I’m closing out National Parks Week with a sneak peek at my new hiking guidebook — which includes fun family hikes in FIVE of California’s National Parks.

Hiking with Kids Southern California: 45 Great Hikes for Families includes my recommended hikes in Joshua Tree, Channel Islands, Death Valley, Sequoia, and Kings Canyon National Parks.

Hiking with Kids Southern California includes hikes in Sequoia NP, Kings Canyon NP, Joshua Tree NP, Death Valley NP, and Channel Islands NP — and many more great hikes for families. (And yes, those are MY kids!) Thank you for your support! – Shelly

And for each hike, I’ve included all the details you need to know BEFORE you go to plan for hiking success! You’ll see:

  • Multiple color photos
  • An easy-to-follow map
  • Difficulty ratings (from easy to strenuous)
  • Recommended ages on foot (from 2 years through teens)
  • Directions and GPS to the trailhead
  • Dog-friendliness info
  • Mile by mile directional cues
  • Even restroom availability for every hike!

Plus my detailed hike descriptions take you along each unique trail so you’ll know what to expect — and what cool things to look for as you hike with your family.

Of course, the book includes several MORE hikes in other incredible California locations as well, from San Luis Obispo County through Salton Sea State Recreation Area.
