I'm looking for a good inn to inn hike that I would feel safe walking alone. Moderate to strenuous, 8+ miles a day, in early April. I will get the guides here (they look great!) and we're moving to California so they will get good use - but since w
I just read through this book and would really like to make the whole hike. It seems like timing with the tides is very important. I reviewed the tide tables for 2017, and it looks like with the two week tide cycles in this part of the Pacific, there
My friend and I did the first trip in the Northern California book and backpacked from Rodeo Beach to Muir Beach to Stinson Beach. Unseasonable rain cancelled our last two days, Stinson Beach to Bolinas to Olema.

We are planning a last minute Mendocino trip. We have found lodging at the Albion River Inn for our start, but the Little River Inn is booked and both Dennen's and Glendeven require a 2 night stay even during the week. We are doing weekdays, no hol
We did a practice hike on the coastline of San Clemente and Oceanside last weekend. We discovered the sand was incredibly abrasive and I personally was not able to tolerate for very long. I tried initially using storm socks with sandals, sandals alon
