About Canterbury Foothills & Forests: A Walking and Tramping Guide:

This new edition of Pat Barrett’s popular guide to walking excursions in the greater Canterbury region adds Lewis Pass National Reserve and Western Arthur’s Pass National Park to the areas included in the first edition, and also covers additional areas of Te Kahui Kaupeka and Hakatere Conservation Parks that are now accessible to the public. The book has a comprehensive introduction, with advice for planning your trip, and provides some background on landscape and climate, flora and fauna, and a brief history of the Canterbury foothills. Pat’s personal accounts of some of his favourite walks and climbs will inspire even ‘armchair trampers’ to get out and enjoy the natural splendour of this magnificent region. Canterbury Foothills & Forests includes walks and tramps suitable for a range of fitness levels; families with children and the moderately fit will enjoy the many short walks along well-marked tracks, and there are harder trips for those who aspire to the challenge of a climb and the views gained from the tops of some of the higher summits.
