Hoofing the North Shore

In mountain- and tidewater-swaddled Vancouver, semi-wild escapes are never hard to come by. A jewel in the metro area's hiking crown is the Baden-Powell Trail, a 22.3-kilometer (14-mile) footpath spanning the North Shore between Horseshoe Bay on the west and Deep Cove on the east. Stitching together North Shore communities, tumbling creeks, and quiet mountain backwoods, the trail's a beautiful introduction to what makes B.C.'s biggest city so special.

Highlights of the Baden-Powell include the Deep Cove vista from Quarry Rock, the suspension bridge over Lynn Canyon, and the old-growth groves of Hollyburn Ridge. Get that out-of-town feeling without fully leaving the city: Yank on those hiking boots and hit the trail!
