Kenneth M. Burton; Maps by Jason Barnes
Ken Burton describes 55 hikes, ranging from 5 to 15 miles in length, throughout Humboldt County in the first hiking guide to cover both coastal and inland regions of the county. Full color maps by Jason Barnes complement the descriptions and visually guide your adventure. Book includes hike statistics including length, ascent, access constraints, and dog restrictions; a brief description of each hike; driving directions to the trailheads; turn-by-turn hiking directions, plus photos, elevation profiles, and detailed trail maps. Book takes a minimalist approach compared to our classic Hiker’s hip pocket Guide. About 30 of these hikes are not detailed in our own guide, so it offers many new choices and a different perspectives on the trails of this great and vast county.
Explore primeval forests harboring the world’s tallest trees, sea cliffs, pristine beaches, towering coastal sand dunes, mountain prairies, meadows, and vistas, rivers, lakes, lagoons, and bays. Find wildlife galore. And solitude – plenty of solitude! Includes hikes in the western Green Trinity Alps Wilderness and other inland trails.
“... an indispensable guide to the longer trails of Humboldt County. He combines excellent maps and photos with clear and concise information. Hats off to Ken for helping us get out of chairs and get our boots on the ground. “
