Boaters, hikers, equestrians, and shuttle bunnies alike will appreciate the newly revised: American River Canyon Hikes: Practical Guides to Trails in the Canyons of the North and Middle Forks American River. In its fourth printing, this book presents 24 trails in well researched detail, with trail length, difficulty, slope elevations and trail profiles, as well as parking and trailhead information. Hikers will enjoy reading about significant points of natural and historic interest chronicled in the book. The book is full of interesting tidbits such as the Foresthill Bridge’s height, which at 730 feet, makes it the tallest bridge in California.
Hiking along the American River canyons is a year round enjoyment, but particularly so now that fall is here. The deciduous oaks turn yellow and drop their leaves and the earth is wet and green from the most recent rainfall. This book is available at REI and other local retailers.
