Moon Spotlight California Deserts Camping and Hiking is a 125-page compact guide covering California’s famously photographic deserts — including Death Valley, the Mojave, Joshua Tree and Anza-Borrego — perfect for campers or hikers looking for a a back-country campsite or a place to pitch a tent. Each camp listing has at-a-glance icons that indicate nearby hiking or biking trails, swimming, fishing, boating, canoeing, kayaking and hot springs. You’ll also learn what campsites and trails allow dogs. Hiking descriptions include distance, estimated hiking time, and a rating for difficulty. Easy-to-follow maps and clear driving directions lead campers and hikers to the best of California’s deserts.

Moon Spotlight guides are affordably-priced, lightweight guides covering a smaller geographic region than Moon Handbooks or Outdoors guidebook series. The travel content in a Spotlight guide is pulled directly from individual chapters of larger Handbooks or Outdoors titles, with no introductory information (such as When to Go or Planning Your Trip), and no indexes. The result is compact guides to popular destinations that provide travelers with what they need to explore a specific locale in depth with fewer pages of very focused information.
