The Best of the Great Trail, Volume 2
Whether you are an armchair hiking enthusiast or die-hard weekend warrior, this guide has something for everyone. Easy-to-access materials include trail instructions, maps, GPS coordinates, distance, access information, and an introduction on topics such as topography, trail etiquette, and more.

Michael Haynes continues his national trail odyssey and follows The Great Trail through the forests and coasts of Vancouver Island, through Victoria and Vancouver before heading east into British Columbia's mountainous interior. It expands eastward to the foothills of Alberta, through the grasslands of Saskatchewan and Manitoba, and finally along the unforgiving shoreline of Lake Superior. With beautiful colour photographs and comprehensive trail descriptions for each featured section, as well as GPS coordinates, full-colour maps, and informative accounts of points of interest along with way.
