UBC can brag with miles of beautiful trails that you can bike, walk, jog, all the way down to Spanish Banks and the ocean.

This is a stunning park, acres and acres surrounding the UBC capus. There are many paths you can follow and experience thee rain forest (although the trees are much larger in Stanley Park). It is an amazing place to spend an afternoon hiking or biking but there are NO facilities (food or washrooms) so make sure you've taken care of... More

After seeing places like these, all you can do is stand in awe of mother nature. This is a beautiful park in Vancouver. I don't think pictures do justice to the beauty of this place. Oh how much I would give to be a UBC student!

This is a great park to take a walk with your kids or dogs, or even bike through. You're literally surrounded by gigantic trees-you'll love it if you like taking walks through a forest!

Beautiful wooded trails allow one to escape the bustle of the city, just across the street from residential neighbourhoods. There are numerous trails to choose from, with endless variety and no chance of boredom. Gorgeous old growth forests take your breath away. A true and unique Vancouver gem.

We've visited Pacific Spirit Regional Park on bicycle during two of our three visits to Vancouver in the past 17 years. The park is magnificent. Riding the entire Seaside route from Canada Place to UBC (around Stanley Park on the seawall, around False Creek, along English Bay), through Pacific Spirit Regional Park, and back to downtown along Vancouver's excellent bikeways...

Driving from Vancouver to the University of British Columbia, you have to drive thru this amazing green belt that separates the city from the university campus. Tall trees, people picking berries on the roadside are all part of this interesting place. Joggers, cyclists all enjoy this cool quiet buffer away from the hustle of Vancouver. Amazingly its only a few... More

It's a short, steep walk down to the beach from the UBC campus, and the hike back up the steps can be rather intense, but the views across the bay are well worth it. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of sand - more a mix of stones and logs. This is also a clothing-optional beach, so that's something to... More

Beautiful selection of trails through the endowment lands near UBC. Bring your binoculars if you are a birdwatcher. Always something new and exciting to spot. The trails are well maintained and beautiful to walk, jog or cycle through.

Beautifully maintained trails in the Forest. Bathrooms at some of the entrances. Maps sporadic throughout recommend taking a picture of the main trail map at the trail entry before embarking because it is easy to lose your sense of direction when deep inside. Mostly flat with the odd good hill. Dogs are permitted, some trails are leash optional. Very peaceful... More
