From the wild and rugges Lost Coast south of Eureka to the lofty summit of Mount Whitney, from the little-known Warner Wilderness Area in the northeast corner of California to remote areas of Yosemite National Park, Trekking California offers a deeper wilderness experience. This guide includes moderate treks that stitch together established trails for longer journeys and more challenging outings that require some cross-country travel and route finding to link one trail with another. Trekking California discusses variations on itineraries--including starting in the reverse direction--with suggested side trips and route directions for summit scrambles. It's chock-full of tables and charts for at-a-glance reference, including one that summarizes the distance between mileposts, a running total of miles, and elevation losses and gains between each milepost. This is your one-stop planner, offering an equipment checklist, menu planner, and list of photo opportunities for each trek.
