Format: Paperback
Every time I visit Point Reyes I am absolutely amazed at how rural and isolated this area feels compared to the sprawling Bay Area metropolis just 45 minutes or so away. Point Reyes has it all: year round recreation, lots of marine and land animals, beautiful flower displays, historic ranches, and a wonderful guidebook by Jessica Lage. I've visited the National Seashore on three separate occasions and am planning a fourth vacation there this summer. This book will be my resource for planning that trip.

When I buy I travel guides, the first thing I look for is outdoor recreation, particularly hiking. Lage's book provides an excellent selection of hikes on the Park's 140 miles of trail. She gives detailed route descriptions for 32 trails within the Park boundaries and additional backpacking options. Large topographical maps accompany the text. But what makes this guidebook so much more impressive than similar volumes from Wilderness Press is the attention that Lage devotes to other wonderful experiences at Point Reyes. Epicureans will enjoy the listings of ranches and farmer's markets where tourists can sample homemade cheeses, butter, and organic produce as well as local oysters from Tomales Bay. Those interested in watersports will find the list of kayak rental companies and the fishing information invaluable. Wildlife observers will appreciate Lage's descriptions of where (and when) to view the Tule Elk, the Coho Salmon and Steelhead runs, and whale watching. Lage also discusses the best seasons for wildflower walks and bird watching.

In addition to recreation, Lage devotes two chapters to human and natural history. In these chapters we learn that the peninsula was at one time part of Monterey Bay, but it has moved northward with the San Andreas fault.

This is not an ordinary guidebook. The author's thorough knowledge and appreciation of the magnificent Point Reyes seashore shows on every page. Any visitor to the rural/wilderness parkland just north of urban San Francisco will appreciate the information about the rich natural and human history of Point Reyes and the current art and food scene which has grown up around the seashore. Plus clearly written guides to every hike imaginable in the seashore and surrounds, as well as information about hiking, biking, horseback riding, and kayaking.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Does a really excellent job of giving information about hikes in the park, including categorizing them according to such criteria as "good for first time trips" and "hikes for a foggy day: to escape the fog and to revel in the fog." Also does include a few hikes in the surrounding state parks.

On the downside, description of hiking and other outdoors activity is the only topic in the book, and there's no mention of places to stay, the little towns in the area, restaurants, et c. While obviously that info goes out of date faster than description of hiking trails, it would still be nice to have at least a brief mention of the towns and a list of restaurants and lodgings.
