One Night Wilderness Portland
See details
One Night Wilderness Portland
Douglas Lorain


Surrounded by old-growth forests, volcanic peaks, and water in nearly all its forms--from the ocean to alpine lakes, glaciers to waterfalls--the Portland area is a short jaunt from boundless adventure opportunities, many of which can be taken in just one night. This book covers the best one- (and a few two-) night hikes within three hours of the city--perfect for hikers seeking a wilderness experience without the commitment of a lengthy backpacking trek. Trips take readers to the lush Olympic Mountains, eerie Mount St. Helens, the thundering Columbia River, and the quirky spires of Three Fingered Jack.

One Night Wilderness: San Francisco Bay Area
Matt Heid


Quick and Convenient Backpacking Trips within Two Hours of San Francisco

Hundreds of parks, preserves, and protected open spaces infuse the San Francisco Bay Area with a world of unparalleled natural wonder. Straddling a remarkable range of geographic and ecological diversity, it provides avenues for adventure in all terrains, seasons, and environments. An overnight journey deepens this outdoor experience. One Night Wilderness: San Francisco Bay Area presents the 28 best overnight backcountry opportunities in the greater Bay Area, from the deep valleys of the Coast Range to the old-growth redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains, from the shores of Point Reyes National Seashore to the remote corners of the Diablo Range in Henry Coe State Park. And all of them are accessible within a two-hour drive from any point in the Bay Area.

Discovering all of these adventures without help would be a formidable challenge. Nearly a dozen different governing agencies manage the parks of the Bay Area. Regulations, sources of information, and reservation systems vary widely by park district. Plus, the proximity of millions of people means that hikers usually must make reservations at least a few weeks before their trip. But this comprehensive guide tells hikers what they need to know to get away from the city hubbub for a night or two. Within these pages you’ll find detailed information on regulations, agency contact information, crowds, and reservations for every overnight destination—plus human history, natural history, trail descriptions, fun activities, maps, and more.

Outdoor Navigation with GPS 3ed

Outdoor Navigation with GPS 3ed
Stephen W. Hinch


For outdoor adventurers who hike, fish, kayak, cross-country ski, or mountain bike in the backcountry, a GPS receiver can help them reach their destination and return safely--but only if they know how to use it! Here is the guide to getting the most out of a GPS receiver, from basic consumer advice to advanced techniques. It even includes fun solo and team games that utilize GPS. Starting with essential definitions such as UTM coordinate systems, position formats, and map datums, and moving on to creating "waypoints," and using your GPS with a computer, this succinct book teaches you what you really need to know for outdoor GPS use, including basic map-and-compass skills and primitive navigation techniques that you can use if your GPS unit fails.

Advanced techniques are also covered, such as creating custom maps, and new technologies are discussed, including using GPS-enabled mobile phones, (and why they won’t always find your position in the wilderness) and how to use GPS with Google Earth and Google Maps. With years of experience as a GPS instructor, Hinch is well-versed in all aspects of navigation and GPS use, and he covers them all in a jargon-gree, easy-to-follow style.
