About Hiking Washington's History: Second Edition. . .

For thousands of years people have traveled across Washington's spectacular terrain, establishing footpaths and roads to reach hunting grounds and coal mines high in the mountains, fishing sites and trade on the rivers, forests of old growth, and homesteads and towns. These traditional routes have been preserved in national parks, restored by cities and towns, salvaged from old railroad tracks and opened to hikers by Indigenous communities. Author of Hiking Washington's History, Judy Bentley will provide an overview of her book and share some favorite hikes.

Judy Bentley taught Pacific Northwest history at South Seattle College for more than twenty years and is an avid hiker and author of fifteen young adult books.
