With its breathtaking vistas and countless acres of unmarked wilderness, Alaska has long attracted those who are looking for a bit of adventure in their vacations—from visitors who want to climb rugged peaks to those content to push a stroller down a paved trail. Filled with maps and photos, Outside in the Interior is the perfect guidebook for outdoor enthusiasts of all levels of ability. It presents detailed information about trails throughout Interior Alaska, including round-trip distance, estimated hiking duration and difficulty, elevation, seasonal variations, and tips on what wildlife and other sights hikers are likely to observe along the way. Features on trail etiquette, safety, and the environment round out the volume, making this fully up-to-date new edition of Outside in the Interior an invaluable companion to any trip to America’s largest state.

Since the first edition was published in 2007, "Outside in the Interior" has been the go-to book for nonmotorized recreation enthusiasts north of the Alaska Range. The book included everything from short day hikes and paddles around Fairbanks to multiday routes in the deep wilderness of Interior Alaska and the Arctic, as well as ski and mountain bike trails. It was an immediate hit with both newcomers and longtime residents of the region.
