California Mission Walkers

The Hikers Guidebook by Butch Briery

Most mission walkers follow the route detailed in Ron (Butch) Briery’s book, “A Hiker’s Guide to California’s 21 Spanish Mission Along El Camino Real,” which he first detailed in 2011 and continues to keep up to date. This guide covers the entire walking route from San Diego to Sonoma. Most people find it pretty useful. The cost is $10 + S&H. If you would like to purchase one, send an email to Butch at

The Hiker’s Guidebook is also available on Kindle (all sales proceeds go directly to the California Mission Walkers organization).

Also available is the “Camino Serra Guide” that covers the Serra mission walk from Sonoma to Carmel, by Ron Briery. The cost is $5 + S&H.
