Having had this book a few months, I have found some directions are off. I'd suggest verifying the information from another source. For example, I spent about two hours trying to find a waterfall near Oakhurst based on directions given and eventually gave up. This book lists some man-made falls. However, some descriptions do not indicate the falls are man-made. Likewise, I drove an hour to see a waterfall that was 'closed for repairs' because the pump was broken. And, as previously mentioned, the photos are not much to look at.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Good overview of the falls around where I live. The hikes I went on had good directions and accurate description of the falls themselves. They do include EVERY fall, large and small, so there's some small fry mixed in with the big ones. Overall, I thought it was a good reference.Was this review helpful?

This was a great book for me since I love to hit trails with waterfalls. Unfortunately there are many trails where no bikes are allowed but at least I can hike. Whats cool is that I can find out beforehand so I don't have to haul the bike out just to discover a no bike-sign at the trailhead. As others said before me, the desciptions are just great and I don't think the pictures are that bad. :-)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I like this book because it cover pretty much every single waterfall from Fresno/Kings Canyon and up. The descriptions are good and I've had no problems finding the falls I've tried. As someone mentioned, some of the pictures are taken at low flow and aren't that impressive, but the important thing is that the facts are correct. I hate it when the writer talks about how nice a hike is but they won't tell you where the trailhead is so you can't find it. So far, the falls I've tried using this book has been dead-on and the historical anecdotes of each park are funny!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is by far the most in-depth book on waterfalls in N. California I've seen. Most importantly, the directions are accurate so you don't have to spend hour wandering along looking for the trailheads. A must for waterfall lovers!Was this review helpful?

I am not sure whether to give this a thumbs up. My biggest complaints are the inclusion of so many photos of waterfalls during low water times.Why bother? Also, many of the waterfalls are named seemingly at random by the authors, with no explanation given. One waterfall is named after their daughter who enjoyed the particular waterfall. Nice graphics and layout though.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
