A spectacular journey through the heart of British Columbia.

The Trans Canada Trail in southern British Columbia runs from Vancouver Island to the Rockies, weaving more than 1,000 miles through seven mountain ranges. In northern British Columbia, the trail follows the Alaska Highway for 650 miles, from Watson Lake, Yukon, to the British Columbia-Alberta border. Trans Canada Trail: British Columbia is a trail and outdoor guide for hikers everywhere, regardless of athletic ability. The trail holds something for everyone, and is suited for a day hike through one of the many entry points, or a month-long journey covering all terrain. With detailed maps and color photos, the book's 25 chapters highlight services, accommodation, camping, entry point -- and more -- for each region.

From the Pacific coast to Alberta, Trans Canada Trail: British Columbia covers everyone's tracks -- guiding trekkers through an exhilarating, distinctly Canadian journey.
