Where to go, What to do...

For the past three years I have been recording a number of hikes and trips for BACKPACKER magazine. I've traveled all over the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California exploring various parks and trails and have been wanting to catalog these hikes in one location. Finally, that list is a reality! Below is the list of hikes I've done for the magazine. Additional information for each hike can be found by clicking the link and reading the write up on BACKPACKER Magazine's web site. Venturing to these places has been a great experience and I hope that you will enjoy them as much as I have.
