about

A new, full-colour guidebook for outdoor enthusiasts interested in exploring the dynamic and awe-inspiring peaks and trails of Vancouver’s internationally renowned coastal-mountain landscape.

The beautiful mountains of the North Shore define Vancouver, but few Vancouverites know of the natural beauty and adventure that lies within them, or even their names and history. The Glorious Mountains of Vancouver’s North Shore: A Peakbagger’s Guide offers something for everyone, from casual hikers to hard-core climbers, from gentle ramblers to ultra-fit trail runners, to parents introducing their children to the splendours of nature, and to those merely curious about what is out there, so close and yet so far.

The book provides turn-by-turn route descriptions for climbing 66 North Shore peaks, including exhaustive facts and statistics, special cautions, first ascents, name origins, and historical and cultural backgrounds as well as little-known facts and secrets. Roads and access trails are provided. All peaks feature GPS-based maps, with elevation profiles. The glories of these mountains, creeks and lakes are enticingly illustrated with over 150 colour photographs.

Covering all of the hikeable peaks from Capilano in the north, to the Howe Sound Islands in the west and the Seymour–Fannin peaks in the east, this book will encourage you to hop in your kayak or car, on your bike or your own two feet to explore this underappreciated paradise in our own backyard.

David Crerar grew up on the lower slopes of Mount Seymour and now lives on the lower slopes of Grouse Mountain. In 2009 he created the Bagger Challenge, a contest to see who could climb the most North Shore peaks in a season. Since then over 400 people have participated in the contest, and that project led to this book. Harry Crerar at...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for mountain adventures in BC! Wow, the wealth of knowledge here is immense. I haven't put this book down since I picked it up a month ago. Although I'm traditionally a trail runner, I find myself gravitating to big hikes in the mountains and this book is the perfect guide to assisting with route selection and preparation... something I enjoy and spend a fair bit of time with. I also really appreciate the history of the North Shore having gazed at old maps in the past wondering the back story. This book fills that void. As well, I appreciate all the different ratings like "kid friendly", "dog friendly", "difficulty", "runnability" as well as estimates for time. Route link ups are great too as it gives me multiple options to explore many peaks. I enjoyed the book so much I purchased the digital copy as well to have it with me anywhere! If you have any interest in hiking the North Shore and want current & comprehensive resource, this is a no brainer and must have in your library
