Afoot & Afield San Diego County, 5th edition
Jerry Schad & Scott Turner


Since 1986, Jerry Schad’s Afoot and Afield: San Diego County has been the premier trail guide for hikers, backpackers, and mountain bikers. It describes routes ranging from brief, family-friendly hikes to multiple-day overnight trips in remote regions of the backcountry, providing equal weight to the scenic and recreational value of each trip. Each route features at least one or more significant botanical, cultural, or geological highlight with detailed information about what makes each one special. The book’s lengthy history as the preferred hiking guide for the region creates trust and recognition in its readers, while the variety within the book caters to a wide population of recreational enthusiasts.

Current coauthor Scott Turner has fully updated the book by re-hiking each of the routes contained within the book and adding (up to) 30 new routes to ensure that information for each trip is fully current.

Afoot and Afield: Atlanta, 2nd edition
Marcus Woolf


Afoot & Afield: Atlanta by Marcus Woolf sorts through a myriad hiking opportunities at various parks, wilderness areas and other natural areas and presents the trails people will enjoy the most. With this book, people can quickly find important information to help them choose the perfect journey, including highlights they’ll experience on the trail, the distance of the hike and time needed to complete the journey. Also, turn-by-turn directions identify specific features to help people avoid taking a wrong turn. Because many people now hike with a smartphone or GPS, the book includes specific waypoint coordinates, which people can load into a device to help guide them.

To give people a greater understanding and appreciation for the places they visit, Afoot & Afield: Atlanta also weaves in the interesting history of Native-Americans, Civil War battles, the Georgia Gold Rush and the evolution of Atlanta. Plus, it covers some of the myths and legends born in the North Georgia Mountains.

Leaning on 17 years of experience covering the outdoor industry, Woolf also included gear information and travel tips to help people hike safely.

Backpacking Idaho, 2nd edition

Backpacking Idaho, 2nd edition
Douglas Lorain


From Alpine Peaks to Desert Canyons

A virtually undiscovered backpacking paradise, Idaho has numerous wilderness areas of mind-boggling size. Backpackers can find complete solitude, wildlife, and some of North America's most outstanding scenery. Idaho's mountains also boast great weather--fewer thunderstorms than the central Rockies, less rain than Oregon and Washington, and cooler summer temperatures than California.

Backpacking Idaho takes you to what author Doug Lorain calls a "Shangri-la" for backpackers. In the craggy Selkirk Mountains you'll find lush forests, small cirque lakes, and jagged granite peaks. Watch for ospreys, river otters, and belted kingfishers in the swift Selway River. Explore hundreds of miles of trails in the gently rolling forested hills in north-central Idaho, or head to Hell's Canyon, the deepest gorge in North America, where you'll find both alpine tundra and cactus-studded desert.
