About your host

I'm a true born and bred Vancouverite! I've been hiking and exploring the mountains and trails of the coastal region since I was a wee one and I'm happiest when I'm immersed in nature- rain or shine. I'm an avid traveler, artist and professional baker as well so when you come on an adventure with me you'll be well fed snack wise! I'm forever curious and always wanting to see what's around the…

What we’ll do

Learn about West Vancouver's forestry history on this 3.5 hour hike (5 km loop) through second growth forest, babbling brooks and a majestic Douglas Fir that was spared being cut down simply because it was the wrong kind of tree.

What else you should know

Be prepared to get a little sweaty. We gain 300 metres of elevation but there's a lot of ambling as well so with decent shoes and lots of breaks, most people won't find this hike overly strenuous.

What I’ll provide

Snacks
A mix of home made and store bought snacks. *I can accommodate GF or vegan, just let me know
Drinks
Water
Transportation
Transportation to and from the hike. Pick up and drop off.
Equipment
Rain poncho

What to bring

Good walking/running/trail/hiking shoes. No sandals or flip flops.
Water Bottle (Bring it empty, I'll fill it!)
If it's raining you'll want to bring a rain coat, rain pants (if you have them) Poncho will provided to those who don't have a rain coat.
Baseball cap is great whether is sunny or rainy!
Wear clothing that you can layer. Try to avoid cotton. Micro fleece, synthetics and moisture wicking fabrics are best for the conditions.
Camera/Smartphone, binoculars if you have them.
Sunglasses
