About the Book

Few places on the planet can boast the diversity of natural landscape found in San Diego County. From the enormous Anza-Borrego desert to the Peninsular Range of mountains to the coastal wetlands of the Pacific Ocean, the breadth of San Diego County’s environment is truly remarkable.

Priscilla Lister, seasoned journalist, former newspaper columnist and avid hiker, guides others down 260 trails that offer beautiful scenery, physical challenges and an up-close experience with natural flora and fauna. You’ll find trail directions as well as historical tales about the natives and pioneers who once hiked the region. She also identifies trees, wildflowers and birds you’ll find on every trail. Included with each entry are driving directions, mileage and difficulty of each hike, whether dogs or horses are allowed and information on how to download trail maps.

Take a Hike: San Diego County is a comprehensive hiking guidebook that shares advice, tips, and tools that will entice exploration of one of America’s most diverse and beautiful regions.
