In 1979 Bill and his partner, Mike Sample, founded Falcon Publishing. Since then he has written twenty books and hundreds of magazine articles on wildlife, outdoor recreation, and conservation issues. Bill has also taught classes on bicycling, backpacking, zero-impact camping, and hiking in bear country for the Yellowstone Institute, a nonprofit educational organization in Yellowstone National Park.In 2000 Bill retired from his position as president of Falcon Publishing (now part of Globe Pequot Press) after it had grown into the premier publisher of outdoor recreation guidebooks, with more than 800 titles in print. During the early 21st Century, he worked as an Acquisition Editor for Globe Pequot Press and Travel and Outdoor Editor for NewWest.Net, a regional online magazine.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Abandoned it for a better guide 9. April 2014
Von Some Body - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book went against my prior opinion of falcon guides. I quickly came to ignore it completely and switched to make all my decisions based on Anne and Mike Poe's superior book.

Let's start with the good about this book: There's an at a glance map of the entire area, placing every hike in its rough location, there's also a map associated with each trail, and there are even GPS co-ords to every trailhead. All of these I appreciate.

So what was so bad? The book's biggest problem probably stems from the fact that it is "published in cooperation with the National Park Service". Now the NPS is entrusted with all our parks, and it must love all of them and every trail in them equally. After all it's the government. Problem is if the guide describes all the hikes using the same neutral tone, how is a visitor with only a few days in town to pick the best hikes? Solution: pick a different, much more opinionated book - like the Poe's.

So I switched to the other Arches/Canyonlands book. In comparison to it this book pails even more: the discussion of 2WD/hi-clearance/4WD to get to the trailhead is sometimes missing, the hypsometry is annoying (esp. considering the other book has full elevation gain and loss graphs), and sometimes the choice of trailhead access simply assumes 4WD as if we all have it. For example, using this book the way into Chesler park is via a 4x4 road from the south. The other book features the 2WD trailhead from the north. Disappointing.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Nice, with two minor gripes 31. August 2014
Von Diego O'Toole - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Based on this book, we were able to plan 4 days of day hikes to Arches and Canyonlands. The author's recommended hikes were excellent, and we chose something like ten of them (easy to strenuous) to fill our 4 days. We loved both parks and had a good idea what to expect. Nice color photos.

My gripes:

1. One of the Canyonlands hikes marked "moderate" had an extremely difficult section that we weren't expecting.
2. Choosing hikes based on a combination of length / recommendation / non-4WD access was complicated. The information was there, but not in one convenient table. (The author may have done this intentionally to prevent people copying the 2 or 3 pages it would be.)
2.0 von 5 Sternen Find something else 18. April 2016
Von Nancy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is pretty awful overall. The maps are small, not very detailed, and have few landmarks. There is one general overview map in the front without much detail and then the specific trails that it talks about later have a zoomed in map without reference points causing them to be of little easy use. The maps themselves are with little detail and hard to read. The descriptions of the trails are okay and do not seem to honestly convey any opinions and are written in text book style and are a rough read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Essential for Trip Planning. 17. März 2014
Von Fritz R. Ward - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Unless you are one of those lucky people who live in Moab or Green River, you probably have to travel a ways to visit Utah's slick rock country. You will also want to make the most of your outdoors time while you are there. And that is where this guidebook comes in. Yes, you can do a driving tour of the park, and if your idea of driving includes off road travel in 4wd vehicles, this book can definitely help you. But the best way to see Arches and Canyon Lands is on foot and you will certainly want to leave your car for a little while. And that is the big benefit of this Falcon Guide. It includes many hiking options for all levels of hikers, from beginners and those with disabilities, to extended backpack routes on ill defined trails, and everything in between.

Every hike, from the shortest half mile loops to the longest 20 mile routes include a color sketch map, GPS trailhead coordinates, significant waypoints along the trail, and often show color photos of the region so you can judge for yourself is this is a hike you need to take. Detailed driving directions, a large area map, and natural and archeological features round out the text. Although some of the trails are suitable for backpacking, day hikes receive the bulk of the attention. This makes sense because most park users have only a couple of days to experience the parks, but virtually all major geological formations and ecosystems are represented by the trails in this book. Readers should note, however, that a fair number of these trails can only be accessed by high clearance vehicles.

Finally, this book does offer a lot of "other" details to help plan trips. Essential contacts, such as parks and natural history associations are listed. Readers will learn how to get a backpacking permit, and important safety information about hiking in desert terrain. But ultimately, guides like this one should merely whet your appetite for exploration, and on that level, this one succeeded for me. I loved the photos, beautiful descriptions, and wide range of hiking options. And for the first time since my childhood, I am ready to visit these parks.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Good number of hikes, but accuracy and data in question 21. Mai 2014
Von Matthew Sedlak - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Found the number of hikes and coverage of the parks very well. But I believe some of the accuracy in the description of the trail could be better in places. For example, Willow Flats road in Arches is NOT a Low Clearance road - it is most definitely High Clearance required. Also, there is little to no elevation data on the hiking trails, which, to me, after length of the hike is the most critical factor in determining how tough the hike may be.

I wish there were consistency between the Falcon Guides.
