Bear Mountain Loop – Mission

Bear Mountain Loop – Mission

Bear Mountain is an area just North of Mission, BC (Canada) which is mainly used by mountain bikers. However if you don’t mind stepping out of the way when cyclists zoom past, this area is also pretty fun for hikers. The loop we found was varied with pretty woodland and fantastic views. However there are so many trails, you could easily create your own route to explore. The mountain is 543m high, so it is snow-free much earlier than other…

I must…

Cool Creek Canyon – Pemberton Hikes

Cool Creek Canyon – Pemberton Hikes

The Cool Creek Canyon trail was *such* a lovely surprise! It doesn’t seem very popular, despite being listed in Stephen Hui’s fantastic 105 Hikes in and around Southwestern British Columbia book. Or maybe it was just that no-one else is silly enough to start a second hike at 4pm in October!? Anyway, this is a super-speedy, fun walk up a waterfall-filled canyon, with gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains and glowing autumn leaves. The walk is only 2km, one there,…
