In two months, Destination Hikes In and Around Southwestern British Columbia will finally be out in the world. I can’t wait for y’all to see and touch it.

Actually, I can’t wait to unbox it myself. The publication date is May 11.

Until then, this sneak peek will have to suffice. Check out a few spreads from Destination Hikes.

Each of the 55 hikes described is assigned four pages. The book provides:

  • “Hikes at a Glance” and “Hikes by the Numbers” charts
  • Complete trail descriptions and commentary
  • Detailed driving directions (and transit routes where available)
  • Distances, estimated times, elevation gains, and high points
  • Difficulty and quality ratings
  • Icons indicating each hike’s special attractions (big trees, swimming holes, history, etc.)
  • GPS coordinates for trailheads and important waypoints
  • Topographic maps
  • Numerous full-colour photos
  • Notes on conservation, culture, ecology, geology, and history
  • Rules and regulations
  • Kid-friendly and shoulder-season recommendations
  • Tips on outdoor safety, ethics, and etiquette

In addition, each hike comes with a recommended “Stop of Interest.” These are waterfalls, viewpoints, historic sites, local museums, and other points of interest — on the way to a hike or in the vicinity — worth visiting.
