Fall in love with Squamish on foot. Travel along one of the many trails to winding rivers, glacial lakes, ancient rainforests and vast mountainous terrain.

Hiking is a great equalizer. It’s accessible to anyone with a good pair of shoes and is simple living at its finest. With 8 provincial parks and wilderness at our doorstep, Squamish has a whole host of hiking trails to choose from. Take a walk through the Smoke Bluffs and marvel at the rock climbers dangling from their ropes. Enjoy watching the kiteboarders on a sunny afternoon from the oceanfront trail. Or hike through some of the dual-purpose trails and see what mountain bikers talk about when they refer to 'epic singletrack'.

The more adventurous hikers can head into the Squamish Valley or up to the alpine for a multi-day backpacking exploration of the terrain around Elfin Lakes in Garibaldi Provincial Park.

Whatever the weather or the day holds, Squamish has some truly spectacular hikes for all levels and abilities.  Come and join us for a walk in the woods.
