    This is an easy to navigate compendium of known trails in California but as a hiker located near Los Angeles I take issue with the scant coverage of the southern part of the State Very few trails for the transverse mountain ranges are detailed which is to me a rather sad flaw in the book's value Mt San Antonio Mt Baldy is barely mentioned so you'll find no information on the trailhead at Manker Flats that will get you up to the Icehouse Saddle and on to Cucamonga Ontario or Big Horn Peak Also where is Mt Wilson Baden Powell Crikey I'm guessing that these trails are not often used to camp but only used for day hiking It also would be helpful for dog owners although I'm not one to know if dogs are permittedStill I loved how the material is laid out and what information is provided especially regarding the horrible permit procurement process The editor gives the hiker the best seasons to backpack a particular trail elevation gainloss level of difficulty recommended days needed number of miles location maps how to get there a trail description a black white photograph and best of all the level of solitude Kudos I hate crowds I expect them at a theme park but I want to be somewhat hermit like on a wilderness trail I'd definitely keep this book in the car on a drive up north There are enough trails marked with moderate solitude to keep me busy for a few days of backpacking There's one trip in particular I've chosen for sure Black Canyon in the White Mountains I may have to save it for October 'twill be some killer heat in the summer but it'll be a perfect weekend trip 15 miles 2 days moderately strenuous and full on solitude
