With in-depth text, some 40 maps and close to 100 photos, the book describes the many routes in kilometre-by-kilometre detail - the Centennial and Trans Canada Trails, as well as many lesser-known trails and routes in the Okanagan-Similkameen.

The book features:

  • Backpacking
  • Bird Watching
  • Boating
  • Camping
  • Exploring
  • Hiking
  • Horseback Riding
  • Mountain Biking
  • Skiing
  • Diving & Snorkeling

and a myriad of other outdoor recreational opportunities!

Two of the Okanagan area's most experienced and knowledgeable outdoors writers, British Columbians Murphy Shewchuk and Judie Steeves not only give you the information on "where to go" and "how to get there," but have added the detail and background colour that helps the reader with the question "why."
