Wilderness Press :: Hiking :: Afoot & Afield in Los Angeles County, 3ed
Afoot & Afield in Los Angeles County, 3ed
Afoot & Afield in Los Angeles County, 3ed 
With a total of 200 trips, Afoot & Afield Los Angeles County now covers virtually every hike worth taking within an hour’s drive of the urban edge of Los Angeles or its close-in suburbs. Hit the trail and discover Pacific tidepools; dramatic sandstone formations in the Santa Monica Mountains; valley and ocean views from urban open spaces such as Griffith Park; and a wealth of rock-ribbed canyons and cascading waterfalls in the San Gabriel Mountains. Written by Southland hiking guru Jerry Schad, this guidebook contains both the beta and the inspiration for getting active in the hundreds of miles of trails in the LA area. Each hike includes essential information and explicit driving directions. For ease of use, all hikes are grouped into 29 chapters (regions) within the county, each with its own chapter map and introductory information. The third edition features 24 new hikes, emphasizing exploration of L.A. County’s newest urban-edge parks and open spaces.

About Jerry Schad
Jerry Schad's several careers encompassed interests ranging from astronomy and teaching to photography and writing. Schad was the author of 15 books, including a college-level textbook for introductory physical science courses and the top-selling Afoot & Afield series of hiking guidebooks that cover nearly all of Southern California. Schad’s outdoor column, “Roam-O-Rama,” was published weekly in the San Diego Reader 1993–2011, and his San Diego Reader blog, “Outdoor San Diego,” kept San Diegans up-to-date on a variety of natural events in the sky and on earth. In the months preceding his death at age 61 from kidney cancer, Schad worked tirelessly and with courageous joy and spirit to complete his last book 50 Best Short Hikes San Diego.
