The tens of thousands of people who hike the San Gabriel mountains all owe a debt to John Robinson, who passed away in April at the age of 88.
Robinson wrote the definitive guide to hiking the San Gabriels back in the 1971, called “Trails of the Angeles: 100 Hikes in the San Gabriels.” The book has sold more than 100,000 copies since.
