Canterbury Foothills and Forests:
Subject: Travel, Sport/Leisure
Canterbury Foothills and Forests is a very well-researched and written guide, illustrated with numerous colour photographs and maps, that caters to the 'one day I'll do it' market as well as to the serious walker/tramper and tourists.
Pat Barrett, experienced tramper and superb photographer, has drawn together for the first time all the marked walking tracks, huts and recognised tramping routes of the foothills region, many of which have never before been documented in this form. Every route is graded (from easy to super-hard) with an estimate of the walking time involved. Other details include access information (including phone numbers for landowners where applicable), descriptions of the best route available, and notes on the attractions of the particular track/peak, the weather and terrain, and equipment you'd need to carry.
