If you're like me and:

  • love hiking/walking/associated activities
  • don't have a car
  • enjoy going outside with others, if even for a few hours
  • want to complete a classic vancouver trail

...this is a good trip for you!

Basically I have been meaning to hike the Baden Powell from Deep Cove to Lynn Valley for a while and haven't done it yet. 

To my knowledge it is a pretty easy and transit-accessible hike so if you don't have a vehicle, don't fret! Should probably take around 4-5 hours to complete. This trip is definitely beginner-friendly :)

I would like to start decently early though to avoid any crowds, especially if it is a nice day but that can all be arranged via email faff.
