12 Scenic Spring Hikes You Must Do In B.C.

Hiking season all year round!
12 Scenic Spring Hikes You Must Do In B.C.

Hiking season never ends in B.C. but the snow definitely impedes on trail access to several hikes. But spring is upon us and the snow is melting off many of the trails. 

We cannot wait for all the trails to be accessible again, so we can finally see the beautiful blue waters of lakes like Garibaldi and Joffre once more. But until then, there are still so many stunning spring hikes that take our breath away. Don't wait until summer to get your hike on, there are so many hikes that become accessible in spring or are open all year-round. Happy adventuring! 

Please note: Since conditions may still be icy and snowy, be extra careful. As always, be cautious and prepare before hiking. Be respectful of the environment and remain on designated trails for safety purposes.
