5.0 out of 5 stars A book for experienced or beginnning trail runners, October 17, 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Trail Runners Guide: San Francisco Bay Area (Paperback)
This book helped me get off the pavement and start running on beautiful trails throughout the Bay Area. I recommend it to other road runners who are tired of the same routes along busy streets, or trail runners who want to discover new territory. The trail descriptions are enticing, with mention of wildflowers, views, and other sights and smells along the way. They also give a clear picture of trail conditions and route, with difficulty ratings. There are trails described for every county around the Bay. Several of my non-running friends have used this as a hiker's trail guide and sung its praises as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great trail running book!, December 19, 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Trail Runners Guide: San Francisco Bay Area (Paperback)
I've explored a number of new trails and learned new things about some of my favorite trails using this book. It includes well-known trails plus the more hidden ones. The trail and area descriptions are detailed without being overwhelming and offer great alternate routes for a change of pace or a different mileage. The natural history sections gave me a good background on the areas and things to think about while I ran.
I recommend this book for the person new to trail running, new to the Bay Area, or just wanting to explore new areas. I loved it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great guide, but it needs to be updated, May 9, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Trail Runners Guide: San Francisco Bay Area (Paperback)
The guide is thoughtfully layed out so it's easy to browse and reference. It's already introduced me to many trails that I would not have known about.

However, you must cross reference with current maps because some of the trails have changed since 2003. It would be great if she would release an updated version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trail Runner's Guide to San Francisco Bay Area, September 12, 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Trail Runners Guide: San Francisco Bay Area (Paperback)
Clear descriptions, great summary information, range of route selection, and tips on places to eat and snack make this book not only a helpful trail running guide, but also a good running "tour" book of the Bay Area. The book makes it easy to explore beautiful areas while putting in the miles!
