Join us, author Stephen Hui and AdventureSmart for the book launch of Best Hikes and Nature Walks With Kids In and Around Southwestern British Columbia, a new guide to 55 fun hikes near Vancouver, field-tested by parents and kids.
The best thing about hiking with kids is appreciating nature as a whole family. And those outings are more fun when everyone is well prepared. Bestselling guidebook author Stephen Hui has carefully chosen 55 trails for kids of a variety of ages and skill levels.
With highlights ranging from a ghost town near Whistler to tide pools and sandy beaches in northern Washington and from limestone caves and old-growth trees on the Sunshine Coast to beaver lodges in Manning Park, these family-friendly adventures are designed for discovery. Detailed trail descriptions, colour photos and maps, and fun facts help you explore safely, have fun and learn a bit about the plants, animals, and places you’ll see along the way.
AdventureSmart will be doing an opening presentation about outdoor safety for kids.
The new book will be available for sale and signing by the author at the event
