    ^^^^ Ya there are some fairly close to LA, near San Bernardino and Glendora, and a couple are even closer. its a good all around book, It gives you a lot of info about the trails and what not. Its worth the $24.95

    Pick one up here http://www.funtreks.com/all-books and get the spiral bound for 5 bucks it will help you book last a lot longer and it's easier to keep it on a page if your on the trail.
