This book has great descriptions of the areas, although some have been overtaken by the urban sprawl. I just returned from a trip to Seattle and hoped this book would be useful in finding some nice mountain bike trails. I feel that the book was too full of 1 to 5 mile "rides"

This book has great descriptions of the areas, although some have been overtaken by the urban sprawl. I feel that the book was too full of 1 to 5 mile "rides". I get the impression Mr. Zilly felt like he had to pad the book by filling it with these extremely short rides. I also bought the Puget Sound mountain bike guide by Santo Crisuolo and was happy to see it filled with more rides in the 15-30+ mile range. Santo's book also had better maps.

I love this book, has great ride summaries, maps, and mileage charts. The book also has space for notes on each ride.

This book is a great resource for Puget Sound mountainbikers. This book has great descriptions of the areas, although some have been overtaken by the urban sprawl. The descriptions include distance from Seattle, the terrain and a general ability rating. A great book.
Manris
Good book if you are looking for local trail information in the Seattle area. I am new to the area so this book was perfect.
zzzachibis
I have had this book for about 3 weeks now. I have gone on 3 rides in the book. So far instructions have been clear. Lots of choices for trails, I'm looking forward to doing some new ones from the book.

As a visitor to Seattle, I used this book to find some good local mtn. bike trails. The author of the book has detailed every aspect of these trails to the mile. If you use the information and follow your bike computer, you will find your way around some awesome trails. I would suggest photocopying the pages and carrying them with you as the book is too bulky unless you have a big backpack. Luckily, when we rode the Middlefork trail at Snoqualmie we were smart enough to tear the pages out of the book. We misjudged our timing especially due to some of the obstacles we faced on the trail i.e. water crossings, fallen trees, etc. With one light (one burned out in 2 hours) and three people, we followed the book to the "t" and hiked approx. 6 miles of this trail in the dark. Without those torn out pages, we'd have spent the night in Snoqualmie! Great book. Buy it if you want to ride the trails in Seattle!
Tolrajas
Good driving directions, good riding directions, good guide to what is actually at the trail. All around a great addition for anyone just getting going in Mt. Biking.
Nawenadet
This is a great start to get to know the area, or if your planning a trip to the area. Something for all the family and a broad spectrum of things to do and miles to cover.
