Alpen Books 100 Hikes in Southern Oregon -
Welcome to the spectacular trails of Southern Oregon and adjacent Northern California! This comprehensive guide proves there's more to this scenic region than just Crater Lake National Park, the Rogue River, and Mt. Shasta. Come discover a hot springs in the hills behind Roseburg, a wildflower mecca near Ashland, and a historic cabin in the Trinity Alps. All of the trips are well suited for day hikers, but you'll also find 48 routes recommended for backpackers, 22 trails for mountain bikers, and 59 paths for equestrians. And don't hang up your hiking boots in winter. Special symbols identify 24 trails that are open all year. The book features a variety of difficulty levels. If you're hiking with children, look for the symbols identifying 54 carefully chosen kids' hikes -- trips that are easy enough for the whole family. Advanced hikers, on the other hand, can choose from 40 unabashedly difficult treks. And if you really want to get away from it all, a list at the back of the book describes 100 MORE hikes in Southern Oregon -- little-known but intriguing treks for adventurous spirits.
