Explore North and South America's most epic treks and trails

Lonely Planet is excited to introduce Epic Hikes of the Americas, releasing in the US in June 2022. Lace up your hiking boots for this next instalment in our highly successful Epic Hikes series, this time exploring 50 of the Americas’ most rewarding treks and trails. From Canada's longest hut-to-hut hike, the Sunshine Coast Trail, to a descent through Havasu Canyon in the USA, and the Santa Cruz Trail of northern Peru, we cover a huge variety of themes and experiences across routes that range from one-day walks to multi-day treks.

With a vibrant cover illustrated by Ross Murray, this beautiful hardback continues this collectible series. Whether you’re a seasoned hiker, a novice embarking on your very first trek, or looking for a gift to suit an adventurer in your life, Epic Hikes of the Americas will inspire a lifetime of epic journeys on foot.

Each of the featured hikes includes:

  • First-person accounts from writers who have completed the hike
  • Challenge level grading: easy / harder / epic
  • Inspirational photography, maps and practical information to follow in the writer’s footsteps
  • Orientation toolkit: when is the best time of year to hike, how to get there, special equipment required
  • Expert travel advice: where to stay, recommended tours, the best places to eat
  • Suggestions for similar hikes

A diverse range of voices

Featuring over 20 writers, this book features a mix of Lonely Planet’s seasoned hikers and guests, such as Emily Ford, the first woman to complete a thru-hike of Wisconsin’s Ice Age Trail, and Christian McMahon, a hiker with severe rheumatoid arthritis who writes about Joshua Tree National Park.
