Book News
Girded by bridges, historical buildings, and winding streets, this network of paths also includes mountains, grasslands, and bucolic forests. Activist Rusmore writes for the many people who are likely to hike or bike along the Bay Area Ridge Trail, including nature lovers, amateur historians, and those who prefer to explore the area on horseback. She includes more than a dozen new hikes for this edition and covers more than 300 miles of the trail with 58 trips and Parks and public lands. Again, keeping her readership in mind, Rusmore allows for those whose strolls measure under two miles as well as those for whom 13 miles on the Bolinas Ridge in the North Bay is just challenging enough. She includes summaries of trail features, a trail sampler, information sources and contacts for parks, and tips on public transport. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
