Do you like hiking and enjoy the nature? The summer is coming and that’s something amazing to do while enjoying the great weather and of course get amazing views of likes, forest and even the city.
Vancouver and British Columbia are full of beautiful hikes and trails that will make you connect with the nature, the best part is that you don’t need to be an expert because you can walk in your own pace.
So let’s talk about some of the best hikes you can do bu yourself or with your friends.
This hike is in North Vancouver and it’s an easy one, the views are amazing since you can get to see Vancouver Island from there. It will take you an hour and a half aprox. to do it.
This is a very famous hike on Grouse Mountain, North Vancouver, since this hike goes all the way up to the mountain is a hard one, because you can’t get down walking, you need to reach the top to get back in the gondola, but after 2.9 km walking you will have amazing views of the city.
This trail is a very beautiful and loved hike because it has beautiful views form different places like the Indian Arm, Golden Ears Peak and Mount Baker. This trail is 9 k.m. long and it’s a moderate to hard trail in the Mount Seymour, North Vancouver.
Located in Burnaby this hike has many trails, but to get to the viewpoint on the top of the mountain this is a moderate hike that you can finish in around 45 minutes, it does have lots of stairs so you have to get ready for that, but the view is worth it.
Minnekhada Regional Park:
This is an easy trail located in Coquitlam that you can finish in 2 hours and a half aprox. And it’s 10 km long. It is a very peaceful trail with a beautiful view of a lake in the middle and incredible trees around.
This is one of my favourite trails in Port Moody , it is only 3.2 k.m. long and the best part is that you can swim in the lake, since it has a beach called “White Pine Beach”, the water is even a bit warm so it’s perfect for relaxing after the trail and don’t forget to bring some snacks.
This are just some of many hikes around Vancouver where you can enjoy the nature and amazing views, so don’t forget to check them out this summer.
