Rail-Trails Washington and Oregon
Rails-to-Trails Conservancy


A new full-color guide in the official Rail-Trails series covers more than 40 outstanding multi-use trails in the Northwest.

Across the country, more than 1600 unused railroad corridors have been converted to level, public, multiuse trails, where people can enjoy a fitness run, a leisurely bike ride, or a stroll with the family. In this new guide in the popular series, the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy presents the Northwest region's finest rail-trails plus other great multiuse trails.

Rail-Trails Washington & Oregon includes detailed coverage of more than 40 great trails. Many rail-trails are paved and run through the most scenic parts of town. Others travel along dense forests, open fields, and lush waterways. Some explore the area's history, and others help users enjoy the serenity of the rural countryside.

Favorites noted by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy staff include the Chehalis Western Trail and Olympic Discovery Trail in Washington and the Banks-Vernonia State Trail in Oregon.

This full-color book includes succinct descriptions of each trail from start to finish, plus at-a-glance summary information indicating permitted uses, surface type, length, and directions to trailheads for each trail. Every trip has a detailed map that includes start and end points, trailhead, parking, restroom facilities, and other amenities.

Rail-Trails West: California, Arizona, and Nevada
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.

Rock Climbing Down Under: Australia Exposed
Simon Carter


Rock Climbing Down Under: Australia Exposed offers something for everyone that has any affiliation with rock climbing. Photographer Simon Carter completely suspends us in 21 of Australia’s climbing scenes. From the three-dimensional prismatic rock jungle of Coolum cave; to the eucalypt-scented crags of the Blue Mountains; the shady gullies of Arapiles with hexes clanging and belay calls echoing. Feel the gyroscopic giddiness of the Totem Pole; the parched desert wind tickling the ancient rock at Moonarie; and tremor under the thunderous force of the Southern Ocean pounding the granite walls of West Cape Howe.

Accompanying the mesmerizing photography are area introductions and personal stories written by no fewer than 80 climbers. Thread by thread, the climbers’ stories weave a magical sentiment throughout the book. Kim Carrigan, John Fantini, Dave Jones, Kevin Lindorff, Neil Monteith, Chris Webb Parsons, and Mike Law are only some of the 80 talented climbing authors found in the book.

The images taken by Simon Carter combined with the stories written by the most significant contributors to the history and culture of Australian climbing make Rock Climbing Down Under: Australia Exposed a textural masterpiece that will awaken all of your senses; an unprecedented exposé of Australian climbing.

San Bernardino Mountain Trails, 7th edition
John W. Robinson with David Money Harris


100 Hikes in Southern California

Southern California's highest and most rugged mountains are in the San Bernardino and San Jacinto ranges, in a unique region where desert cactus and pine trees, plus snow-capped peaks and palm oases, are found in close proximity. With the Pacific Crest Trail weaving its way through the mountains and desert, there are endless opportunities to explore Southern California trails.

After more than 40 years in print, San Bernardino Mountain Trails remains the bible for Southern California hikers. This updated guide by veteran hiker and author David Money Harris contains new trips, as well as old favorites—100 hikes that traverse San Bernardino National Forest, the Santa Rosa Mountains, and the San Jacinto Mountains.

This edition brings John Robinson’s classic guide up to date with the latest trail conditions. Eight old trails, especially in areas that have become overgrown after fire damage, have been replaced with recently built or more heavily used trails.

San Bernardino Mountain Trails
is noted for its comprehensive coverage of the San Bernardino, San Jacinto, and Santa Rosa Mountains and its meticulously researched history of the ranges.

Santa Ana River Guide
See details
Santa Ana River Guide
Patrick Mitchell


The Santa Ana River is Southern California’s largest river system, with its headwaters high in the San Bernardino Mountains and flowing into the Pacific Ocean more than 100 miles away. Since the area was settled by Europeans in the 19th century, the river has been diverted, dammed, covered in concrete, and exploited. Only recently have residents recognized the importance of this vital natural resource.

The Santa Ana River Guide reveals both the wild and urban sides of the Southland’s most important river. The book relates the river’s natural and human history, geology, and current conditions and provides all the information necessary to plan an outing on or near the river. It is also a call to action for further protecting and restoring the river.

Organized into six geographical sections corresponding to the river’s “reaches,” the book’s individual entries include an extensive description of each park and preserve, location and access information, and highlights of what to do there.

Sex in a Tent

Sex in a Tent
Michelle Waitzman


Couples going into the wild usually expect to tough it out, not to get it on. But people also go outside to seek adventure, excitement, mystery, and spontaneity—some of the same qualities also found in great sex.

Sex in a Tent is a mostly fun, sometimes serious guide to love, sex, and adventure in the great outdoors. In this penetrating look at what really goes on behind the tent flap, expert camper and outdoor love-maker Michelle Waitzman reveals everything you need to know to fulfill your wild fantasies.

Like an outdoor guide with her own special territory, Michelle has years of experience “playing the field” in the backcountry, and this book is full of her tricks. Showing you the best positions for campers (the tent tango), to recipes for a romantic meal in a Ziploc bag, to how to look and feel sexy when you’re wearing grimy zip-off hiking shorts and haven’t bathed in days (hint: zip ’em off and go skinny-dipping), she inspires you to leave behind the boring bed sheets and crawl into a tantalizing tent.

For those who don’t fancy a boink in the backcountry, this book covers other types of outdoor adventures for inspired coupling, such as paddling to your own fantasy island, making car camping the ultimate drive-in, or turning the woods into your outdoor bedroom.

 

Filled with illustrations, positions, games, tricks, and stories from dozens of outdoor lovers, this book will expose you to orgasmic opportunities for love, sex, and adventure in the great outdoors.
