Join co-author Don Endicott for a 45-minute presentation on the revised 2nd edition of 50 Best Short Hikes, San Diego, the last book originally written by renown local hiking expert Jerry Schad, first published shortly after his untimely death in 2011. Don's talk will be a photographic and narrative tour of representative hikes from the book, including those in Mission Trails. He will share stories of times shared with Jerry during three decades of friendship and joint adventures and answer questions about these and other local hiking opportunities. This new 2nd edition features 50 easy-to-find, easy-to-follow day hikes from one to eight miles in length, overview maps for five urban regions and 50 trail maps, at-a-glance hike descriptions and complete route details, and GPS coordinates for each trailhead. Updated photographs by Don appear throughout the book. His presentation at the Mission Trails Regional Park Visitor Center will be followed by a book signing, and copies of the book will be available at the MTRP Visitor Center Gift Shop. A long-time hiking and running companion of Jerry Schad, Don partnered on field research leading to the first edition of Afoot & Afield: San Diego County and three subsequent updates. Don has contributed hike write-ups and photography to a variety of print and online publications. He is a Certified Interpretive Guide and Mission Trails Regional Park Trail Guide. He presents multi-media talks on mountain lions and on bats at numerous locations throughout the county and supports bat field work and public outreach for the San Diego Natural History Museum and the San Diego Humane Society's Project Wildlife.
