Canadian Rockies Hiking Books
Canadian Rockies Trail Guide NEW EDITION FOR 2022 →
Are you looking for Canadian Rockies hiking books? Over 50 years ago, the first edition of the Canadian Rockies Trail Guide was written by Brian Patton and Bart Robinson, allowing casual hikers and experienced backcountry enthusiasts alike access to information on hiking trails of the Canadian Rockies. It became the “bible” of Canadian Rockies hiking books and the all-time best-selling title for the activity.
Now in its 10th edition and in full colour, and covering over 3,400 kilometres of hiking trails, the Canadian Rockies Trail Guide remains a bestseller.
First published in 1971, the Canadian Rockies Trail Guide by Brian Patton and Bart Robinson is fully revised for 2022 and is now in full colour. Known affectionately by locals as the “Bible,” we’ve taken a deep dive looking back on the history of the book and the two authors behind its success on this page.
Veteran backpacker Gavin Fitch details a 5-day trip into the Dolomite Valley—one of Banff National Park’s most scenic destinations.
