Overview

From the Carmel River to Hearst's Castle, author Barry Parr describes the region along spectacular Highway One—a region well known to motorists, who comprise the majority of the likely readers of this book. Aside from describing the parks, lore, history, and scenic riches, the author gives strong emphasis to the many day-hikes both from the coast and interior roads, and lesser emphasis on selected backpacking routes mainly in the Ventana Wilderness. There are sections on the best beaches, biking routes, equestrian opportunities, wildlife viewing (especially condors and marine mammals), kayaking and scuba, and some four-wheeling on the interior mountain roads.
