British Columbia is the custodian of some of the most spectacular wilderness remaining in the world, including the unique ecosystems of the Okanagan basin.
Judie Steeves and Murphy Shewchuk have fully updated their definitive guide to the region. There is a wide variety of backcountry adventures and outdoor experiences available in the province's Okanagan region, from Manning Park to Three Valley Gap, and from Rock Creek to Armstrong. With more than 40 maps, and over 100 photographs, the book describes the many routes in kilometre by kilometre detail — the Centennial and Trans Canada Trails, along with the many other lesser-known hiking paths found in the Okanagan Similkameen.
Readers will find a myriad of outdoor recreational opportunities including
- Bird Watching
- Horseback Riding

- Diving & Snorkeling (yes diving & snorkeling)
in this handy, comprehensive guide.
