Trails of the Angeles: 100 Hikes in the San Gabriels [With Map] (Paperback)
On Our Shelves Now
The rugged San Gabriel Mountains, rising starkly from the edge of the Los Angeles Basin, provide a sharp contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city and its surroundings. Angelinos across the county (a population of almost 10 million), as well as visitors from out of state, welcome the opportunity to escape from city chaos into the quiet wilderness. This 9th edition of the classic Wilderness Press guide has been revised and updated to reflect recent trail changes, and now includes trips in the Fish Canyon Narrows, along Alder Creek, and to Jones Peak, as well as perennial favorites such as Old Baldy, Mt. Wilson, and Devils Punchbowl. Each detailed trip description notes the distance, difficulty, and ideal season, and points out the highlights of the trail. The guide includes a companion 4-color waterproof topo map.
About the Author
Author John Robinson has been hiking the San Gabriels for more than four decades and is considered the foremost expert on the trails of these mountains. He wrote the first edition of Trails of the Angeles in 1971, and soon followed with San Bernadino Mountain Trails, in addition to three High Sierra hiking guides and five books on Southern California mountain history and lore. For this 9th edition he's been joined by seasoned hiker (and airline pilot) Doug Christiansen, who updated the book to reflect the latest trail conditions.
