California Desert Byways, 3ed
Tony Huegel


California Desert Byways presents 65 desert trips from Bishop to the Mexican border, including expanded coverage of popular destinations such as Death Valley National Park, Mojave National Preserve, and Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. This book makes high-walled canyons, lonely ghost towns, and soaring peaks from Mexico to the Great Basin easily accessible to recreational drivers. Tony Huegel’s glove-box-sized Byways have been leading drivers to the hidden surprises found along unpaved backroads for more than 10 years. These books are for recreational drivers who want to use their four-wheel-drive or sport-utility vehicle beyond the pavement to explore, but who might not want to do hard-core or lengthy off-road driving. They are also for adventurers who use these trips as jumping-off points for muscle-powered exploration, such as hiking and mountain biking.

One Best Hike: Grand Canyon

One Best Hike: Grand Canyon
Elizabeth Wenk


   One of America’s most iconic national parks, and one of the world’s most spectacular places, the Grand Canyon attracts over 4 million visitors a year who visit the canyon and peer over the edge of the abyss. A small number of these tourists leave their cars and trek from the rim to the banks of the Colorado River on one of the best-known hikes in the country.

    On the journey hikers take a "geologic journey through time" and pass layers of colored rock and surreal formations that make the canyon so picturesque. Some of these hikers are adequately prepared for the rigors of what can be a dangerous journey. Many are not, and the trip can be deadly. The most popular route into the canyon is from the South Rim on the 16.2-mile round-trip hike descending the South Kaibab Trail to the Colorado River at Bright Angel Campground and ascending the Bright Angel Trail, with an elevation gain and loss of more than 9000 feet round trip.

    Although the hike is non-technical, following well-graded trail the whole way, would-be hikers need to be prepared for extreme heat in summer and icy conditions in winter, elevation gain, and other potential dangers before they embark on this trip. Author and seasoned Southwest hiker Elizabeth Wenk provides the authoritative, step-by-step guide to planning and completing this superb excursion with safety advice, insider information, detail, and reassurance found nowhere else.

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy


In this newest edition in the popular series, the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy presents the best of the West. With 70 rural, suburban, and urban trails threading through 1,050 miles, Rail-Trails West covers 60 trails in California, eight in Arizona, and two in Nevada. Many rail-trails offer escapes from city life, like the Mount Lowe Railway Trail, high above the buzzing Los Angeles basin on a rail line vacationers once took to a mountaintop resort. Others offer the pure sensory thrill of sweeping terrain, like Arizona's 7-mile Prescott Peavine Trail. Still more juxtapose the natural world with the railroad's industrial past, like Nevada's Historic Railroad Hiking Trail, which passes through five massive tunnels to reach Hoover Dam. Every trip has a detailed map, directions to the trailhead, and information about parking, restroom facilities, and other amenities. Many of the level rail-trails are suitable for walking, jogging, bicycling, inline skating, wheelchairs, and horses.
