Hike travelogues are grouped by location.
Selecting a location, e.g. "Sierra Mountains" takes you to a page containing
individual hike descriptions plus a link to the detailed travelogue itself.
Originally, these travelogues were written for the
entertainment of those who did them. However, interest from fellow
hikers visiting the Web sites has caused a change in strategy. The
travelogues now contain information on how to get to the trailheads, hike
maps, and in some cases, GPS routes / coordinates. Anyone seeking more
information is encouraged to contact me -
Anza Borrego SP, CA - Located in south central California, Anza
Borrego begins at the Mexican border and extends northward almost to Los
Angeles. It is a rich hiking environment for the adventurer that
likes to get off trail. Borrego desert contains a wide variety of
terrain an vegetation from stark desert sand to rock scrambling and barren
lands to tree, cactus and shrub choked ravines.
Joshua Tree NP, CA - Just north of Palm Springs / Palm Desert,
J Tree sports both low and high desert environments. There are many
old mines to explore, historic early settler sites to discover, and
endless rock scrambling
Grand Canyon NP, AZ - What can I say... the GC is the GC.
There are no bad views from any camp or trail in the canyon.
San Bernardino Mts, CA - Located NNW of San Diego and due west
of Los Angles with Palm Springs directly adjacent to the east, the San
Bernardino mountains are one of my favorite day hiking and sports car
driving spots. Important features include Mt San Jacinto 10,850ft,
Mt San Gorgonio 11,500ft. Despite the fact that this mountain park
is so close to LA, the visitor population is low. It is easy to get
off by yourself and out of the LA, Orange County, San Diego megalopolis
and into pristine wilderness with only a short drive.
Sierra Mountains, CA - Extends from below Mt Whitney in the
south past Yosemite in the north. Some of the most beautiful
mountain hiking in the US. Lots of on and off trail hikes are
Other Hikes - One-off hikes go here.
When enough others are written up in the same area, they get their own
grouping. Stay tuned!
