February 4, 2019 (San Diego) -- Join co-author Don Endicott for a presentation on the revised 2nd edition of 50 Best Short Hikes, San Diego, the last book originally written by renown local hiking expert Jerry Schad, first published shortly after his untimely death in 2011. Endicott will be speaking and signing books at Mission Trails Regional Park on Saturday, March 2 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Admission is free.
His talk will be a photographic and narrative tour of representative hikes from the book, including those in Mission Trails. He will share stories of times with Jerry Schad during three decades of friendship and joint adventures and answer questions about these and other local hiking opportunities. Endicott is a Certified Interpretive Guide and Mission Trails Regional Park volunteer Trail Guide.
This new 2nd edition features 50 easy-to-find, easy-to-follow day hikes from one to eight miles in length, overview maps for five urban regions and 50 trail maps, at-a-glance hike descriptions and complete route details, and GPS coordinates for each trailhead. Updated photographs by Don appear throughout the book.
His presentation at Mission Trails will be followed by a book signing, and copies of the book will be available at the MTRP Visitor Center Gift Shop.
