Book: Day Hikes with Dogs

Day Hikes with Dogs (Pruett Publishing, $19), by Wendy Pierce and regular O/B contributor Becky Warren, features over 50 rated hikes for furry friends who like to run in the mountains. Going beyond simple distance and hiking time, the authors provide details on accessibility to water and leash constraints. Their four-legged friends, Doc, Uma, and Milo, provide their own insights on the trail, too, and the dogs’ comments prove amusing with several comments about their owners as well as the trail itself. This guide will bring a smile to your face as you choose the perfect hike for you and your favorite hiking buddy.
