COMMENTS AND REVIEWS BY STATE HIKERS:
"I've been waiting for a book like this for 30 years. After that much anticipation it would be difficult for anything to live up to my expectations. Amazingly I was *not* disappointed!"

"There are more trails in Oklahoma than I ever knew and I've spent 40 years hiking on various trails around the state."

"If you only get one book on Oklahoma trails, toss the regional books and get this state-wide book, it's put together better than most."

BOOK OVERVIEW:
Oklahoma is well known as prime hunting and fishing territory, but red-dirt country also offers many opportunities for hiking, running and off-road biking. Larry Floyd and Kent Frates collaborated to provide this trail guide for the Sooner State, filling a void as the first comprehensive guidebook for the state.

This illustrated guide extends a welcome to hikers, bikers, runners, birders, campers and photographers. For the amateur and expert alike, Oklahoma Hiking Trails covers trails accessible to the public across the state. The authors also provide tips on how to prepare for any hiking adventure.

Color photographs of trail sites identify landmarks to look for and highlight the natural diversity found along the state's hundreds of miles of public trails. Detailed maps, GPS coordinates, and clear directions ensure that the runner, biker or hiker will get to the trail and stay on it. Each trail is rated "easy, moderate or strenuous."

This reference book will take outdoor adventurers from Tulsa to Lawton and from Broken Bow to Boise City—and all points in between.
