A quite thorough hiking guide with lots of information about ancient forests. I feel like some of the discussion of ecology could have been a bit more thorough and everything could have been a little less dry, but overall, a pretty fascinating read. I can't wait to check out all of these trails!

A great book though sad as it speaks of the trajedy of the lost forests that once filled Oregon. This book is a very good guide to understand the history and concervation efforts that have gone on in Oregon regarding the Wild lands. As well, as the title states, the book is filled with the hiking experiences Chandra has had and the details she offers than many other books do not such. I have had the pleasure of meeting Chandra and look forward to walking in her foot steps hiking in Oregon.

Being a hiker and lover of forests I enjoyed this book. Before recommending hikes to do it gives a very good overview of the defining characteristics of old growth forests and history and challenges Oregon's forests face. The authors descriptions of the trails are enjoyable and contain the basic information you need to start planning for a hike. I use this in conjunction with Bill Sullivan's hiking guides to compare each others way of describing the trail.
