Publisher’s Description: 

Discover 55 of the most beautiful hikes near Vancouver, each with an exciting destination to reward your efforts.

Stephen Hui, the bestselling author of 105 Hikes, shares 55 new day trips that celebrate nature big and small, including astonishing views like the Twin Sisters rising above Vancouvers skyline, intriguing historical and geological sites, and hidden gems such as remote swimming holes and a 600-year-old tree. He covers sites from Duffey Lake and the Stein Valley in the north to Washingtons Cascade Mountains in the south, and from Nanaimo and the Gulf Islands in the west to Manning Park and the Coquihalla in the east.

With each trail, Hui acknowledges the Indigenous territory it crosses, inspires hikers to look aroundat fungi lining the forest floor, at carpets of wildflowersand showcases stops of interest at nearby museums, wetlands, temples, and memorials. Each hike includes a photograph, a topographic map, a trail description, and a difficulty ratingplus an at-a-glance summary of special features and recommendations for kids and shoulder season.

A portion of the authors royalties will go to the Hope Mountain Centre for Outdoor Learning to support trail building and maintenance.
