Hidden Highways - Northern California

Discover Your Own Road to the Unexpected

by Richard Harris and Ray Riegert

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 01/08/2005

Hidden Highways Northern California shows the way to adventure along lost highways, through small towns, and in wilderness areas. Eleven journeys are detailed, from Route 1 along the coast to Highway 395 high in the Sierras. The history and character of Northern California are revealed on themed drives through the Gold Rush region and the Wine Country. A special urban drive through the neighborhoods of San Francisco is also featured. Presented in a multidimensional layout with illustrations, photos, maps, and sidebars, each chapter follows a single route, as the itinerary moves swiftly from point to point. Ray Riegert and Richard Harris spice up the narrative with articles on local lore, historical facts, and modern curiosities. They recommend distinctive hotels and restaurants and suggest side-trips that veer off the beaten track to areas few travelers ever see. Readers can plan trips to coincide with unique events and festivals like the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival, the Calaveras County Jumping Frog Jubilee, or the Mendocino County Woolgrowers' Barbecue and Sheep Dog Trials. Includes 31 maps.
