If you only want to buy one hiking guidebook for Washington, but you don't know which one to get, may I recommend 100 Classic Hikes in Washington.
  It has all the classic "must see" hikes with beautiful pictures or maps on almost every page. The descriptions are insightful because this team has been writing guidebooks in the area since the 1960s. It may cost $5 more than the other guidebooks, but it's worth it.

If you like playing in the rivers of Washington you really ought to check out A Guide to the Whitewater Rivers of Washington.
  You don't buy this book for the pictures, but because it is thorough, detailed, and packed with information (including rivers that aren't whitewater). There is a chart in back where you can compare the rivers by class (from flat water Class 1, to extreme white water Class 5). Whether you are into kayaking, canoeing, innertubing, or guided adventures - this book will help you find a new river to play on. It might also be useful if you like fishing, photography, or birdwatching.
