Trails of the Angeles: 100 Hikes in the San Gabriels [With Map] (Paperback)
The authoritative volume to hiking in the San Gabriel Mountains
The San Gabriels loom large over the Los Angeles Basin. Only one guidebook has consistently covered the best hiking trails that traverse this sinuous mountain range, easily accessible to Southland residents and visitors. Trails of the Angeles describes 100 classic hiking trips, ranging from one-hour strolls to challenging two-day backcountry trips. Almost all are in the Angeles National Forest, plus some high-country trips in the San Bernardino National Forest.
Here you'll find:
- Trip difficulty evaluations, season recommendations, length, and elevation gain or loss
- Historical photos and descriptions, including the first American Indian footpaths, early pioneer homesteads, and landmarks still visible from the Great Hiking Era
- "Trails that Used to Be" ghost trails that have vanished or are now impassable
- A folded color map detailing all the hikes described in the book
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.
