A Beginnerís Guide to Mindful Hiking
Paula Phillips Marks
Guide to 52 hikes in four North Bay counties covers 11 hikes in Marin, 30 hikes in Sonoma, 5 hikes in Napa, and 6 hikes in Mendocino. Most trails are easy to moderate. Includes hikes in parks developed after our guide to Sonoma County was published in its Third Edition: Healdsburg Ridge Open Space Preserve, Laguna de Santa Rosa Regional Park, and North Sonoma Mountain Regional Park.
The first third of the book discusses how to be a mindful hiker and reviews clothing and footwear choices for beginning and casual hikers. Also discusses what to bring, how to deal with hazards and pests, trail courtesy, being safe, not getting lost, and what to look for as you hike. Written by the former teacher of the walking class of Santa Rosa Junior College, this info is well developed and discussed thoroughly.
