California's National Parks
Some states may have high mountains, vast deserts, or scenic coastline, but few can boast all of these features. California’s glorious natural wonders are preserved in its state and national parklands, and chronicled here in this guide by John McKinney, hiking columnist for the Los Angeles Times for 18 years. In this guide, McKinney, known to his readers as “The Trailmaster,” has identified the finest hikes that each parkland has to offer. California’s National Parks describes over 150 walking adventures in famous national parks as well as those in federally-managed national monuments, preserves, and recreation areas. McKinney’s rousing descriptions of each park will inspire both first-time California travelers to explore the state by foot, as well as California residents in search of new trails. Also included are maps of each park, fun facts and natural and human history, scenic and historic photos, and the distance and elevation gain of each hike.
