The best thing about hiking with kids is appreciating nature as a whole family. And those outings are more fun when everyone is well prepared.
‘Best Hikes and Nature Walks With Kids In and Around Southwestern British Columbia’ is a book that can be useful for those who want a family hiking experience on North Shore and other communities.
The book includes a dozen hikes in North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Lions Bay, and Bowen Island. Bestselling guidebook author Stephen Hui has carefully chosen 55 trails for kids of a variety of ages and skill levels, field-tested by parents and kids.
These trails are also ideal for beginner hikers, seniors, and anyone looking for short and easy hikes.
With highlights ranging from a ghost town near Whistler to tide pools and sandy beaches in northern Washington and from limestone caves and old-growth trees on the Sunshine Coast to beaver lodges in Manning Park, these family-friendly adventures are designed for discovery.
Detailed trail descriptions, colour photos and maps, and fun facts help you explore safely, have fun and learn a bit about the plants, animals, and places you’ll see along the way.
Stephen Hui has been hiking, backpacking, and scrambling in B.C.’s Coast Mountains for 30 years. His first two books, ‘105 Hikes’ and ‘Destination Hikes’, were #1 B.C. bestsellers. Read all about his books at 105hikes.com
