Trailblazer covers all the parks and wild lands north and

south of the Golden Gate—in San Francisco and Marin. It

contains 200-plus photographs, concisely written histories,

and cultural tidbits. More than 300 hikes and walks explore

the Presidio, Golden Gate National Recreational Area,

Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, Point Reyes

National Seashore, and several state parks, including Mount

Tamalpais, Angel Island, and Samuel P. Taylor. All Marin

Open Space districts are described, from the oak savannahs

to the bay wetlands. All noteworthy city parks are also

covered, starting with San Francisco’s renowned Golden

Gate and continuing with a long list of neighborhood gems.

City strollers can head for San Francisco to take in

Chinatown, Fishermen’s Wharf, Nob Hill, Union Square,

Haight-Ashbury, Palace of Fine Arts, and Alcatraz. Walks

are also offered for Marin County’s host of remarkable

towns, from upscale Tiburon, Sausalito, and Mill Valley, to

funkadelic Bolinas, Point Reyes, and Fairfax.

Bicycling sections take in both mountain trails and the more

leisurely pedals on bike paths and roads. Cross-town routes

are also given, making it possible to find scenic routes

across the entire landscape. Seventeen maps, spot-on

driving directions, and trail descriptions make getting there

easy. Extras include Doggie Trails and a Trailblazer Kids

section Appendices contain contact numbers for camping,

parks, museums, attractions, as well as favorite restaurants

and accommodations.
