Average Rating:(5.0)out of 5 stars
This book is really cool. Relatively large book on many great hikes throughout the world. Its reminded me how much there is to see out there. While not something I would carry with me on a backpacking trip it is definitely something I will use while planning any trip it has included in it. It has good detail for planning an entire trip to each place. The mileage, places to stay, prerequisites, and a great description of each place to hike.

Just touched the surface.
I found this book to be only minimally inspirational. Epic hikes...for the most part, I think not. Many of these countries or regions own greater and more interesting hikes than this book offers. Many of the ones shown are high-traffic hikes, which I avoid at all cost. That being said, there were a couple of treks I was unaware of previously, and have added them to my bucket list.

For those who need help picking their next hiking vacation

I immediately went out and bought the Epic Drives of the World book to match it. My wife and I like to travel, but sometimes have a hard time choosing the next destination, and a format like this book is perfect for that. Very awesome inclusion in the box.

A New Coffee Table Favorite

This book not only makes an awesome coffee table decoration but its filled with inspiration! We were excited to see all the hikes showcased in the Eastern Hemisphere since we are currently stationed in Japan. The book helped us revise the locations we want to visit while we are out here!

Wow, what an inspiration on where to go for some hikes all over the world!

I love that it is broken down into area of the world, which makes it easy to navigate.

Great photography and descriptions of how to plan it, where to stay and start.

Just Perfect!

Inspiring book

I absolutely love this book. I may not get to most of the place in the book but I am inspired to get out on more of the trails near me and more national parks.
