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 Vancouver's 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 Washington's 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 around--at fungi lining the forest floor, at carpets of wildflowers--and 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 rating--plus an at-a-glance summary of special features and recommendations for kids and shoulder season. A portion of the author's royalties will go to the Hope Mountain Centre for Outdoor Learning to support trail building and maintenance.

The all-new, expanded follow-up to southwestern British Columbia's best-selling hiking guidebook--now featuring trails on the islands and northern Washington. For nearly fifty years, David and Mary Macaree's iconic 103 Hikes in Southwestern British Columbia has been the province's 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--an all-new, expanded follow-up inspired by their beloved classic. With an additional selection of trails on the Gulf Islands and in Washington's 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.

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.
