    “Great resource. Hikes and backcountry routes in western NL are amazing with no crowds. Lots of description and great photos.”

    “Easy to read, accurate, maps are easy to view. I love how each trail has it’s own page with a easy to read map, rating, footnotes, description and a few pictures. Also included-basic hiking information, weather considerations, moose behaviour and provincial websites to plan your adventures. There is so much more-so get a copy and start planning now.”

    “I’ve had the pleasure of using this guidebook on multiple trips over the past year. It’s a must have guide for anyone living or visiting in NL’s West Coast or Central (the book has entries as far East as Gander/Twillingate). Good diversity of hikes, from short boardwalks to backcountry overnight adventures.”
