Floe Lake, Kootenay National Park (David Gluns photo)
There are hundreds of hiking trails in British Columbia, and they are located in spectacular natural settings.
After all, BC has more than 850 parks and protected areas along with year-round resorts. Every type of excursion is available, from short walks on well-marked nature trails to thigh-burning multi-day wilderness backpacking trips.
The best-known trail in British Columbia is the internationally acclaimed West Coast Trail on southern Vancouver Island. Hikers come from all over the world for this challenging 75km/47mi coastal route, known for both its beauty and physically demanding nature.
Soft sandy beaches, rainforests, and the sound of the Pacific Ocean await hikers along the Vancouver Island coast. Tide pools burst with marine life at Botanical Beach along the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail, while the remote broad sandy beaches of Northern BC's Naikoon Provincial Park stretch for approximately 100km/60mi. The Sunshine Coast Trail provides hikers with ocean views and the cool environment of old-growth forest.
See vivid red, yellow, orange-tinted volcanic mountains from the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast's aptly-named Rainbow Range trail. Towering grey cliff walls are found along the Rockwall Trail (in Kootenay National Park), and craggy pointed peaks dusted with snow greet visitors to Mount Robson's Berg Lake Trail.
The cities of Vancouver, Victoria and Whistler have quick access to quiet forests and great hiking and walking trails. Try the easy Galloping Goose Trail from Victoria, the myriad trails in Cypress Provincial Park near Vancouver, or the scenic Lost Lake Trail in Whistler.
