Who says you have to travel far from home to go on a great hike? Best Hikes Near Vancouver details the 41 best hikes within a close proximity of the city, perfect for the urban and suburbanite hard-pressed to find great outdoor activities close to home. Each featured hike includes detailed hike specs, a brief hike description, trailhead location, directional cues, a detailed map, and color photos.
The rewards of hiking near Vancouver are plentiful: Howe Sound panoramas, island explorations to giant Doug firs, an up-close look at The Lions, feeling the spray of Shannon Falls, and spotting migratory flocks at Boundary Bay.
It is easy to select a hike you prefer by combining information in the Trail Finder (which categorizes each hike, i.e., Best Hikes for Waterfalls; Best Hikes for Families/Children) with the short Summary of the hike.
GPS points are used along with a written description to identify the location of each trailhead.
