I hike all of the trails in my books regularly. But with more than 500 hikes it sometimes takes a while for me to get back to a trail. Trails get washed out, access roads close and things change. I need to know about these things, so I like to reward people who help. If you learn of a change to one of my hikes please send me an e-mail message at email@example.com. Please mention the hike name and number. If you are the first to report an update, I'll gladly send you a free autographed copy of one of my books -- your choice.
Because I am always updating the hiking books, you may wish to check the edition at your bookstore to be sure that you have the latest version.
And check the Trail Updates page before heading to the trailhead, especially if you are leading a hike.
