At last there is a definitive guidebook for the magnificent and beautifully mysterious hikers' paradise known as the Redwood Coast of Northern California. In this new title in the Top Trails series, veteran outdoors author Mike White leads day-trippers and backpackers into some of the most awe-inspiring terrain on earth. Step-by-step in his trail-worn boots, the author created a menu of 57 diverse routes, from a gentle half-mile morning loop to a 29-mile backpacking adventure. Winding through Mendocino, Humboldt, and Del Norte counties, he guides readers into this landscape of lush, old-growth redwoods; picture-postcard vistas to Pacific Ocean sea stacks; winding descents to undisturbed beaches and mesmerizing tide-pool life; pathways to inland canyons; and untamed wilderness shy on humans but boisterous with herds of Roosevelt elk. For readers ready to hit the trail, this is the can't-do-without guide and for armchair travelers, it's 57 journeys into wonderland.

This summer will be my first in the last five that I do not go to visit the Redwood Coast. I've promised to take my wife to Pennsylvania and plan to hike along the AT during my time outside the confines of the classroom I teach in. But having just finished Mike White's latest book, "Top Trails (of) Northern California's Redwood Coast," I'm already regretting the decision. California's redwoods offer the most beautiful, peaceful, and pleasant hiking in the entire state. The trails in this book are described as "must do" hikes, and indeed, I've done the vast majority (nearly 75%) the routes described here. And yet, once bitten,... well, let's just say many of these have been done more than once, and this despite the fact that I live over 500 miles from the parks and preserves described in this book.
Most of these hikes are really strolls. Redwoods grow well along flat river bottoms, and this makes for lots of level flood plain walks, many of which are...
Very good info on the hikes of the Northern California coastal redwood area. Some of the longer hikes it was helpful to have another map. Everything I read was accurate in here, and helped me find some wonderful hikes. There is also some great info online, but you don't always have cell access and this book can be nice when you don't want to or aren't able to use the electronic resources.
A very handy guide with accurate and to-the-point information. Would recommend to anybody that is planning to visit the area.
