling author Craig Romano covers everything from leisurely strolls close to town to all-day treks (with overnight backpacking options) deep into the Alpine Lakes, Glacier Peak, Henry M. Jackson, and Wild Sky Wilderness Areas. Scenery, destinations, and highlights vary too--included are hikes along rivers; to lakes, mountain tops, and fire lookouts; and through old-growth forests or alpine meadows. There are hikes that are well known and popular, hikes that are a bit more obscure and remote, and hikes that are perfect to explore with kids or dogs. Romano has selected his favorite trails for escaping crowds, spotting wildlife, and getting the best bang for your boot.
