Hiking the Redwood Coast

This is the Redwood Coast entry in the extensive Falcon Guides series. When looking for a hiking guide book of a park, we generally look for the Falcon Guide first. With few exceptions, they are very good at what they do, and we like to have a consistent format to get used to. Like most books in the Falcon series, there is also a much shorter “Best Easy Day Hikes” companion book, that describes only the shorter hikes. It is listed next.

Best Easy Day Hikes Redwood National and State Parks

This is the Redwood National Park entry in the extensive Falcon Guides Best Easy Day Hikes series. This is the shorter version of the book above. It focuses on the shorter, easier hikes in the book, although some can still be quite steep. There is less general information, and the trail information is more abbreviated, but if all you plan to do is the quick and easy trails, you can save a little money over the full guide above.

Top Trails: Northern California’s Redwood Coast

This is another book geared toward the hiking trails in the Redwood Coast area. However, this one is much longer and more detailed than the Falcon book above, and is new as of 2014. We use this book personally and recommend it.

Redwood: The Story Behind the Scenery

This is the Redwood National Park edition of the common “The Story Behind the Scenery” series. These books are very commonly found in the visitor centers and gift shops of the parks. They are short, but they provide good photos and general information on the park itself.
