1001 Walks You Must Take Before You Die Review…A hefty 960 page coffee table book

Organized logically, the book has 5 chapters related to the type of hike: Overland, Urban, Mountain, Heritage, and Coastal & Shoreline. Within each chapter, the hikes are organized by continent, then country.

Seeing the stunning photos has inspired me to add several hikes to my life dream list. Many of them are several days long…so I better start planning!

  • Fitz Roy Loop, Argentina
  • Harz Witches’ Trail, Germany
  • Slovenian Mountain Trail, Slovenia

Sample pages: concise write-ups of each hike and colorful pictures

Don’t expect to find out how much water to take on your Joshua Tree hike, or a detailed trail map, but do expect some vibrant colorful photos, engaging text about each hike, and a few tips about the history and/or details of each hike. This is a book to get you inspired! I think I’ll need a couple of lifetimes to do all of the hikes in here :).

Hiking Lady Rating: 5 of 5 stars

    Thank you Hiking Lady for the review of the 960 page book – WOW, much too heavy to take on a long hike. I am sure many of your followers will want this book to read and peruse for their future hikes, without carrying the book with them of course!
