This guidebook explores 50 walking routes in Canada's British Columbia. The guide has a combination of long, multi-day expeditions through wild and mountains areas, as well as shorter, scenic day walks, many of which explore ares defined by native culture. British Columbia is full of National Parks and protected areas, and the walks in this guide venture into dozens. The guide is divided into sections which include: Vancouver Island, the Queen Charlotte Islands (Haidi Gwaii), Whistler and Squamish, Manning Provincial Park, Stein Valley Nlaka'Pamux Heritage Park, Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks, the Kootenays and the British Colombia Rockies.
The trails in this guide balance coastal and mountain regions. In an area so vast - four times the size of the UK, with only 3.5 million people, most of them in Vancouver - they can only offer a taste of what British Columbia has to offer.
The guideboook also includes plenty of practical advice on camping and hiking in the area, as well as survival tips for exploring the Canadian Wilderness, and plenty of background information on places of interest on the trail. With 637 provincial parks, six national parks, wide regions of protected land and age-old forests, wild mountain rivers, grizzly bears and sockeye salmon, British Columbia is a paradise for the outdoor enthusiast, and this guidebook is an ideal companion to exploring its mountains, forests and trails.
