Take a Hike With Your Children:

Your Guide to Family Hikes in the Canadian Rockies

Your Family-Focused Guide


Why I Wrote This Book

This truly unique hiking guide is the first and only one of its kind. Like many families, I struggled to find hikes that were appropriate for the whole family. Could I bring a stroller? Wear a baby carrier? Bring my 2-year-old?

Take a Hike With Your Children is the answer to all the questions I had about hiking with my young family. Discover the outdoors with your family in a way that leaves you feeling confident and in love with nature.
