This is a great book for people living (or intending to visit) the bay area, who like to go hike, bike, picnic and camp.

I've bought several books in the past, but this one covers a lot more of the trails in the area and with better detail. It tells you if trails are open to bikes and/or horses, talks about the camping facilities, details how long a walk you will have and the types of things you can expect to see out there.

There are also little sections on the local history, how the geology stuff works and many more useful snippets of info.

Definately the best book I've found for picking places to go walk, but then, it is somewhat targetted to the area where I live.

Incidentally, I found this little gem at my Sunday afternoon Cowboy Coffeeshop The General Store at San Gregorio. What can I say, the bluegrass band weren't up to much that particular Sunday, so I was looking for something else to occupy me while I drank my Kalua coffee.
