Two books published by Rocky Mountain Books lure us outdoors to be active in some of the most beautiful spots of Vancouver Island. SEASIDE WALKS ON VANCOUVER ISLAND and POPULAR DAY HIKES 4, VANCOUVER ISLAND provide directions, maps, and extensive access information.
Publisher’s notes on Seaside Walks:
“This is the perfect book for those who love to explore the seashore but also love walking through forests and seaside meadows. Whether discovering inviting stretches of sandy beach, hiking along rugged cliffs or strolling through quiet estuaries, visitors to these trails will usually be far away from the crowds who chose to drive directly to the more popular, touristy beaches.
Each of the walks in this book is accompanied by a colourful, easy-to-follow map and step by step descriptions of what to expect.”
Publisher’s notes on Popular Day Hikes:
“This unique and colourful guidebook sorts through all of various possibilities and selects for the reader the very best day hikes. Ranging from 6 km to 25 km and from easy to challenging, these hikes are all accessible from generally reliable roads. In addition, each hike is accompanied by a clear, colourful map, step by step directions and full-colour photographs.”
