The book goes into details of good places to visit for scenic views, or viewing wildlife, or having a picnic. This is a good book to bring with you when you visit the Park.
What stopped me from giving this book 5-stars was that most of the information available in the book is also available on the internet. I was hoping to learn of secret trails, or places to visit that the average tourist doesn't know about. There were a couple of places I never knew existed, but not as much as I had hoped for.
The book is a good guide to take with you to the park to remind you of interesting places.
A chapter is devoted to the Highway 60 corridor and the activities along it. This is a good location to begin exploring the park for the beginners.
Besides, there is information about locations to see fall colours.
Overall, this is a good guide to keep while planning for exploring the park.
