    Opened new horizons

    I thought I knew the trails in the area well but have found all new routes. And met the author of the book while on one hike.

    the best hiking guide yet

    I've hiked the Palm Springs area for years, but this book has it all! Great photos, maps, even trails dogs are allowed on. Directions to trails were very well done. I highly recommend this edition.
