100 Hut Walks in the Alps: Routes for day and multi-day walks (Cicerone Guides) by Kev Reynolds Paperback . The hikes we planned from this book would have taken us as moderate hikers far longer than the book described.

Only 16 left in stock (more on the way). We scrapped these plans and hiked according to local maps instead.

Although the "100 Hikes" title had a nice roundness to it, the second book, 50 Hikes in Mount Rainier National Park, demonstrated the need for flexibility. Some wilderness areas did not have 100 hikeable trails, and others had slightly more. But the goal of documenting every worthwhile hike remained the same. And Vicky Spring, Ira and Pat's daughter, participated as co-author on one volume in the series, 100 Hikes in the Alpine Lakes, published in 1985. By 1998, Spring and Manning could look back on a hiking canon that included the following titles: 100 Hikes in Western Washington (with Louise B. Marshall), published 1966.

Hiking through the Alps and the North American mountains in the summer . Spring and Autumn have an abundance of colours and the mountains can be breathtaking.

Hiking through the Alps and the North American mountains in the summer are probably the best way of taking it all in. With stunning views, clean mountain air, pristine lakes and streams, meadows, craggy mountains and snowy peaks – there really might not be anywhere to match these places in the world. By booking your transfer with Ski-Lifts you will have peace of mind that you will receive the best possible service from knowledgeable and local drivers, who will be waiting for you the moment you step off the plane.

Simply put, the Swiss Alps are perhaps the best supported hiking destination in the entire world. Where else can you enjoy drop-dead gorgeous mountain scenery and never have to carry anything more than a light daypack? Even on long-distance trails like the Haute Route you can walk for days on end without a tent, sleeping bag, food, or stove. But for those travelers who are looking to spend some time in the Alps, but may have a limited schedule or cash, a great day.

  • The Sinners from Mitar
This book is geared toward a hiker far more skilled than the casual day-hiker. The hikes we planned from this book would have taken us as moderate hikers far longer than the book described. We scrapped these plans and hiked according to local maps instead.
  • Renthadral
This guidebook has the basics right, and good background history and geography, but is looking somewhat dated. Second edition 1992, now 20 years on, would benefit from another revision.

I didn't find this book that helpful, but I was looking for a more serious type of hiking. If you're just planning to do some day hikes, or are looking for a stroll in the mountains to break up some sightseeing then this book could be really useful. But if you're planning a serious hiking trip, then I'd recommend a different book - maybe Walking in the Alps by Kev Reynolds.
My biggest complaint was that it did not provide enough info on long/tough hikes. The format was good - clear, concise with nice lists - but it was not geared towards long, multiday hikes. (It has two or three I think). But it also does not have the same level of info on resturants, pubs, places to stay, as in some of the better guide books.
  • Bukus
Not only does this book do an excellent job of providing a good range (1/2 day hikes to 10 day treks) of the best hikes (it by no means covers all the hikes available - a task more suited for a set of encyclopedias as opposed to a compact guide book) in the Alps region. The descriptions are both accurate and cover the hikes in sufficient detail to give the reader a good idea of what to expect. They include vertical gain/loss info, approx. hiking time and distances in addition to descriptions of what you'll see along the way. It accurately describes the technical difficulty of the trails and if any special equipment will be required.
I found the descriptions useful not only in deciding what hikes to do but also in deciding what areas to visit and what to see along the way. I plan to use the book again for future trips to the region.
