HIKING WASHINGTON’S HISTORY @ DARVILL’S BOOKSTORE

(Friday, April 15 from 7 pm – 8 pm)

Get ready for a new hiking season!  Join us for an evening with Judy Bentley author of the new book Hiking Washington’s History, which reveals the stories embedded in Washington’s landscape. It includes 40 historic trails from across the state, ranging from short day hikes to multiday backpacking trips. Brief regional histories provide context for the individual trail narratives and add another layer to the outdoor experience. Despite Washington State’s rapid growth, a remarkable number of historic trails remain – preserved in national parks, restored by cities and towns, returned to public use by the railroads, or opened to hikers by Native American tribes.
