From its humble beginnings in 1811 as the earliest fur-trade post in the central Rockies, to CanadaOCOs third most visited national park, Jasper National Park offers a distinctive Rocky Mountain experience. The largest -11,228 square kilometres (4,335 square miles) - and most northerly Canadian Rockies National Park includes the foothills to the east, the Continental divide to the west along the Alberta/British Columbia border and extends to the Columbia Icefield in the south. The mighty Athabasca River, a Canadian Heritage River, flows north and east from its origin at the toe of the Columbia Glacier through Jasper Park for 168 km (104 miles) toward the Arctic Ocean. If, heaven forbid, you are only able to visit one Rocky Mountain Park, I recommend this one. Jasper offers more than 1,300 kilometres (808 miles) of superb walking, hiking and backpacking trails in the front and backcountries and excellent opportunities for wildlife viewing. Snow-capped peaks, an abundance of waterfalls, expansive valleys, sparkling glacial lakes and soothing hot springs fill the landscape. The town is less commercialized than its sister park Banff, yet if offers a full complement of tourist services including many restaurants, diverse accommodations and a variety of attractions and shopping. The author grew up in the Canadian Rockies and has been exploring them since she was a child. The Canadian Rockies are one of the world's most popular tourist destinations, with four million visitors annually. Covered in detail here are all the great parks of Alberta and British Columbia. Easily accessible adventures include walking, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, boating, horseback riding, skiing and wildlife viewing -- with some of the most spectacular animals in North America. Where else can you spend the morning hiking through spectacular wilderness and by afternoon enjoy high tea in one of the grand hotels? The guide is filled with inside information on how to avoid the tourist traps and where to find the special places off the beaten path that the tourists don't know about; the most worthwhile outdoor adventures and indoor activities; the hotels and restaurants at all price levels that are the very best; plus tips on places to avoid. Each chapter covers transportation to and around the park, where to stay and eat, attractions and shopping, plus adventures, from drives to day hikes, rafting to cycling. Competing guides focus on the standard tourist sites (where the crowds can ruin your experience), while we take you to the lesser-known spots (restaurants, lodges, hiking paths), which are often more rewarding. We travel to grow OCo our Adventure Guides show you how. Experience the places you visit more directly, freshly, intensely than you would otherwise OCo sometimes best done on foot, in a canoe, or through cultural adventures like art courses, cooking classes, learning the language, meeting the people, joining in the festivals and celebrations. This can make your trip life-changing, unforgettable. All of the detailed information you need is here about the hotels, restaurants, shopping, sightseeing. But we also lead you to new discoveries, turning corners you haven't turned before, helping you to interact with the world in new ways. That's what makes our Adventure Guides unique. The Canadian Rockies see about four million visitors annually. Easily accessible adventures include walking, hiking and backpacking; mountain biking and bicycle touring; fishing, boating and rafting; horseback riding; skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing; and so much more. This is a guide for places to stay and eat, sights, activities, festivals - written by a lifelong resident of the Canadian Rockies. A review of the complete Canadian Rockies Adventure Guide from which this is drawn: Having been to the Canadian Rockies numerous times and thinking we had seen all the wonderful places before we discovered this book, we now must plan many more trips there to explore all the other incredible places described in detail in this Guide. With numerous beautiful color photographs, most of which are by the author, this guide is a treasure because the scenery of the Canadian Rockies is some of the most spectacular in the world. A unique feature of this guide book is that it includes hiking details for each of the areas described. Since we have hiked many of these areas, we know this is a necessary and valuable tool for planning hikes. With each section Koller has Hikes, Drives, Sights, and Activities, so for non-hikers it is just as valuable, also giving information for booking guided tours. The Canadian Rockies have so many wonderful places to discover and some are quite hidden unless you know where to look, as you will with this guide. Everything from camping to exclusive hotels and restaurants are catalogued also. -- Bonnie Neely (Amazon reviewer)"

A Serene Mountain Enclave After four years of working in downtown Vancouver office towers and living in a 480 sq. ft. apartment amid the city's West End, one of the most densely populated urban areas on the planet, we decamped to the hinterland. Vancouver is a gorgeous, stimulating city—a yeasty brew with an international flavour that we savoured gratefully and left reluctantly. But we yearned for wilderness. Seeing the North Shore Mountains across English Bay wasn't enough. We wanted to live in the mountains. The remote east shore of Kootenay Lake, wedged between the Selkirk and Purcell ranges, seemed as far into the wilds as we could go and still run a publishing company. So we bought a cabin on the lakeshore, chased out the packrats, stuffed our book inventory into the tiny basement, and settled in. The West Kootenay is a serene mountain enclave. Lightly populated by quirky peaceniks who relish their seclusion. Punctuated by just enough glacier-crowned summits to tantalize a peak freak. It was everything we sought. Just one thing was missing: a hiking guidebook. The only one ever written on the area was out of print long before we arrived. Asking locals for trail information led us to mountaineers who bushwhack like baboons and climb like lizards. With labour-toughened hands, they unfurled worn, weathered maps and pointed out the feral, vertical, trail-less terrain where they'd scrambled, tumbled, thrashed and roamed. It was inspiring, yet disappointing because it left us wondering, where are all the trails? During five years of living in and exploring the West Kootenay, we boot-tested more than 100 answers to that question, many of them repeatedly. The very best of those answers are illuminated in the book you now hold in your hands. It's the resource we needed when we moved here.Why isn't this an encyclopedically exhaustive volume? Because detailing every wretched, obscure scratch in the dirt would overburden and confuse the vast majority of hikers, therefore failing to guide them. By definition, a guidebook should winnow and recommend, sparing the reader unnecessary, tedious decision-making. It should also be eloquent. Guidebooks have languished too long as a knuckle-dragging subspecies of literature. So our goal was to write a superior primer—accurate of course, but also lucid, as well as entertaining—that most local or visiting hikers will find helpful and enjoyable.What's not in this book? Punishing, dreary, sketchy trips, mostly. Their appeal is limited to inveterate explorers and intrepid mountaineers. The average hiker would find these journeys frustrating, disappointing, or overwhelming. So now you can quickly, easily choose a West Kootenay hike, confident that each one in this book offers a transcendent experience. Our opinionated descriptions will help you decide where to go and understand why you're going. Our precise By Vehicle and On Foot directions will ensure you get there and back without difficulty.We hope Where Locals Hike compels you to head outdoors more often and stay out longer. Do it to cultivate your wild self. It will give you perspective. Do it because the backcountry teaches simplicity and self-reliance, qualities that make life more fulfilling. Do it to remind yourself why wilderness needs and deserves your protection. A deeper conservation ethic develops naturally in the mountains. And do it to escape the cacophony that muffles the quiet, pure voice within.
