Author and BMN member Lyle Litzenberger has just published Burke & Widgeon – A Hiker’s Guide. This is the first guidebook for Burke-Pinecone Park, and describes hikes ranging from 20 minute strolls suitable for every age and fitness level, to multi-day hikes that will challenge even the most experienced hiker. This 260 page book has detailed trail descriptions including total length, overall difficulty and difficulty of each section, estimated time needed, trail conditions, and suggested places to pause and admire the views. There are 28 hikes with 66 detailed maps, 37 colour photos, and GPS coordinates.
BMN is selling Lyle’s wonderful guidebook for $22 and a signed copy can be picked up at a meeting or by contacting Ian McArthur (imcart at telus dot net).
It can also be purchased through the book’s website.
