Another of RMB’s bestselling hiking books, The David Thompson Highway Hiking Guide, has been completely revised, updated and redesigned for outdoor enthusiasts interested in experiencing a wide variety of easily accessible trails through stunning landscapes in west-central Alberta between the rolling foothills of the Nordegg area and the towering peaks of Banff National Park.

All of these exceptional hikes start right from the highway. You’ll find everything from leisurely two-hour walks to tougher three-day backpacking journeys. Throughout regions as diverse as the old coal-mining town of Nordegg, the Bighorn Range, the Cline River area, the Kootenay Plains and the Upper North Saskatchewan Valley, hikers of all abilities will experience some of the most inspiring scenery, glorious flora and fascinating history that Western Canada has to offer.
