  • 101 Hikes in Southern California,Jerry Schad, 1996 - This book has been described as the classic book on Southern California hikes. It has accurate directions and good descriptions of the hikes and covers a wide range of hikes from the easy to the strenuous.

  • Trails of the Angeles: 100 Hikes in the San Gabriels, John Robinson, 1998 - This book has been described as the classic book for hiking in the San Gabriel mountains.

  • California Waterfalls, Ann Marie Brown, 2000 - This book describes mpore than 200 waterfalls in California, quite a few of which are in Southern California. While many of these Southern California falls are small during the dry season near the end of the summer, in early and mid-spring they can be quite a sight.
