TAMALPAIS TRAILS

New, revised, expanded fifth edition of the definitive outdoors guide to Marin's beloved Mt. Tamalpais. First published in 1990, Tamalpais Trails has been the authoritative book on the mountain. The California AAA's VIA Magazine called the book, "The bible of the mountain." Sunset Magazine wrote, "A well-written, reassuringly detailed guide to Tam's 220 miles of recognized trails. KPIX-TV labeled the book, "The most comprehensive directory to Mt. Tam."

The book describes 170 trails and fire roads, with natural and cultural history, elevation changes, and precisely measured distances. More than 60 loop outings are suggested, while the easy-to-use format opens thousands of other options. There are chapters on flora, fauna, history, geology, creeks and lakes, and recreation. A removable trail map, by cartographer Dewey Livingston, is in the back pocket. The new 5th edition adds 5,000 acres of lovely, wild lands, the Carson Country from Pine Mountain to Kent Lake.SOLDOUT.
