With a total of 200 trips, Afoot & Afield Los Angeles County now covers virtually every hike worth taking within an hours 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. Countys newest urban-edge parks and open spaces.
