Description

"

A fully revised, updated edition of the Lower Mainland's bestselling walking guidebook, published in tribute to the late authors.

Since its publication in 1976, this classic has sold more than 85,000 copies. From wooded dales within Vancouver to seaside strolls along Burrard Inlet, from alpine meadows on the North Shore and in the Whistler corridor to rural ambles through the Fraser Valley, 109 Walks offers a route for everyone who likes to be outdoors.

In this sixth edition, longtime authors Mary and David Macaree provide walks of four hours or less for visitors and lifelong residents, occasional recreationalists, and avid walkers alike. Virtually every walk is accessible by public transit. This edition features:

  • ten new walks in emerging green spaces around Metro Vancouver completely updated trail directions and maps that highlight new features along the paths
  • comprehensive indexes that ensure a trail is right for the season, time frame, and fitness level
  • photographs and notes about points of interest plus estimated hiking times and distances for each walk

Clearly written, carefully detailed, and conveniently organized by area, 109 Walks is an indispensable guide for exploring in all seasons.
