Who says you have to travel far from home to go on a
great hike? In Best Hikes Near Houston author Keith
Stelter details the best hikes within an hour's drive of
the greater Houston area perfect for the urban and
suburbanite hard-pressed to find great outdoor activites
close to home. Each featured hike includes detailed hike
specs, a brief hike description, trailhead location,
directional cues, and a detailed map. There are a total
of 34 hikes included. The author's unique method of
combining intersecting trails within the same park to
make the best hike eliminates repetitiveness and seeing
long stretches of the same scenery. As an example, this
allows the hiker to take one three-mile trail instead of
hiking two or more trails at possible total 5-10 miles.
