Feature Region: Vancouver & Coast

The Vancouver and coast region of British Columbia includes:

  • Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody
  • Tsawwssen and Delta
  • Surry and Langley
  • Whistler
  • Squamish and Howe Sound
  • Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows
  • North and West Vancouver
  • Pemberton
  • Chilliwack, Mission, Abbotsford

As such a huge and highly populated area, there are plenty of trail walking and backpacking opportunities around. Many of the trails are rated as ‘easy’ but there are some more difficult ones available as well.

The easiest trail is Bridal Veil Falls in Fraser Valley East, at less than a kilometer long and approximately 20 minutes of hiking time. At the other end of the scale is the 30 kilometer, 11 hour Panorama Ridge hike in Whistler. No matter what direction you go, the stunning coastal scenery is sure to amaze.

Vancouver Trails also has an event page that is constantly updated, providing outdoor events that backpackers in the area might be interested in.  Be sure to check out one of the most popular regions in British Columbia- just make sure you pack a rain jacket!
