5km hike near Hope. Challenging route (up to 3 hours to complete). This trail is great for hiking, and it's unlikely you'll encounter many other people while exploring. The best times to visit this trail are April through October. Can be steep in some areas, best to have spikes with you to help with the descent.

Intermediate to difficult hike, with STUNNING views, around 3-4 hours to do the ~8km roundtrip. Very steep climb for the first 2km then gradual slopes. Have the proper footwear. The hike to Tunnel Bluffs climbs steeply from Lions Bay before briefly following the Mount Brunswick Trail and branching off and following an old logging road to the viewpoint. On a sunny day, the incredible view looks out towards Bowen Island and the Sunshine Coast as well as south to Horseshoe Bay and along the Sea To Sky Highway.

Great hike in North Vancouver, though mostly a climb the whole way to the top. Very popular and route can be a bit narrow, so tends to be very busy during the summer since it's easily assessible for those in Deep Cove. Worth a visit if you check out Deep Cove for the day!

Easy 2 hour trail (up to ~6km), but could be much shorter as there are multiple trails that branch around the park. Lighthouse Park is one of Greater Vancouver's most beautiful parks located along the shores of West Vancouver. The park boasts some of the largest Douglas Fir trees in Greater Vancouver as well as breathtaking views of the water. There are a variety of trails through the park that take you past old growth Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir trees. The trails are all fairly easy with only a few having a short hill to ascend or descend. Take a look at the park map at the trailhead and plan your route so that you do a circle through the park and end at the lighthouse.
