About the Hiking Guidebook
This 4th edition of one of Rocky Mountain Books’ bestselling hiking guides contains the latest updates to routes, trails and roads in the areas around Cranbrook, Kimberley, Creston, Invermere, Radium and Fernie.
The trails in the East Kootenay are between the Rocky Mountains in the east and the Purcell Mountains in the west. Some of the Provincial Parks include the Akamina Kishinena, Top of the World, Elk Lakes, St. Mary’s Alpine and Bugaboo Glacier Provincial Parks.
This volume will entice hikers of all abilities. As with previous editions, readers will continue to appreciate the author’s detailed descriptions and personal anecdotes, complete with colour maps and photos, related to one of the most stunning areas in western Canada.
Janice Strong continues to enhance the outdoor experience for hiking enthusiasts from across the country and around the world.
The hikes in this book are mostly day hikes or backpacking trips into the remote and rugged mountains. Some hikes explore flower meadows, glaciated landscapes or old growth forest and the short and easy strolls bring hikers out to appricate the lower elevations.
Janice's detailed trail and road directions and her enthusiastic personal narratives, help hikers of all skill levels to explore the fabulous region of Southeastern British Columbia.
