Description

Popular Day Hikes is a series of books written for visitors and locals looking to hike scenic trails from well-established staging areas. These factual, attractive guides feature detailed maps and colour photographs to whet the appetite.

Famed worldwide for its natural beauty, Vancouver Island is blessed with towering mountains, thundering waterfalls and rich forests. Many of the most beautiful parts of the island, however, can be enjoyed only by those who explore its wilderness trails.

This unique and colourful guidebook sorts through all of various possibilities and selects for the reader the very best day hikes. Ranging from 6 km to 25 km and from easy to challenging, these hikes are all accessible from generally reliable roads. In addition, each hike is accompanied by a clear, colourful map, step by step directions and full-colour photographs.

Dotted around central and southern Vancouver Island, these hikes are varied in the opportunities they give for multi-season adventures. While some lead to spectacular peaks and alpine meadows accessible only during the summer, many others take the hiker along low ridges or past rivers and lakes accessible throughout most of the year.
