Easy Hiking or maybe just more like hillier walking trails, but definitely about my speed in the hiking department at the moment. While some of these trails are the same or similar to those in other books I've gotten from the library they are nice to have all gathered together in one book as a collection of beginner trails to try out.

A good collection of hikes in the Lower Mainland area. I like how the hikes are organized into areas, so you can focus on where you'll be. The information noted is worthwhile for planning: terrain, approx. time, family-friendly (or not).
I do a fair amount of hiking and like having a book or two of trails handy for last moment reference. I will be adding this book to my bookshelf.
