Cape Scott and the North Coast Trail is the first comprehensive guidebook about one of Vancouver Island's most iconic destinations. Each year, thousands of backpackers and nature lovers head to the northern limits of Vancouver Island, bound for the jewel of the region: Cape Scott Provincial Park and the recently completed North Coast Trail.
Part trail map, part field guide, part regional history, this book equips visitors with everything they need to know to make the most of the park. Illustrated with accurate, full-page maps and vivid photographs, and loaded with details about biology and human history, the guide is perfect for the day tripper, serious backpacker or anyone wanted to learn more about the culture and wildlife of the region.
Essential trip planning information and detailed trail descriptions are at the core of the book. However, like no other account on the market today, it also explores the human history and culture of the area - from First Peoples through to colonization and conservation. A chapter on the plants and animals of the North Coast will also help hikers appreciate the incredibly rich wildlife of the area. The book also includes a lot of "extras" including suggested itineraries, UTM coordinates, and regional information for making the most of your trip.
