Description


Bay Area parks and preserves offer a dramatic variety of landscapes, from fern-lined canyons to rugged beaches, grassy meadows to sunny chaparral-coated hillsides. Well-known destinations such as Point Reyes National Seashore, Mount Diablo State Park, Mount Tamalpais State Park, and many other more obscure jewels of the Bay Area park system are just a short drive from the heart of San Francisco. Completely updated and including five new hikes, 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: San Francisco guides readers to a splendid assortment of trails in the Bay Area's nine counties (a population of over 6 million people). Expertly drawn trail maps and trail profiles complement the detailed trail descriptions and useful at-a-glance information.

About the Author


A native of rural New Jersey, Jane Huber lived in Boston and New York City before moving to San Francisco in 1991. Once she got over the shock of driving a stick shift pickup truck up and down San Francisco's steep streets, Huber began venturing out of the city to explore Bay Area parks and preserves. Seeking to share her hiking experiences with others, Huber created the Bay Area Hiker website in 1999. She and her husband live in a San Francisco neighborhood populated with hawks and hummingbirds, where views stretch to Mount Diablo and Mount Tamalpais.
