It’s officially time to dust off those hiking shoes. There is an epic hike in B.C. that will lead you to a lush green forest that looks like it’s straight out of Ferngully. Sandy Cove in B.C. has an awe-inspiring secret beach at the end of your hike that is calling your name. You can thank us later for this tidbit of information. 

B.C. has some of the most beautiful hikes in Canada. If you happen to find yourself in the area anytime soon, we strongly recommend you hit up Sandy Cove. 

Located near Harrison Hot Springs, this trail is a short walk which is perfect if you aren’t looking for a full day activity. 

The trail itself is a 3.5-kilometre looped trail. Primarily used for walking and nature trips, it takes you to one of the most perfect lakes imaginable. 

Don’t worry if you aren’t the most skilled at hiking. This trail is labelled as moderate which means it's accessible for beginners but not a total bore for more advanced hikers. 

The scenery along the trail will make you feel like you’re in Jurassic Park as the area's totally filled with lush greenery. 

From ferns to staggering trees, you will be completely surrounded by nature. 

Once the trail opens up, you are officially at the beach. This sandy area is frequented by local swimmers, sightseers, and, of course, dogs. 

If you are going during the summer months, take some lunch and a bathing suit and spend the day. The area really makes for a great place to relax and recharge.

For the most part, the beach is a pretty secluded and a well-kept secret so don't tell anyone. 

To get to the trailhead, you can park at the Harrison Hot Springs Resort. Once there, head to the very back of the parking lot to find the 10 Bridges Trail. 

These bridges make for great scenery during your walk and as per the name, there are 10 of them. 

Be mindful of the signs and you should be fine.

You can also download a map before you go to make sure you’re heading in the right direction. 

Now that spring has sprung it’s time to start thinking about the adventures of your future.
