September is upon Vancouver and we all know what that means — (hopefully) one last month of sunshine before the sun disappears for what will feel like for-freaking-ever. Beat those back to school or work blues with some summer hiking feels. You may have hung up your bikini but give those hiking shorts some love before the season is over for good!

BC is so beautiful in all seasons, but let's be real, the sun defs shows off our province's best side. Whether you want to make it a day trip to Whis or a short, easy hike near the city, this list has got you covered. From waterfalls to lakes to mountains, make the most of the final days of warmth before the trails get buried under snow :(
