3. Book of the Month - Waterfall Hikes in Southern B.C.
There's another new local hiking guidebook to look at - Waterfall Hikes in Southern British Columbia by Steve Tersmette.
This book features over 100 waterfalls of the Kootenays, Okanagan, and the Trans-Canada Corridor. The book has great color photos and short descriptions of each hike, as well as a sketch of the route. There are no waterfalls from the Vancouver area, but most of those are already covered in other guidebooks. Instead, this book makes a great companion for your next B.C. roundtrip.
The book has a kid-friendly focus, with the vast majority of the waterfalls being reachable in less than 2 kilometers. You're sure to find some great new gems to explore with the family.
