The Road Less Traveled

by on Jul.01, 2011, under Environment, Nature, Recreation

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada offers beautiful scenery. There are panoramic mountain top views, tranquil lakes, thick west coast rain forests, beautiful waterfalls, and breath taking alpine scenery.

Hiking is the perfect way to enjoy the nature and beautiful scenery that Vancouver has to offer. There are literally hundreds of marked trails of various lengths and difficulty of terrain. If you visit the North Shore, Mt. Seymour has trails leading up to all three peaks. Hike up Old Buck from the Lower Seymour parking lot, and, go left on Baden-Powell when you reach the top. Go past Pangor, and Boogyman, and look for the Silver trail marker, marking the turnoff of the Baden-Powell.

Some of the trails are more difficult than others.
