Show Description

Tips and tricks for enjoying Canada from coast to coast to coast. Written by a veteran hiker with more than 40 years of hiking and backpacking experience, this handbook was created with Canadian geography, weather, animals, units of measure and gear in mind. Though it’s not a trail guidebook, it does a good job of describing walks in the Appalachians, the Rockies, up north, and along the coasts. Covers everything from trip preparation to walking techniques, along with advice on common things that can go wrong on Canadian trails.
