9780898868678: 100 Hikes in Yosemite National Park: Includes Surrounding Hoover and Ansel Adams Wilderness Areas, Mammoth Lakes, and Sonora Pass



* A collection of 100 of the Yosemite area's best hikes

* 110 color photographs and 102 color maps

* Includes popular trails located outside the boundaries of Yosemite National Park

* Winner of the National Outdoor Book Award for best "Adventure Guidebook"
Yosemite National Park is a hiking destination know world round and this guidebook provides directions to the best trails Yosemite has to offer.
Virtually all the hikes in this book are readily accessible from major arterials, and there are explicit trailhead directions for each hike. The hikes in 100 Hikes in Yosemite National Park are divided into eight geographical regions. The regions approximate a counterclockwise loop, starting from the southeast and finishing in the southwest. Each hiking chapter is broken up in three basic parts: the information block, which helps you size up the hike by telling you how to get there and what to expect; the opening, which gives you a feel for what the hike is like; and the body, which describes the landmarks and trails, providing a blow-by-blow account of the actual hike, preceded by trailhead directions. You'll learn where the tough spots are on the trail, how much shade is available, and the locations of important Yosemite landmarks and special scenes you won't want to miss.
Roughly a third of the hikes in this book are located just outside the park boundaries, and about half of those lead into the Yosemite National Park. A handy trail index helps hikers choose from trails ranging in difficulty from "cakewalk to butt-kicker."
With extensive facts about plants, wildlife, and geological features as well as local history, each hike in this guidebook is loaded with outdoor entertainment and information.

About the Author:

Marc J. Soares is the author (along with John Soares) of 100 Classic Hikes in Northern California; he is also the author of Snowshoe Routes--Northern California and 100 Hikes in the San Francisco Bay Area. He lives in Redding, California.

Review:

The topographical renderings give readers a good idea of the setting they encounter, which is key to the Yosemite experience considering its varied formations...The suggestions for surrounding areas, such as the Ansel Adams Wilderness Area and Mono Lake, and the listings of the nearest campgrounds for each trail, are nice touches. (Reno Gazette-Journal)

The book's colorful, three dimensional maps aid in planning your hikes and give you a birds-eye view of the lay of the land. --Asheville (NC) Citizen Times

This new guidebook-perhaps the ultimate hiking atlas to the park-has concise details on 100 trails in Yosemite...plus 100 superb color photographs taken by the author himself. --Salt Lake City Deseret News

You'll be eager to lace up your hiking boots and pack a picnic after reading just a bit of Marc J. Soares' award-winning guide...Soares makes it easy to decide whether you might like a certain hike. --Sacramento Bee
