    This book is excellent! I don’t even have children and I keep a copy for myself as these are excellent trail recommendations for people of all ages! The writing is easy and broken down easy enough for anyone to understand. I highly recommend this to anyone who has a family that wants to explore Alberta, but also to any new hiker looking for some short and sweet trails to do in general! You can tell the author is very passionate about what she does and her expertise in her field is showcased in her writing.
