Lynn Canyon Park – Vancouver’s Sea to Sky trail

Lynn Canyon Park – Vancouver’s Sea to Sky trail

If you fancy a pleasant, easy hike, without too much elevation gain, then Lynn Canyon Park is a really good area to aim for! We found this walk in the new 105 Hikes In and Around Southwestern British Columbia by Stephen Hui.

The section of the walk near the suspension…

We couldn’t resist a trail that combines good mountain…

It’s not the easiest walk (click here for lots of easy options) but it…

Boundary Bay Regional Park & Bald Eagles

Boundary Bay Regional Park & Bald Eagles

You can meet so many birds of prey in Boundary Bay! Marc and I were keen to go out for a walk, but we didn’t have any micro-spikes. I looked up some hikes at low elevation, so we didn’t need to worry about ice. My search found several fun (and easy) hikes in the Tsawwassen / Delta region, south of Vancouver. We started off by driving an Evo (car share) down to Boundary Bay Regional park. I had heard that…
