From British Columbia’s most trusted source on travel and recreation comes an updated edition of the most popular guide to the Lower mainland’s best parks, lakes, beaches, and trails, including new chapters on the Callaghan Valley and 1,001 Steps Park.
The best views, biking, beaches, and outings for kids—they’re all here in the fourth edition of the Lower Mainland’s favorite guidebook for day-trippers, described in the clear, upbeat, observant prose that is Jack Christie’s trademark. From Delta to Whistler, West Vancouver to Harrison Hot Springs, detailed directions help you find your way and enjoy the sights en route. This revised edition includes two brand-new chapters: Callaghan Valley in the Whistler mountains, and 1,001 Steps Park on Surrey’s beaches.
