Nestled in the rain shadow of Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands bask in the mildest climate in Canada, a mini-Mediterranean that fosters an abundance of plant and animal species seen nowhere else. Throw in panoramic views, inviting beaches and friendly hospitality - all just a short ferry ride from Vancouver or Victoria - and you have a hiker's paradise.Whether your visit lasts a day or a week, Hiking the Gulf Islands is the best guide to exploring the islands on foot. It is the only comprehensive guide with up-to-date information on the recently created Gulf Islands National Park - 33 square kilometres scattered over 16 islands and more than 30 islets and reefs. Separate chapters cover each island - including the often-overlooked Texada, Lasqueti and Thetis islands plus Bowen Island at the entrance to Howe Sound - and even hiking trails in the area's marine parks. Hiking the Gulf Islands includes:* Maps showing trail locations.* Distance and time of each hike.* Accessibility and degree of difficulty of each route.* Lists of shore and road walks.* Paddling suggestions for kayak or canoe.* What to bring and what to look for.
