  Whitehorse & Area Hikes & Bikes: “…this slim volume is exactly what an outdoor guidebook should be: well written and organized; full of clear…maps and drawings; comprehensively indexed; and fun to read.” —Quill & Quire

As one of the last great tracts of wilderness in the world, the Yukon is a hiker’s paradise. From the capital city of Whitehorse, the boreal forest extends hundreds of kilometres in all directions—interspersed with rocky mountains, alpine meadows, clear lakes and serpentine rivers. It is this unparalleled wilderness that draws most visitors and residents to the North, yet, with so many exploring possibilities, deciding where to go can be overwhelming.

Since it was first published in 1995, Whitehorse & Area Hikes & Bikes has been the definitive guide to hiking and mountain biking trails in the Whitehorse area. It contains comprehensive information on everything from easy walks along the Yukon River to alpine mountain biking adventures. Now completely revised with updated trail information, maps and photos, this new edition of Hikes & Bikes will continue to appeal to Sunday strollers and hardcore hikers alike.

This new edition of Whitehorse & Area Hikes & Bikes contains:
• Descriptions of 32 trails, including ten new trails. • GPS coordinates for each hike described in the book. • Dramatic photographs and detailed maps. • Stewardship tips for hiking in wilderness areas. • 25 pages of supplementary material on such topics as local ecology, weather and wilderness ethics and safety.

Whitehorse & Area Hikes & Bikes was produced by the Yukon Conservation Society to help more people enjoy the environment of the Whitehorse area. Proceeds from the sale of the book will go towards conservation education in the Yukon.
