3-0 out of 5 stars It's OK, but nothing special--basic review of 11 trips
I was hoping for a more comprehensive view of truly the BEST RV trips. Instead, it was more of a travelogue of the author's most recent 11 trips. Not necessarily what I would have considered to be the best trips. So if you have time to read the stories of the trips, it's fine. But I wouldn't use it as your RV Bible to plan the absolute best trips possible (which is what was implied by the title). ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not impressed
I have had this book for many years and done may of the hikes. It is a great source for the start of the trail but beyond that, you're pretty much on your own.

There are no maps, just had drawn scribbles that seldomly represent the terrain. Be careful to look for the indication of North as it is never to the top of the page as it should.

I just did one of the hikes yesterday, Deaks Bluffs Trail. The book is right on until after the third "Y" in the beggining of the trail but after that, you are totally on your own.

Instead of factual directions or prominate features, the author(s) get way too wordy verging on poetic. Sweet but it doesn't help you in the back country.

Anyone considering this book must realize that the trails contained in this book are serious back country and we pull many people off these mountains banged up, hypothermic and on occassion, dead. I feel that is by and large due to books like this put you in the high country but don't prepare you for whats in store. It doesn't suggest kit or proper clothing. A lovely mountian trail that gets clouded in often means you can't see fifteen feet ahead of you. Visual references are quite important to the less experienced.

It is my opinion that the author(s) should stick to writing "walks" books where the conseqences are less severe.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the three classics
Excellent hiking guide. Exact, blow-by-blow details for hikes within a weekend of Vancouver. These hikes all have trails. For off-trail hikes, where one navigates through the forest and alpine with a topographic map, compass, and altimeter, and for descriptions of climbing routes, use the book by Bruce Fairley (which is essentially an update of Dick Culbert's "Hiking Guide to Southwest BC"). Culbert's guide is out of print and badly out of date, but IMO a better, more concise guidebook. For instructions on HOW to hike and climb, try "The Complete Walker III" by Colin Fletcher, and on how to climb try "Mountaineering: Freedom of the Hills".

5-0 out of 5 stars Probably the best hiking book for the vancouver Region
I have worn out 3 copies of this book over the year. Very good selection of hikes within a days drive of Vancouver. Good directions to trail heads and acurate time estimates for hike completion. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars solid british columbia guide book
a solid british columbia guide book that i used as a reference while exploring the area for three days lonely planet is always gearded towards those not wanting to spend a lot of money and that perspective kept my spending in check

2-0 out of 5 stars Ordinary, even for backpacking readers
I've been a fan of Lonely Planet books since using them to backpack through Asia in the 1980s, but it seems to me they are in the middle of an identity crisis. Case in point is the British Columbia book, which I've added to my collection of guides to my home province. It retains the "Backpacker" feel but includes multiple listings of upmarket hotels and restaurants with scant regard to actually desrcibing individual places, which is why I buy a guide book in the first place. The result is a watered down version of what was once a great series, with the great descriptive and personalized writing replaced by page after page of listings that any reader could find in a phone book. For example, in the Vancouver chapter, instead of critical apprasial of the places to stay that appeal to budget travelers, literally dozens of places in all price ranges are listed, with little more than an address and price given for each. There's a privately run hostel in Vancouver that is nothing short of digusting and has been closed down and reopened under new names on two occassions. And yet the author lists this place along with the excellent choices that do exist as if all are of the same quality. I doubt whether the author has ever visited any of these places, but even if she has, some kind of description is what is missing. In a similar vein, out near the Vancouver airport, an RV park lies right under the flight path. Again there's no mention of this very basic information, just a phone number, address, and price. Finally, prices are almost always wrong. Prices haven't risen that dramatically over the last two years and as this is the first edition of the book my guess is that they've transfered information straight from the Lonely Planet book that covers all of Canada.

Further afield, in recent travels, I noted the same lack of perception in the writing about other areas of the province. It's obviously useful for young budget travelers to know which bars have cheap drinks, but I still expect more, such as some good solid descriptions of what there is to see in each town and coverage of all the great outdoors opportunities. These things
are sorely lacking.

On the plus side, the introduction chapter is very strong, with detailed coverage of history, geology, and wildlife. History might not be that exciting, but the author has obviously done her homework in this department. The maps are also much improved from the old days and even the smallest town has a map.

In conclusion, the fact that the author is not from Canada does not worry me, but she needn't have even visited to put this book together. Even if you're a young backpacker from overseas desperate to fit in by traveling with a Lonely Planet guide, I'd skip this book and buy the Lonely Planet Canada book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best BC guide I found!
After combing 3 other travel guides before my trip, I realized that my Lonely Planet guide had it all. Where other guides miss the mark, Lonely Planet nails it. Everything in Fodor's, Off The Beaten Path and some other one I can't recall was in the Lonely Planet guide. As well, Lonely Planet honestly tells you the truth about why "this" is a winner and "that" is a loser. Information was up to date and accurate and most importantly opinionated and honest! Had a fantastic vacation! ... Read more

If you are planing to go to the Nahanni country for any reason you need to read this book. If you are a fan of Patterson this book is fun to read as a modern guide to the river so you can see the photos of the country Patterson did not include in "The Dangerous River". The book is a a typical guide book and may be a little dry just to read for fun, but once again if you plan to go, get it. The author didn't write the book by looking at a map and reading a few stories, has been there and done it. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good research
I'm glad I have this book to refer to. No matter where we consider traveling, I have this handy book to know what's "out" there for us.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great general guide to places you might miss...
I bought this book back in 2001 for a trip to New York. Not knowing anything about "the city", I needed some help. Along with this one, I purchased a few other guides focusing on gay oriented places in the U.S. and New York, but this one was far better. With it's insightful mini reviews of places shown in the guide, I got ALOT from this book. From places to stay, to places to see, it'll give you a great base to start with when trying to find nightlife, or otherwise, in ANY new city. I'm taking it back with me again to New York and to Seattle this time. But, be weary, as with any guide, places change, and what you read might not be as bad as it says it is, or it could be worse! Thanks for reading.

4-0 out of 5 stars The listings are right but misnamed .
Just looking over my hometowns review I found them correct in substance but wrong in form. Cleveland has a neighborhood called "WEST PARK" that the book names WEST EDGE>. While not devastating to the overall value of the text it would leave a visitor here asking for a place that residents wouldn't recognize. I'm not sure if the other cities reviewed suffer from similar mistakes. Going to Orlando 8/24 and San Francisco 9/3 so I'll note any discrepancies.

5-0 out of 5 stars I'm gay and I'm proud of it!
This book enabled me to have incredible experiences with the most beautiful guys from the USA! If you want to enjoy your life with other gay people such as me, this is the place you should go and this is the book you should buy.

Book Description

Day 88 – 1,130 trail miles north,
Ward Peak, Northern California


"Boy that was a long way up!" exclaims the day-hiker, a mile or two from the road. "Where are you coming from?"
"Oh, Mexico," I say coolly, and saunter on by.

Faced with the prospect of a nine-to-five job, Natasha Carver instead decided to walk from Mexico to Canada. She followed the Pacific Crest Trail – 2,658 miles through the wildernesses of California, Oregon and Washington – encountering rattlesnakes and bears, and learning to survive with her own company. Based on her journals, Walking Down a Dream is a humorous account of despair, excitement and resolve. The book describes a geographical and personal journey through desert, snow, blisters and rehydrated pasta, and introduces several eccentric characters, including Staggering Willy, Wonderwoman and the Wolfpack.

5-0 out of 5 stars PCT Hiker
This is a fantastic account of walking the PCT. I walked the trail in 2001 and this book really brought back all those special moments. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in long-distance hiking and trail-walking generally.

5-0 out of 5 stars Multiple Journeys...
You'd think walking from Mexico to Canada alone would be enough of a journey to cover a book, but Natasha Carver's book digs deeper, exploring the journeys we go on every day when we make decisions and follow our dreams. Filled with stories that made me laugh out loud, it also contains practical information for hikers, as well as a chronicle of self-development, an exploration of friendship, and a unique opportunity to watch someone grow stronger and not give up, even with collapsed arches.

A very readable, enjoyable book that left me wanting for more.

Well done and congratulations on a fantastic debut... ... Read more

Getting Around Montreal

• Most streets bear names, not numbers, and signs use French terminology ("rue" for "street," usually dropped when giving an address, and "est" or "ouest" for east or west of Boulevard St-Laurent). On streets running roughly northward, buildings are numbered starting from the St. Lawrence River. Some street names have widely used informal English equivalents (Rue de la Montagne/Mountain Street).

• Montreal is a compact city, with a central area only about 2km/1.24mi square and few challenging slopes. Walking is pleasant during most of the year. In winter, icy sidewalks can be a hazard, and appropriate clothing is a must. Underground passageways (see Landmarks/Underground City) offer sheltered routes when it’s cold or rainy outside.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not so good!
Okay...I know the title of this book is "Hiking Hot Springs" but so many are left out that could be called "hiking pools." As you are searching for some of the springs in this book...you are passing perfectly fine hot pools. I would like to return this book and get my money back; too much information withheld.

5-0 out of 5 stars absolutely fantastic guide book!

5-0 out of 5 stars THE Essential Hike & Hotspring Guide for the Pac/NW
A finely crafted and up to date little hotspring book from a professional writer that has done all of her own research, hiking to the best wild hotsprings in the Pacific Northwest. Unlike some others who curiously omit or give lesser coverage to Idaho (which the cognescenti know has the greatest concentration of wild hot springs in North America), Evie Litton shows her bonafides. From shorter day hikes through Ancient cedars and Grand Fir out to riverside hot waterfalls and steaming turquoise pools to adventurous multi-day backpacking tours into the deep interior, Evie L always trail loops you past a great hotspring. Well deserved soaks, with ready highway access to trailheads, for road foot travelers, horse riders and even weary cross-country motorists with a half-day to invest, amid stunning scenery, where the people are plainly visiting and the real residents are moose, elk, deer, mountain goat, eagle, beaver, otter, cougar and bear. This book features good driving directions AND even map coordinates (!) - right down to the actual USGS topo's and US Forest Service sectionals AND where to obtain them. None of the other books are as "right and tight" in getting you in and out as this one. This one is a Guide from a guide. It belongs in your bag, so grab your shoes and pack a lunch. I'll be the guy coming down the trail with the big smile on his face and good directions to hotter water. ... Read more
