109 Walks in British Columbia’s Lower Mainland
There is no better way to really know an area than to walk through it. This collection of walks – as opposed to hikes – through areas in and around Vancouver, British Columbia is a great way for visitors to really see the area as well as for residents to get to know their home a little better. Walks are defined as being less than four hours in duration, having a rise of less than 1300 feet, and being on established routes. Each walk has a very detailed map, distance of the walk, approximate time needed, what kind of surface is on the route, the elevation gained during the walk, the highest elevation reached on the walk, difficulty rating, and appropriate season. Also included are vehicle directions to beginning of walk or how to arrive by public transit if that is available, as well as GPS coordinates. A nice description follows and might include alternatives one might choose during the walk. Some include photographs, but all are black and white and not of a very high resolution. While a very useful book, the writing is not particularly lively.
