Year-round hikes to help you stay in shape & get your hiking fix:
~Brae Island...a nice flat well groomed 4 km trail walk in Fort Langley that follows The Fraser River. Add Fort to Fort to make it longer.
~Burnaby Lake...a nice spongy flat 10 km trail walk that circles the lake crossing a few bridges. There are also a few other trails around to make it shorter or longer.
~Campbell Valley...several short and longer trail walks to choose from. Some with rolling hills.
~Green Timbers...a nice quick trail walk get-a-way right in the city. There are many flat walks you and your best furry buddy can choose from.
~Tynehead...one if my favorite trail walks. Choose the perimeter loop 5 km walk/run/jog that is wide with a few hills or step into the trails that crosses over bridges and has rolling hills ending in a dog park.
~Houston Trail...feels like you are a real 4 km hike. I like to do it twice. It has one nasty butt kicking & thigh burning hill at the end as you loop around.
~Sunny side Urban Forest... A beautiful trail walk that loops around. It is flat and you can do it twice to get a good walk in or add in other trails.
~Quarry Rock...a great hike 4 km without a far drive that takes you up to a beautiful rocky outcrop with an amazing view of Indian Arm & Deep Cove.
~Sasamat Lake...an up to 8 km loop around the lake and over a floating bridge. Add the side trails in to make it this long or just circle the lake for 3.2 km. there are some hills if you go up the side trails.
~Jug Island...a 5.5 km hike that has a few steep sections, stairs and takes you onto a small beach and back to the parking lot.
~Bunzten Lake...Lake View trail walks in the forest and along the river for 5.2 km...there are some hills to keep you fit for the up-coming hiking season.
Just because there is snow on the mountains doesn't mean you can't get out.
Did you ever think of snow shoeing? It's super fun! Check out my safe, snow shoeing trails that are free. It's a way to get up to the mountains and this offers a great workout! I also have safety tips when traveling in the snow.
As always happy & safe trails! Lori Pederson aka Scaredy Cat
