day hikes

Looking for a source for day hikes, i like to do good long and short hikes with great scenery but i like to have a shower and sleep in a bed and only carry a daypack. I would drive from park to park and stay in cabins, or hotels and just go out for the day. Most books I see are out of print, any suggestions or comments.

Sorry can't recommend a particular hiking book.....you are right there are so many that are out of date........

The Yukon is huge........where will you be staying ?......which parks ?

Lots of trail options for day hikes in Kluane......nice little place to stay near Kathleen Lake and several trailheads http://www.kathleenlakelodge.ca/

or there are more motels further down the road in Haines Junction......

I would also stop by the Visitors' Centre in Haines Junction for maps and up to date trail conditions...... http://www.tc.gov.yk.ca/132.html
