February 21, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Local author, Bob Lorentzen, will be presenting updates to his bestselling book, The Hiker’s Hip Pocket Guide to the Mendocino Coast and answering questions about his other various publications, February 21st @ 6 pm.
First published in 1987, this now classic, bestselling guide has been thoroughly updated and has an additional 50 miles of new trails. Our most popular book details all the public trails on and near the coast between Gualala and Whale Gulch, including all the state parks and many little known coastal access points. This is the only guide that details all the trails of Sinkyone Wilderness State Park on the famed Lost Coast. This completely new edition has a new cover, several new maps, and more information about finding the magic along the majestic Mendocino coast.
About the Author:
Bob Lorentzen began writing and publishing in 1986 because the regional guidebooks people wanted were not being published. His four Hiker’s hip pocket Guides have set a new standard of excellence for trail guides. He’s been an active Coastwalk volunteer since 1987. Bob and his family love to explore new country and find new trails, and sometimes to simply sit and contemplate nature. He hiked nearly 300 miles on the California Coastal Trail Whole Hike of 1996. On that trek, Bob and Richard decided to write this book. Bob graduated from the University of California at Santa Cruz with a degree in Community Studies. (bio taken from Amazon.com)
