Snacks are packed, shoes are on and it is time to finally hit the trail! but which one? Here are my top 5 hikes for beginners!
Rice lake is located within Lynn Headwaters Park. A brief walk from the parking lot with many places to sit and enjoy the nature. This is a great hike to take the kids or practice in those new hiking boots before you hit the big hills!
Cedar mills loop
I like this one as it follows through some old logging camps from 80+ years ago. There are some signs with history and if you look carefully, old relics of an industry that was once quite prominent .
This is a great hike for someone looking for something a bit longer. The trail itself is relatively flat the entire way, with great views of the Seymour river with ample river side spots for a nice picnic. A must do for any novice adventurer.
Stanley park is convenient and offers some decent hiking with short but at times steep trails that will give you enough exercise to warrant a treat afterwards. Start from the entrance and work your way to Prospect point in the summer for a nice ice cream reward!
Located near Port Moody. This is a great spot to take your dog for a day of great walking along a beautiful lake. You’ll need a car to get here as it is about an hours drive from downtown Vancouver.
