Gisela Rohde

GISELA ROHDE and her husband Jerry bring to this project more than 20 years of experience hiking their local trails and a dozen years of background in researching the area's human and natural history. They have previously co-authored three guidebooks to West Coast state and national parks: Humboldt Redwoods State Park: The Complete Guide; Redwood National and State Parks: Tales, Trails & Auto Tours; and Mount Rainier National Park: Tales, Trails & Auto Tours.

Gisela works as the serials manager at the Humboldt State University Library. A Master Gardener, she helped develop a historic period garden at Fort Humboldt State Historic Park. She is also a two-time chairperson of the North Group, Sierra Club. In producing their guidebooks, Jerry and Gisela develop the trail information together, taking detailed notes and photographs while they hike. Jerry provides the human history information and writes; Gisela provides the natural history information and edits.
