When Tania Millen began doing horse pack trips in western Canada, she had trouble deciding where to go - not because there were so many options, but because information was so hard to come by. Riding the trails was the only way she could gain information about particular routes, and she is now sharing her knowledge with readers and riders. Millen provides information on fourteen multiday horse pack trips that will take experienced backcountry riders, inspired novice riders and avid hikers from the snow-capped mountains and flower-strewn meadows of the Chilcotin to volcanic landforms in Tweedsmuir Park and on the Spatsizi Plateau, from the familiar sights of Banff and Jasper National Parks to the less familiar Rocky Mountain parks of Kakwa and Mount Assiniboine. In this unique and well-researched guidebook, Millen includes all the details necessary to plan a successful trip: directions to the trailhead, length and difficulty of each journey, permit requirements, camping and grazing areas, trip description, maps and photographs, plus historical anecdotes for these distinctive and stunningly beautiful areas in Western Canada's wilderness. Trip list: · Big Creek and South Chilcotin · Itcha-Ilgachuz · Kakwa · Mount Assiniboine · Potato Range · Snowy Protected Area and Cathedral Provincial Park · Spatsizi · Tweedsmuir South Provincial Park · Banff National Park · Jasper National Park · Willmore Wilderness Park
