Comprehensive and easy to use, Moon California Deserts Camping and Hiking also provides "best-of" campground and trail lists—including Best for Kids, Best for Wildflowers, and Best for Waterskiiing—leading novice and expert outdoors adventurers alike to a wide range of camping and hiking options throughout California's dry places. Complete with clear directions to each location, detailed destination descriptions, difficulty and quality ratings for each hike, and helpful maps, Moon California Deserts Camping and Hiking provides campers and hikers with all the necessary tools to head outdoors.
