Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After having to carry his 50-pound dog eight miles when she cut her feet on rough terrain, Gabrukiewicz researched dog-friendly places to hike in Northern California. The result is this list of 75 trails accessible from Redding, Sacramento, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Monterey County.

Synopsis:

Where to hike with Fido in Northern California: all trails recommended as dog-friendly and dog-fun! *Terrain that's canine hazard-free and easy on the paws *No leashes required on most trails and rarely a crowd to dodge *75 trails accessible from Redding, Sacramento, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Monterey County When Thom Gabrukiewicz's canine companion, Scully, cut her pads on rough terrain, he was forced to carry her out on top of his pack--8 miles with an extra 50 pounds on his back. Scully recovered, but Gabrukiewicz started looking at trails from a dog's point of view. They have since hiked more than 2,000 miles together, joined by sidekick Trinity. These trails do not require leashes (except in parks as noted). More than two-thirds of the hikes are on lesser known trails where travel is light and where you're unlikely to meet horses, bicycles, or motorized vehicles. They avoid steep, rocky terrain and offer lakes or streams as a reward.
