Top Customer Reviews
However, the point of this book is that all that research has been done for you. You can pick up this book and get good ideas for simple hikes and much of the pertinent information without having to spend time doing all that work yourself. If this book were $50, then maybe I'd think twice, but for under $20, I have used this book many times to get general ideas of areas/parks/trails to hike. I usually supplement this book with a better trail map, but having information about much of the east bay in one concise book is very nice.
-simple guide, with breakdown of distance, approximate time, and a decent trail map
-nice range of east bay trails/parks covered
-good descriptions of the hikes, with more than just factual "data" type information.
-takes the hard work out of reseraching various EBRPD parks or other east bay parks and planning out routes, etc.
-trail maps are just ok. No distances are given on the maps, and lacks a lot of detail.
-no elevation profiles. In today's age of GPS and topo software out there, I almost expect books nowadays to have elevation profiles, or at least the amount of elevation gain.
-more of a "general idea" guide than a specific trail guide/map.
