Definitive guide to mountains of the San Francisco Peninsula, May 1, 2000
Reviewer: Louis Jaffe (San Francisco, CA USA) - See all my reviews
There is no other guidebook focusing on the coastal mountains immediately south of the city of San Francisco, a rich mosaic of open-space preserves. Taber's diligent research and love of the area make this an essential reference
A great choice for walkers in the bay area, December 21, 1999
Reviewer: R. Sagar (Santa Clara, CA)
This is a great book for people living (or intending to visit) the bay area, who like to go hike, bike, picnic and camp.
I've bought several books in the past, but this one covers a lot more of the trails in the area and with better detail. It tells you if trails are open to bikes and/or horses, talks about the camping facilities, details how long a walk you will have and the types of things you can expect to see out there.
There are also little sections on the local history, how the geology stuff works and many more useful snippets of info.
Definitely the best book I've found for picking places to go walk, but then, it is somewhat targeted to the area where I live.
