For nearly fifty years, David and Mary Macarees iconic 103 Hikes in Southwestern British Columbia has been the provinces most popular and most trusted hiking guide, with more than 100,000 copies sold to date. Author Stephen Hui carries on the Macarees legacy in 105 Hikes in and around Southwestern British Columbia all-new, expanded follow-up inspired by their beloved classic.
With an additional selection of trails on the Gulf Islands and in Washingtons North Cascades, options for hiking with children, and rainy day recommendations, 105 Hikes covers a wider area and wider range of abilities than its predecessor. Like the Macarees, Hui provides detailed information about how to get to each trailhead (including transit options, where available), distance and elevation gains, estimated hiking times, and points of natural or historical interest. But he also includes all-new features such as an at-a-glance summary of all the hikes in the book; tips for hiking safely and ethically; clear, topographical color maps; a rating system for hike quality and difficulty; Indigenous place names where appropriate; and shorter or longer options for every outing
