101 Hikes in Northern California by Matt Heid benefits readers by narrowing down the nearly infinite options for hiking in Northern California to the very best of the best adventures. It is distinct from other similar guidebooks in that it covers the northern two-thirds of the state, including nearly the entirety of the Sierra Nevada south to Kings Canyon National Park and the entire Big Sur region along the coast south to Silver Peak Wilderness. It also provides significant geographic diversity; hikes are spread out across the entire region. No matter where you are in northern California, you can find a hike in the book within a short drive. The guide is unique in the amount of natural history information it provides, especially the geologic stories of the featured destinations. It provides not just the essential directions for completing a hike, it enhances the experience by telling the story of how the landscape came to be the way it is.
