The Creaky Knees Guide Northern California: The 80 Best Easy Hikes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From hikes just outside of San Francisco to long strolls in the Sierra Nevada, this book covers 80 of the best easy-to-walk hikes throughout the region, providing elevation gains, detailed maps, and up-to-date driving directions. It also includes hike mileage and estimated hiking times, trail conditions, access and permit requirements, and ratings of each hike's difficulty, from "Stroll in the Park" to "Prepare to Perspire." Offshoot hikes are featured for those who reach the end of the hike but want to extend their workout. Written in a personal but informative tone by outdoors expert Ann Marie Brown, the Creaky Knees Guide is a perfect resource anyone can use to explore the beauty of Northern California without breaking too much of a sweat.

Ann Marie Brown has written more than thirteen guidebooks on California recreation. Her writing has been featured in Sunset, VIA, and Smithsonian magazines. She lives in Lake Tahoe, CA.

Synopsis:

The Creaky Knees Guide Northern California is a day-hiking guidebook filled with kinder, gentler trails. Written in a style that will appeal to aging boomers and anyone who — regardless of age — can't or don't want to walk as far as they once could or would like to, the book covers 80 of the best easy-to-walk hikes throughout the region.

Trails are divided into regions. There's also a section on urban hikes and walks.

For each trail, information is given on the following:

Elevation gains, including a topographical map

Clear, up-to-date driving directions

Mileage and estimated hiking time, trail conditions, effort level, best season, map references, exploring options, access, permits required, and where to find more information

Further directions to offshoot hikes, if you reach the end of the hike, but want to extend your workout

In addition, a chart at the front of the book compiles the hikes per effort level required, overall hike rating, and best season(s) to hit the trail.

Written in a personal but informative tone by outdoors expert Ann Marie Brown, the Creaky Knees Guide is a perfect resource anyone can use to explore the beauty of Northern California, without breaking too much of a sweat.
