Description

50 Best Short Hikes San Diego highlights enough diverse routes in Southern California's showpiece city for a year of weekly hikes. From sidewalk strolls and historic neighborhoods, to wildflowers and waterfalls, pleasant pastimes and panoramic vistas unfold in this handy guidebook. As the title says, these routes are "short." They range from less than 1 mile to nearly 8 miles, with an average of 5 miles, each, over all 50 of the hikes. And all lie within 30 miles of San Diego's central core. Outdoor author and longtime San Diego resident Jerry Schad takes you from the beauty of Del Mar Crest and Beach on the north coast, to the inland Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve. He guides you from walks in San Diego's Torrey Pines Beach and Reserve, to Rice Canyon in the south and the Hollenbeck Preserve in the east. Beaches, urban settings, nature preserves, and mountain peaks beckon locals to explore their own backyards and visitors to enjoy one of America's most stunning metropolitan environments. Detailed maps and enticing photos accompany each descriptive entry. Whether you have one hour or all day to stretch your legs, you'll find yourself turning to this guidebook again and again.
