Pacific Spirit Regional Park

On the western edge of Vancouver, right up against the University of British Columbia, Pacific Spirit Regional Park is a hiker’s paradise. There’s over 54 kilometres (34 miles) of walking/hiking trails, with a mix of forested and shoreline trails. There are over 750 hectares (1,850 acres) of forest in the park, and an easy loop trail will allow you to take a three hour hike through much of it. There are many smaller trails for those looking for a shorter hike.

Not only does the park feature the clothing-optional Wreck Beach on the western edge, but 38 kilometres (24 miles) of the park’s trails are designated multi-use and available for cycling and horseback riding, making the park great for almost any outdoor activity.
