What do you think of 105 Hikes In and Around Southwestern British Columbia? I welcome your reviews on Amazon and Facebook.

Here’s what people are saying about the book.

Taryn Eyton writes:

“When I heard that Stephen Hui would be writing the successor book to 103 Hikes, I thought that the publisher couldn’t have picked a better author. Stephen wrote a long-running hiking column in the Georgia Straight for years and knows a lot about hiking in this area. …

“Now called 105 Hikes In and Around Southwestern British Columbia, the new book makes some excellent improvements over the previous version. To start with, it has beautiful full colour maps that are much easier to read. Plus they have contour lines – so important in BC’s steep terrain! The book also has colour photos throughout, which I love. …

“Stephen has also completely cleaned house as far as the table of contents goes: there are tons of new trails! He has also removed some of the hikes that were in previous versions but had difficult access or just weren’t that scenic. …

“If you hike in Southwestern BC, you’re going to want to pick up a copy of this book.”

Vancouver Trails writes:

“Carrying on the tradition in the series, Stephen Hui’s 105 Hikes In and Around Southwestern British Columbia highlights several of the many great hikes in the region. …

“Thanks to Steve Chapman, the topographical trail maps are greatly improved over previous editions, including more local details and a consistent “north” to either the top or side of the page.

“A couple of other notable guest contributions to the book are Coquitlam Search and Rescue’s own Michael Coyle’s Being Prepared, which talks about how to keep yourself safe in the outdoors, and Forest and the Femme’s Jaime Adams’s Ethical Hiking, a piece on the principles of Leave No Trace. Both of these important topics were well written and nice additions to the book.”
