Now in its third edition, and with new material on Tatshenshini Provincial Park, The Kluane National Park Hiking Guide remains the backpacker’s official source on the hundreds of kilometres of trails and routes along the edge of the St. Elias range.

Challenging terrain, pristine mountain lakes, rare plant species, grizzlies galore – Kluane has it all. Vivien Lougheed has extensively revised and updated trail listings, and rundowns on nearby amenities to bring backpackers the most current information on the park. Maps and detailed route descriptions for dozens of hiking trails range from day trips to take with the kids, to longer excursions that will challenge the most avid trekker. She includes no–nonsense safety tips for first–timers and plenty of insider information gleaned from long–term research and observation.

Kluane National Park, along with Tatshenshini, Wrangell, St. Elias and Glacier Bay, make up the world’s largest non–polar ice field and the biggest UNESCO preserve on the planet. This hiking guide is the indispensable companion for any visit to the world’s most spectacular hiking terrain.
