The Trail Companion
From the Editor
by Scott Heeschen
We wish you great luck flower-spotting this spring
with our flower guides!
And coming up in The Trail Campanion...
...as well as news of Trail Center events, park news,
and new literary works. "Along the Trail" will return
in the next issue.
- Summer 2000
- Long Distance Hiking in the Bay
Area: Long distance footpaths are a lot
closer than the Sierra (and not just the Bay Area
Ridge Trail and Skyline-to-the-Sea). Get to know
the Bay Area without a car.
- Fall 2000
- Exploring History: All of our
public lands have stories to tell. From one-time
San Francisco Mayor and California Governor "Sunny
Jim" Rolph's spread along the crest of the Santa
Cruz Mountains (now Skyline Ridge Open Space
Preserve) to the grizzly bears that once roamed the
hills, discover the history of our parks - both
human and natural.
We're always looking for contributions to the
newsletter-trail and park issues, hike/bike/ride
descriptions, book reviews, volunteer opportunities,
and literary works (poetry or prose) on wilderness,
the outdoors and human-powered outdoor recreation
(and you needn't be restricted by the issue theme).
Articles may be up to 250 words in length (feature
articles may be longer). We may also be interested in
reprinting or adapting articles published elsewhere
in print or linking to articles published
Submit literary works or questions to Geoffrey
Skinner, Literary Editor, c/o of the Trail Center or
by e-mail ;
all others, to Scott Heeschen, Trail Companion
Editor, c/o the Trail Center or by e-mail.
- Deadlines for upcoming issues:
