60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Salt Lake City is the only guidebook that pinpoints the most exceptional hikes in the area. It contains meticulous trail descriptions that range from comfortable strolls for families to difficult treks for those looking for a challenging workout. Extensive key-at-a-glance information makes it easier to choose a hike based on length, difficulty, or scenery. A helpful list of hikes in the front of the book highlights those with special interests — best hikes for children, scenic hikes, hikes good for wildlife viewing, best hikes for runners, and more. Each hike report includes commentary on trailside geology, flowers, and wildlife. Historical notes provide fascinating details about early miners, trailblazers, the Pony Express, and Mormon pioneers. 

Nestled in the western flank of the Rockies, Salt Lake City provides ready access to a stunning array of hiking options amid alpine lakes, snow-draped mountain peaks, fragrant evergreen forests, deep canyon waterfalls, granite towers, and flowered cirques. Within 60 miles of Salt Lake City there are thousands of square miles of national forest, National Wilderness Areas, state parks and designated recreation areas to explore. 

Now, with this updated edition of 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Salt Lake City, whether lacing up boots, stepping into sneakers or strapping on snowshoes, Salt Lake City is even more accessible for hikers.

About Greg Witt
“Writing hiking books is a labor of love,” says Greg Witt, author of 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Salt Lake City. But he notes that one the most enjoyable benefits of writing the book was the number of surprise wildlife encounters on the trail. “When you hit the trail early in the morning and hike during the week when fewer people are on the trail, you have a much greater chance of seeing an amazing variety of wildlife.”

As Greg was hiking trails in the Wasatch Mountains he saw deer and moose on a regular basis. “A 1400-pound moose can be threatening,” he said. “Coming around the corner and seeing a moose in the middle of the trail can be startling and may even be reason to turn around, unless the moose gets out of the way.”

He also saw mountain goats, elk, pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, bison, beaver, fox, porcupine and bison, in addition to a number of smaller critters. “Rattlesnakes frequently bask in the sun on mountain trails, and I’ve nearly stepped on a few of them.”

In addition to being a busy author, Greg Witt is also an adventure guide in the Alps and in Utah. He does over 40 media appearances and speaking engagements annually.
