Hikes for you and your dog in Eastern Washington, BC’s Kootenay, the Idaho Panhandle and western Montana — all trails recommended as dog-friendly and dog-fun!

- On most trails, no leashes required and no crowds to dodge
- Guidebook to 75 trails covering eastern Washington, Idaho panhandle, and northwest Montana; plus Okanagan Highlands and BC Kootenay (Canada)
Although Mittens is the “star” of Best Hikes with Dogs Inland Washington (that’s her on the cover!), more than a dozen dogs, big and small, were enlisted to help select the best trails for optimum canine enjoyment throughout Inland Washington. These trails do not require leashes (except in parks as designated). More than two-thirds of the hikes are on lesser known trails where travel is very light among other users and where you’re unlikely to meet horses, bicycles, or motorized vehicles. They offer shade and lakes or streams for your canine companion to play in and keep cool.
The guidebook offers advance alerts, trail by trail, on any dog hazards to watch for. Additional features include what to pack for your dog, including The Ten Canine Essentials and a doggy first-aid kit, plus a list of documentation you need to cross the US-Canadian border with your dog.
