Day and Section Hikes Pacific Crest Trail: Oregon, 3rd edition
Paul Gerald


Discover the best PCT sections for a day hike or weekend jaunt

Sweeping views, glorious meadows, towering peaks, countless lakes and waterfalls, Oregon’s portion of the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail includes some of the most beautiful hikes in the country. Let local hiking expert Paul Gerald guide you to the best of them. You’ll find 28 day and overnight hikes, from a four-mile trip up Chinidere Mountain—with views stretching from Mount Jefferson to Mount Rainier—to a 30-mile trek to the incomparable Maidu Lake, the headwaters of the North Umpqua River.

This comprehensive guidebook includes trail maps and elevation profiles, as well as ratings for scenery, difficulty, solitude, trail condition, and accessibility for children. You’ll also find driving directions to trailheads, GPS waypoints for key locations, permit and fee instructions, and details about what to expect on the trail.

Traverse the “high road” through Oregon as the PCT crosses Mount Hood National Forest, Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, Crater Lake National Park, and so much more. Every trip is another adventure.

Day and Section Hikes Pacific Crest Trail: Southern California

Day and Section Hikes Pacific Crest Trail: Southern California
David Harris


A succinct, portable guide to the best segments of the Pacific Crest Trail in Southern California.

The Pacific Crest Trail was designated as one of the first National Scenic Trails way back in 1968. As it traverses the “high road” from Mexico to Canada, incredible views are not only commonplace but also uniquely diverse, because the trail connects six of North America’s seven eco-zones. The PCT’s familiar, well-worn path is a special place for hikers from all walks of life on walks of all lengths and for all reasons.

Instead of guiding you through the arduous task of hiking the entire PCT, the goal of this book is to help you plan trips that incorporate hiking on the PCT in Southern California, whether you have just an afternoon to spare or you want to escape for the entire weekend. 

Carefully edited maps and elevation graphs generated with GPS data collected by the author on the trail will help make your trip a success.

This cargo-pocket guide offers author-tested advice to help you make the most of your time away from civilization, however long (or short) that stretch may be.

Down by the Los Angeles River
Joe Linton


In the last decade millions of dollars have been spent on restoring and revitalizing the Los Angeles River and its surroundings. Dozens of parks, miles of bike trails, public art installations and hundreds of trees and plants follow the river as it winds 51 miles through more than 100 communities. Until now no guidebook offered information on the resources along the river. Down by the Los Angeles River is the first on-the-ground guide to checking out sites new and old, and getting to know the historic river that runs through greater L.A. The book includes striking original illustrations as well as maps. Twenty-seven walks and twelve bike rides along the Los Angeles and its tributaries, each with directions to the starting point and descriptions of natural, historic, and artistic features along the way. The river paths are already popular for walkers and joggers, bicyclists, dog-walkers, historians and bird-watchers—a readymade audience for this one-of-a-kind book.

Final Flight

Final Flight
Peter Stekel


In October 2005, two mountaineers were climbing the icy couloir above Mendel Glacier in the High Sierra. They never made it. They found a body instead, the remarkably well-preserved remains of a man in a WWII uniform, frozen in the ice. The “iceman” immediately gripped the attention of the nation and a media storm ensued. Who was the Frozen Airman? Where did he come from and how did he get there? The mystery drew writer and Sierra devotee Peter Stekel deeper and deeper as he investigated: A navigation training flight missing since 1942 with its four-man crew. A crash site 150 miles off-course from its reported destination. Early attempts at recovery thwarted. Empty graves and botched records. Bad weather, bad luck, bad timing. Families waiting, long forgotten.

Then, in 2007, the unthinkable happened again. Stekel himself discovered a second body in the glacier. Another young man would finally be coming home. Through years of archival research, interviews, conjecture, and his own mountaineering trips to the crash site, Stekel uncovered who these four young men were who had lost their lives in service to their country. Final Flight explores the story of the ill-fated flight, and the bad leads and misinformation surrounding it for over 60 years. It’s also author Peter Stekel’s personal quest to investigate the many threads of the story, from the crew’s disappearance to the discovery of the two airmen.

Along the way Stekel became convinced that the accepted facts of how these soldiers went missing did not give the whole story. The only way to find out for sure what happened was to discover all he could about these young men and their times, the war-era military they enlisted in, their training and experience, their Beech 18 aircraft, the state of navigation and weather science at midcentury, and their icy tomb. The book deftly weaves these threads into a gripping account that’s part mystery, part history, and a personal journey to uncover the truth of what happened on Nov. 18, 1942. In the process Stekel rewrites the young aviators' last days and takes us on their final flight.
