With this book in hand, hikers can spend their days wandering in wildflower meadows, hiking to cragged peaks, or swimming in cobalt-blue lakes in the Sierra Nevada, and then settle into a deck chair at sunset to enjoy the alpenglow. Hot Showers, Soft Beds, & Dayhikes in the Sierra describes 112 carefully chosen dayhikes in Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks, John Muir, Ansel Adams, Desolation, and Emigrant wilderness areas, and more. Many hikes have easy-through-strenuous options, and every hike listed is in close proximity to one or more quality accommodations (over 80 cabins, B&Bs, motels, lodges, guest ranches, and resorts are described). The fully updated third edition is also completely reorganized and redesigned.

Seasoned backpacker Morey describes 112 day hikes--10 miles or less in length--that begin at lodging sites throughout the California segment of the Sierra Nevada mountains, comprising Desolation, John Muir, and Emigrant Wildernesses as well as Yosemite, Kings Canyon, and Sequoia National Parks. For each hike the author provides elevation, distance, and difficulty information, as well as a simplified trail map, a short list of lodgings near by, directions to the trailhead, and a description of the hike. The listings are organized by region. A chart summarizing the best features of all 112 trips is provided in the front matter, and an index of accommodations concludes the text.
