Although Mittens is the "star" of Best Hikes with Dogs Inland Washington (that's her on the cover!), more than a dozen dogs, big and small, were enlisted to help select the best trails for optimum canine enjoyment throughout Inland Washington. These trails do not require leashes (except in parks as designated). More than two-thirds of the hikes are on lesser known trails where travel is very light among other users and where you're unlikely to meet horses, bicycles, or motorized vehicles. They offer shade and lakes or streams for your canine companion to play in and keep cool.

"If you and your dog are bored with the same old local hikes, grab this book, and head for the hills-take a good book on tape, let Buster hang his head out the window, and you'll both be glad you made the drive to new territory." (Outdoors Northwest)
"Take your best friend with you on a hike and you'll both have a good time by following suggestions in Best Hikes with Dogs: Inland Northwest." (Olympian)
