Family Walks and Hikes is an exciting series of books written specifically for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and abilities. These accurate, attractive guides feature expertly curated routes, informative maps, and colour photographs.

Andrew Nugara’s second book for families looking to experience the splendour of the Canadian Rockies describes additional trips in Bragg Creek, Banff, and Kananaskis that were not included in Volume 1 due to redevelopment of these hiking hotspots since the dramatic Alberta floods of 2013. As well, Volume 2 includes several new areas for family exploration, including Moraine Lake, Yoho, the north section of Highway 93 North, and Jasper. Some of the comfortable walks and spectacular hikes in this new volume are:

  • Forgetmenot Ponds
  • Nihahi Ridge
  • King Creek Canyon
  • Canadian Everest Trail
  • Picklejar Lakes
  • Yamnuska
  • Ha Ling Peak
  • Sunshine Meadows
  • Paget Peak Lookout
  • Takakkaw Falls
  • Parker Ridge
  • Athabasca Glacier
  • Sunwapta Falls
  • Maligne Canyon


Ranging from charmingly easy to moderately challenging, all of these hikes are accessible from reliable roads and popular staging areas. In addition, each hike is accompanied by a clear, colourful map, step by step directions, and full-colour photographs. Each route includes:

  • detailed directions to trailheads
  • colour maps and photographs
  • seasonal information
  • round-trip distances
  • trail commentary
  • difficulty ratings
