The snow is melting (sort of) and hiking season is pretty much upon us! It's time to ditch those snowshoes for hiking boots and get ready because some of your favourite trails are open for the season.

Some BC favourites like Joffre and the Grouse Grind may not be ready yet, but others like The Chief and Quarry Rock are! Spring is coming and we can't wait to get on the hiking grind again.

Please note: Be super careful of potentially icy and snowy trails and conditions. Be cautious, do your research and prepare properly before embarking on your BC spring hiking adventure. Be nice to the environment, clean up after yourselves and try to stay on designated trails for safety.
