This is a great book for hiking in San Diego County! Good details about many places ( I would guess over 200 different to go ) to hike! Lot's of details about driving directions to get to trail-heads, where to go once on the trail and lots more. I am part of a hiking group in San Diego and almost every hike we go on is in this book. It has hikes from the beach, to the mountains to the desert, and all of them are well explained and detailed. Only knock. I would love to see more pictures and in color! A definite get for hikers in San Diego. Happy Hiking!
