Written and published by Pamela Crooks, " San Diego's Mission Trails Regional Park: Official Guidebook" describes the park's colorful history, Indian heritage, unique flora and fauna, camping opportunities and award-winning Visitor and Interpretive Center. Pam also outlines the best places for visits with children, nature hikes, mountain biking, fishing and boating, horseback riding and picnicking. This book would not have been possible without the generosity of the underwriters, SDG&E a Sempra Energy utility, San Diego Landfill Systems, and City of San Diego Special Promotional Programs. A fold-out trail map and 25 recommended hikes are included in the 136 page pocket-size book. Archaeologist Ruth Alter, hiking/mountain biking enthusiast and Park volunteer Clark Rasmussen, and nature illustrator Sue Sifton also contributed to the first book designed to give a broad overview of all there is to see and do in MTRP. The book sells for $9.95 and is available at the Visitor and Interpretive Center Gift Shop.
