The Hiker's hip pocket Guide
to the Mendocino Highlands

by Bob Lorentzenhikers guide to mendocino highlands

Includes trails in the Yolla Bolly-Middle Eel Wilderness and the Snow Mountain Wilderness

This classic covers over 325 miles of trails in 50 inland hikes exploring diverse terrain in six counties. Hikes near Ukiah and Lakeport include Clear Lake State Parks, Cow Mountain Recreation Area, Cache Creek Wildlife Area, Boggs Mountain State Forest, two Nature Conservancy preserves and other natural areas. Longer hikes cover all of Yolla Bolly-Middle Eel and Snow Mountain wilderness areas, with 30 elevation graphs and decriptions of 10 peak climbs. Lots of solitude!

We recently sold out of this title, our favorite Hiker's hip pocket Guide. We are now working on a second edition. Since this book covers more miles of trails than most of our guides, and since many of the trails are extremely remote, we can't yet say when it will be done. But we are working on it. We'll keep you posted. We hope to have the new edition ready by May 2008.

If you'd like to be on our list to notify people when The Hiker's hip pocket Guide to the Mendocino Highlands, 2nd edition is available, send us an email and we'll save your email address for that purpose.

240 pages, 4" x 9", 21 maps, 37 illustrations, four color pull-out map, index, 1992.
