Got your copy of the one and only hiking guide for Western Newfoundland?
Published in August 2014, this book was a two year, two person endeavour. It all started with a referral. My name was passed along to Boulder Publications and within days, I was speaking with the owner, Gavin Will, and being offered the contract to write a hiking guide book. Needless to say I was very excited! But I couldn't undertake this kind of project alone with the thousands of kilometres of hiking required, the short season, doing my B.Ed and working part time, I had to call in reinforcements.
Who better than a fellow outdoor guide who is also super passionate about hiking - Alex Fortin! With Alex onboard we began to plan - what trails will we include, what criteria do they need to meet, how will we divide up the areas and trails? Then it was time for hiking, hiking and more hiking! Photos were taken by the hundreds, many Write in the Rains were filled with notes, and we both needed new boots!
We spend almost a year writing, comparing notes, editing, proof reading, photo editing and going back and forth with Boulder's design team to get to what you're seeing today. We hope you find this a valuable resource for your next hike in Western Newfoundland!
This comprehensive hiking guide covers the Southwest Coast, Stephenville, Port-aux-Port Peninsula, Bay of Islands & Humber Valley, Gros Morne National Park, the Great Northern Peninsula, and Baie Vert east to Twillingate.
It includes all the details to help you prepare to hike, get you to the trailhead, colour photos of trail highlights, difficulty ratings and more!
