Hiking Humboldt volume 2 is a terrific book. Rees Hughes provides clear and concise hiking instructions, punctuated by sidebars filled with intriguing information. The photos are beautiful, and the maps by Jason Barnes are the best I’ve ever seen in a trail (and road and street) guide. Even confirmed couch potatoes will want to grab a copy and find out how easy it is to take a wonder-filled walk in Humboldt County. Five stars! —Jerry Rohde, co-author of Best Short Hikes in Redwood National and State Parks.
