Guide To The Foothills Trail

The Foothills Trail Conference has created this comprehensive guide to the Foothills Trail which is currently in its third edition. It includes the history of the trail, helpful information for backcountry hikers, section descriptions and maps, supplemental information on spur trails and parking areas and a profile of the terrain on the trail. It is the currently the best source of data available on the Foothills Trail.

Birdshooter’s Take: Guide To The Foothills Trail details each of the fourteen sections of the route with trail, profile, and parking maps and detailed descriptions of both the Foothills Trail and the numerous spur routes that connect to it. My Recommendation: This is the best and only available guidebook to the Foothills Trail. Don’t day or thru-hike without it. Note: This guide is only available in select stores or via direct mail order.
