State hikers praise Oklahoma Hiking Trails:

"There are more trails in Oklahoma than I ever knew and I've spent 40 years hiking on various trails around the state."

"I've been waiting for a book like this for 30 years. After that much anticipation it would be difficult for anything to live up to my expectations. Amazingly I was *not* disappointed!"

"If you only get one book on Oklahoma trails, toss the regional books and get this state-wide book, it's put together better than most."

Avid state hikers Kent Frates and Larry Floyd had hiked many of the American West's trails and many noted routes in the East, yet they yearned for hiking experiences closer to home. So Frates and Floyd, both with publishing experience, set about exploring and gathering information on state trails early in 2007. Their book, Oklahoma Hiking Trails, was published by University of Oklahoma Press in fall 2010.
