No one knows this premier hiking region better than author John Soares, who now offers his fourth and fully updated edition of 100 Classic Hikes: Northern California. And while he’s still in love with many of the old trails, some of them have become unsafe or less accessible. The good news is that this gave him the chance to fall for some new trails, which are happily now included in this new edition.
The old-growth forests and multiple mountain ranges of Northern California beckon the 10 million urban inhabitants of the Bay Area—who need outdoor experiences BADLY! This new edition not only gets them to the best of nature not far from their door, but looks tremendous on an urban coffee table, too. New hikes in this edition include:
2 in the Bay Area, including the Coastal Trail in San Francisco
5 in the Redwoods and along the coast north of the Bay Area
4 in the Sierra Nevada, including two summits: Ellis Peak and Sierra Buttes
2 in the Russian Wilderness in the Klamath Mountains
