While 105 Hikes In and Around Southwestern British Columbia is the product of careful research, it’s rare for any book to go to print without error. Between editions, trails and roads are prone to changes to boot.

105 Hikes book cover

Accordingly, I encourage you to post trail and access updates in the comment section — and contact me with suggested corrections. Please share current conditions, such as snow levels and wildlife closures, in the 105 Hikes Challenge group on Facebook.

Note: The following list of errata and addenda is by no means complete. I cannot guarantee the accuracy or currency of this information. You assume full responsibility for your safety and health in the backcountry. (See the Safety Notice on page 5 of the book.)

  • Due to new parking restrictions at the Tunnel Point rest area, access is now from Sunset Drive in Lions Bay — the same trailhead as Hikes 17 and 18.
