Whether exploring as part of a guided hiking tour or as an independent hiker, Vancouver's provincial, regional and municipal parks offer a range of well-marked trails catering to all levels of ability.
There are countless walking and hiking opportunities and trails within the city, or close by. Presiding over Vancouver, the North Shore Mountains are the southernmost grouping of the 1,600km/994mi Coast Mountain Range.
Locals and visitors alike flock to the North Shore's Grouse Grind trail. Just 25 minutes from downtown Vancouver, this continuous uphill battle is often referred to as "Mother Nature's Stairmaster" and serves as the benchmark of physical fitness for many Vancouverites.
Also in the North Shore Mountains, Cypress Provincial Park in West Vancouver and Mount Seymour Provincial Park in North Vancouver offer challenging day hikes, many with stunning views of the city and the Pacific Ocean. Having a vehicle is the easiest way to reach these parks.
