From bestselling hiking guidebook author (and dad) Stephen Hui comes a collection of fun-filled hikes field-tested by parents and kids.

The best thing about hiking with kids is appreciating nature as a whole family. But hiking with kids can be challenging when little ones get tired, cold, or hungry. This book carefully chooses trails for kids of a variety of ages and skill levels, ranging in distance from 2km/1.2 miles (great for toddlers) to 12km/7.5 miles (for older or energetic kids). All are easy to get to so kids have more time to explore stops at suspension bridges, hollow trees, ghost towns, beaches, lakes, and vistas. Each route features a clear reference map and full-colour photos, plus:

  • a description of trail highlights
  • detailed directions to the trailhead
  • a snapshot of the best season, difficulty, length, high point, and elevation gain
  • a fun fact related to the plants, animals, or history of the trail

The author will donate a portion of royalties to Take a Hike Foundation.
