I can't put into words adequately how much I owe John W. Robinson and now his co-authors for the joy he and they helped me find in the wildernesses of Southern California. I lived away from Southern California for many years and now am back. Naturally, I checked out these two beloved classics, *Trails of the Angeles* and *San Bernardino Mountain Trails*, to see if they'd been updated. Yes, they have been, and they've been given new, sturdier maps!
How I look forward to renewing my love of both ranges again with Robinson & Co.'s help!
*Trails of the Angeles* covers many of my favorite dayhikes, especially Mt. Lowe and Mt. Baden-Powell. *San Bernardino Mountain Trails* took me on many backpacks with friends plus my first solo backpacks, and the book covers my favorite Southern California wildernesses, San Gorgonio and San Jacinto.
You can't go wrong with these two gems. See you on the trail!
(I'll append this review to *San Bernardino Mountain Trails*, too.)

This is probably the most thorough and well written hiking guide for the San Gabriel Mountains that you'll find. I can't compare this 9th edition with the previous versions as I don't have any of the previous editions, however, I can tell you that this book is rock solid. Although the author John W. Robinson is retired, he has turned over the reins to Dough Christiansen to keep the content updated and accurate. And the transition is seamless.

Unlike some hiking guides that give you overview information about the hikes, John W. Robinson (and Doug Christiansen) get into the nitty gritty useful hike details without going overboard. And based on the hikes I'm familiar with, the hike descriptions are very accurate.

Sure they might forget a detail here and there. Like forgetting to mention the famous "Echo Phone" at the top of Echo Mountain that everyone takes their picture with and shouts through. A curious omission for sure, but certainly not anything that would affect the quality of your hike.

But the authors DO provide the key information that you need to know. For example, I did a pre-hike to Big Horn Mine for an upcoming group hike and found all the hike details spot on. Even down to trail details like, "The old wagon road is an easy walk except for a washout near the halfway point that may trouble beginners and young hikers."

Along with the very thorough coverage of the hikes, TRAILS OF THE ANGELES also provides a lot of background information and history. Granted, some hikers may find this unnecessary and even consider it fluff, but I find it very useful, informative and enjoyable. All in all, this is superb hiking book. Along with Afoot and Afield: Inland Empire: A Comprehensive Hiking Guide and San Bernardino Mountain Trails: 100 Hikes in Southern California, this book will be a valuable resource for many years to come.

I've this book and John Robinson's guide to the San Bernardino Mountains since 1980. To me they are the easiest to use, have the most information, and best directions to the trail head of any book I have (which are quite a few). The 8th edition had some new hikes in it that are not in earlier editions because access has been closed to hikers by the land owners. The new map is much clearer and sturdier (waterproof) than earlier editions. Extra copies of the map can also be purchased separate from the book if needed/desired. This book is a classic and the hikes it lists cover and area from just west of the 14 freeway to the western edge of the San Bernardino National Forest. With this book and his guide to the San Bernardino Mountains, you have a list of 200 hikes that cover everything from desert to alpine wilderness hikes, covering an area from the 14 freeway to Anza Borrego State Park.

The book has a chart listing the hikes and their rating in the back of the book. This is handy so you don't have to flip through the book looking for 'easy' hikes if you're going with someone who is in the best of shape. The only thing I wish the chart had info on the time of year to hike the trail. Even easy hikes on the front range of the San Gabriel's can be miserable mid-summer.

Clearly written trail guidebook. Be ware that some hikes are closed due to recent fires (like the December 2017 Creek Fire in the western end of Angeles National Forest).
