Welcome hiking in the Vancouver area

Most Vancouver winters are six months of rain . There is a long standing joke , "What do you call two days of rain ? " The weekend ! I like to spend the month of June on the beach soaking up some much needed sun . By the end of June most of the snow on the peaks has melted ,and the sound of the " Rats with Wings " ( seagulls ) are driving me crazy Yes it's time to hit the hills and back country . Vancouver has some of the best hiking in Canada . All of it is within easy reach of the city . Here you'll find some of my favourites . I have also posted some links , pics , tips, a few maps , and some useful forms.

Rating : 1 = easy 2 = moderate 3 = hope your in shape !
View : 1 = not much 2 = worth taking a camera 3 = outstanding !

A bit About Me - I'm 48 yrs. old and single . I am 5' 11" 185lbs . I have green eyes & brown hair ( but the grey is starting to sneak in ). I started this webpage so I could share trails & trips with my fellow hikers . Some of the things I enjoy are ; hiking , photography , cooking , working out at the gym , roller blading , camping ,reading ,computers and travelling . I work for a large soft drink bottler in Vancouver . This is a fast paced enviroment so I find my time on the trails is a great way to release stress . I moved to the west coast when I was 12 and love the fact that there are still places to explore every weekend . When the rains start ( Nov.- Feb. ) it's video & popcorn time . That's where the gym comes in and " Tanya The Punishment Queen "
