Trails of the Angeles, 9th edition
John W. Robinson with Doug Christiansen


100 Hikes in the San Gabriels

The rugged San Gabriel Mountains, rising starkly from the edge of the Los Angeles Basin, provide a sharp contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city and its surroundings. Angelinos across the county (a population of almost 10 million), as well as visitors from out of state, welcome the opportunity to escape from city chaos into the quiet wilderness.

This 9th edition of the classic Wilderness Press guide has been revised and updated to reflect recent trail changes, and now includes trips in the Fish Canyon Narrows, along Alder Creek, and to Jones Peak, as well as perennial favorites such as Old Baldy, Mt. Wilson, and Devils Punchbowl. Each detailed trip description notes the distance, difficulty, and ideal season, and points out the highlights of the trail. The guide includes a companion 4-color topo map.

Utah Byways, 3ed
Tony Huegel


"With trips along soaring mountains and remote plateaus to high-walled canyons and plunging river gorges, Utah Byways is the ideal guide for adventurous travelers who want to explore the state’s extensive network of backcountry roads. This fully updated edition presents 65 trips in Utah’s spectacular preserved areas such as Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Arches National Parks, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Other adventures follow the routes of the Transcontinental Railroad and the Pony Express.

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.

Detailed descriptions are augmented with full-page photographs and two-color maps of each trip. Icons next to each description indicate options for non-driving activities along each route, such as biking, wildlife viewing, camping, hiking, visiting historic sites, and more. Trail-tested, how-to tips assist beginning and experienced backcountry drivers alike. This established and popular series has been completely redesigned with a field-friendly spiral binding and updated to include extensive GPS waypoints.

Walking Baltimore
Evan L. Balkan


An Insider’s Guide to 33 Historic Neighborhoods, Waterfront Districts, and Hidden Treasures in Charm City

Walking Baltimore includes Charm City’s well-known neighborhoods--Downtown, the Inner Harbor, Mount Vernon, and Fells Point. But in the voice of its insider author, the book also covers lesser-known and far-flung corners, revealing what makes Baltimore such a wonderful and fascinating destination and hometown. Full of little-known facts and trivia, this book will show how and why Baltimore was an essential player in the country’s early history and continues to be influential today.

This book also showcases a completely different side of Baltimore from the one conveyed in some popular TV shows in recent years. As in all major metro areas around the world, drugs and violence do exist in Baltimore. But the day-to-day life of the city provides so much more. Here is a city almost unparalleled in American history and it lives up to its modern reputation as a quirky, come-as-you-are and be-what-you’ll-be place. The zany Baltimore-based film director John Waters (of Hairspray fame) summed it up best when he said, “It’s as if every freak in the South was headed to New York City, ran out of gas in Baltimore, and decided to stay.”

As for the history, it lingers in 18th-century neighborhoods such as Mount Vernon, Federal Hill, Jonestown, and Seton Hill. But Charm City's cultural and political past is infused with a vibrancy well beyond the glitz of the popular Inner Harbor. From Dickeyville to Homeland, Guilford to Mount Royal, Hampden to Charles Village, Bolton Hill to Cedarcroft, and so many other neighborhoods, Walking Baltimore takes visitors and residents alike on a romp that will have many locals exclaiming, “I had no idea.” While tourist brochures often limit their scope to a few centrally located neighborhoods and sites, Walking Baltimore gives specific directions for beginning self-guided strolls in almost every corner of the city--with instructions on how to get to the starting points via public transportation.

Take a neighborhood such as SOWEBO (Southwest Baltimore): rarely will it show up in any guidebook or tourist brochure. And yet this one section of the city embraces the birthplace of American railroading; the homes of Edgar Allan Poe and H. L. Mencken; a 19th-century (and still functioning) market; a unique shrine to Irish railroad workers; and one of the city’s oldest Catholic churches, where Babe Ruth was baptized. The 30+ entries in this book introduce new and fascinating neighborhoods for visitors and residents, and they remind locals (and inform visitors) what makes Baltimore a wonderful place to live and visit.

Walking Boston, 2nd edition
Robert Todd Felton


34 Tours Through Beantown's Cobblestone Streets, Historic Districts, Ivory Towers and Bustling Waterfront

Boston is a walker’s town. It’s as clear as the brick red path marking the Freedom Trail, the bright blue signs of the Harborwalk, and the green of the Emerald Necklace series of parks. Boston’s nearly 400-year history has led to the development of hidden neighborhoods, historic sites, and iconic parks that tempt both Bostonians and visitors out onto the sidewalks, paths, and trails lacing this close-knit city. In addition, the Big Dig project, which helped revive downtown and the waterfront by moving Interstate 93 underground, has created an energy and excitement that has driven projects like the Harborwalk and the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway. Neighborhoods are experiencing new growth and positive development—and even established cultural attractions like the Children’s Museum and the Boston Tea Party Museum have had major facelifts.

This makes it an exciting time to walk in Boston. Walking Boston offers the best of Boston’s new and old rambles. Each walk is meant to be a complete experience in itself, encompassing the new and the old, the natural and the man-made. For example, you can view Boston’s newest and most striking museum, and then get a lobster roll from a delightful wooden shack on Fort Point Channel.

This portable guide features detailed maps for each trip, original photos, and public transportation information for every trip. Route summaries make each walk easy to follow, and a “Points of Interest” section summarizes each walk’s highlights.

So, go ahead, lace up those shoes and take a walk. Whether you follow a red line, a blue sign, or the Emerald Necklace, you are always on the road to something special.
