Review: Backpacking California: Mountain, Foothill, Coastal and Desert Adventures in the Golden StateUser Review - Goodreads
Great book to get you to the right places for backpacking. Once you pick a destination based on the info they give (which is all I'd want to know on first glance) you can delve in deeper online. I've alread picked a few trips for weekend backpacking.
