The West Coast Trail, which traverses 50 miles of gorgeous Northwest Canadian coastline, has been dubbed the "Graveyard of the Pacific," having claimed 60 ships since 1854. Tim Leadem, who's hiked it many times, shows readers how to make the most of this demanding trail. The book contains two-color maps covering trailhead to terminus; checklists for food, clothing, and gear; easy reference charts for navigating tricky tidal areas; and a brief text describing the historical, cultural, and geological highlights along the way.

This book is a necessity if you are planning on hiking the challenging West Coast Trail as he maps out what you need, how to prepare, and what you'll face while on the hike. Pair it with Leadem's "Hiking the West Coast of Vancouver Island" for truly comprehensive coverage.
