This book covers Northern California trails in pretty good detail. The book does a good job of covering the famous trails and covering some less well known backcountry trails that even locals may not know about. The directions to the trail heads are usually pretty good. The trail directions are sometimes out of date and a little vague, but usually good enough to keep from getting lost. Overall, I definitely recommed it!

As a 27 year resident of Northern California, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by some of the trails I found in this book. The trail coverage is broad as Northern California is not a small place. This book outlines some of the best trails throughout Santa Cruz, San Jose, San Franciso, and all the way up to the California-Oregon border. I look forward to riding some of the far Northern California trails that are outlined in this book.

I use this guide to review potential new rides. Well, I have 100 to choose from!

For each ride, the book includes: Distance, Difficulty, Elevation change, ride-type, season, map suggestions, and comments.

There is also text for Highlights, Getting There, and Route.

✔ Honestly, nothing to complain about--highly recommend!

Just got back into biking and this book has some good trails. Some are underrated I think, one saying moderately strenuous and it was straight downhill and then straight uphill, no level offs anywhere. Where I come from in CO, thats not just moderately strenuous, thats difficult.

Overall, not a bad book. Wish they had a better map to show where all the locations are but it gets you started in the right direction.

If you live around here and like to line up a destination bike ride for the weekend, this book is for you. I've done a large portion of them and haven't gotten lost yet, and I'd say the degree of difficulty is pretty spot on.

I enjoyed several of the earlier sections focused on fundamental and skills and have applied the major lesson, "light hands, heavy feet," to all of my biking. However, later parts of the book focus on racing and advanced technique, which, for the average rider, is meaningless.
