The popularity of hiking in West Vancouver and neighbouring North Vancouver helps makes this one of Canada's fittest communities.
There are few better ways to exercise the heart and lungs than hiking the dynamic, mountainous terrain of the North Shore, from shadowy forests to bubbling streams.
The trails are incredibly accessible: even for those coming from downtown Vancouver, it's only a 20-minute drive.
The Grouse Grind
The Grouse Grind is arguably the North Shore's most famous and challenging hike, winding a steep 2.9km/1.8mi up the side of Grouse Mountain. Open from late spring to early autumn, the Grind attracts more than 100,000 hikers every year.
