Living on the wet coast, we have to embrace the rain. Much of British Columbia is, after all, a coastal temperate rainforest. In fact, nearly a quarter of the world’s remaining temperate rainforest is in B.C.
While this can make the winter months dark and dreary, the rain doesn’t have to be a deterrent from getting out and enjoying hiking. In fact, a lot of Vancouver hikes are enhanced by the misty atmosphere of a dense west coast forest.
