Synopsis:

This second volume in The Aspiring Hikers Guide series is meant to encourage beginner and intermediate hikers, backpackers and scramblers to explore British Columbias backcountry in and around the national parks of Mount Revelstoke, Glacier, Kootenay and Yoho, along with the provincial parks of Mount Assiniboine and Mount Robson, with confidence and excitement. Aspects of venturing into these areas are investigated, including advice on gear, clothing, food and equipment; procedures related to safety and etiquette; and considerations as to physical fitness and first aid.

Routes and trails are detailed with colour photographs and maps, GPS coordinates, elevation gain charts, distances, natural landmarks and tips on arriving at the destination safely. Best routes to summits are described in detail to prevent confusion and injury.

As well, the general histories of the trails, routes and naming conventions for some mountains add an element of understanding and intrigue about the experience of the First Peoples and early European explorers who set foot in these beautifully wild areas of western Canada.

About the Author:

Gerry Shea moved to Kamloops from Vancouver at the age of nine, which is when he became enchanted by the nearby hills. It was on a family vacation many years later that he discovered the mountains and began hiking and climbing in his spare time, gathering knowledge and experience that he has since used to help beginning hikers, scramblers and backpackers to trek safely. Gerry lives in Kamloops with his wife and children and is the author of The Aspiring Hikers Guide 1: Mountain Treks in Alberta and The Aspiring Hikers Guide 2: Mountain Treks in British Columbia.
