“Hot new series.” (The Daily News, Longview WA)
“The Mountaineers Books’ new Day Hiking series of guidebooks is a worthy successor to the classic Washington hiking guides authored by the late Harvey Manning and Ira Spring… [The] Day Hiking series was designed and written with the needs of hikers in mind.” (About.com)
“The newest, Craig Romano's Day Hiking: Olympic Peninsula is easily the best of the lot… the book is compact, easy to use and comprehensive.” (Voice of the Wild Olympics)
“The 100 Hikes series had two missions: to educate people about the amazing places to hike in this state, and to build a community of people willing to speak up for and protect those places. After reading through some of the new Day Hiking guide, it's clear that the mission continues.” (Andrew Engelson, Washington Trails Association)
