    What a great collection of hikes. All the hikes in this book are longer than 3 hours but less than 12 hours so that they are all possible to do as a day trip. They are not rated for difficulty or even the authors preference but there is a fairly comprehensive two page description of each hike with driving directions to the trail start that should let you infer the difficulty based on your personal fitness level. The introduction to this book mentions that all of these trails are easy to find and What a great collection of hikes.

The introduction to this book mentions that all of these trails are easy to find and follow, so I assume you won't need to spend a lot of time trying to follow the routes and while I might be leaving the 20% incline hikes for a later date, most of these hikes look like they have really great views it would be worth trekking up to see.

    My edition does not seem to be here, so I chose the closest one (my copy is also 'revised and updated 6th edition) but has a different cover). This is a great book for anyone who is hiking in Southwestern BC. I belong to a hiking club and I think everyone I have hiked with has some version of this book. This guide gives very detailed descriptions of each hike, including highlights, and cautions. The book also gives a fairly honest overall idea of the experience of each hike. At the beginning of e My edition does not seem to be here, so I chose the closest one (my copy is also 'revised and updated 6th edition) but has a different cover). This is a great book for anyone who is hiking in Southwestern BC. I belong to a hiking club and I think everyone I have hiked with has some version of this book. This guide gives very detailed descriptions of each hike, including highlights, and cautions. The book also gives a fairly honest overall idea of the experience of each hike. At the beginning of each description is a table outlining important information such as expected time duration, average grade, etc. so that you can plan your hike according to your time and the abilities and intentions of the group. Additionally, there are detailed instructions on how to get to each trailhead; some of which would be difficult to find otherwise. I have gone on many of the hikes described in the book and have plans to do even more of them. I recommend other hikers in the region give this book a try.

    Each hiking location includes a small map with the major roads into the area marked, as well as the hiking trails. A section at the very top of each entry has extra information like distance from Vancouver, average grade, how much time to allow for, and the round trip length. The descriptions of the trails are really thorough and give good landmarks so you know you're on the right trail.

    i have done many of the hikes listed in this book and have always found the directions, maps and descriptions accurate (unlike many other hiking trail books i have experienced).

    No excuse to rate this book or subject matter anything less than 5 stars. It is probably the best general hiking guide to Southwestern B.C. that I know of.
