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

Lots of paths to take and a great place to distress from your crazy workload if you're a UBC student! Also a great place for spotting bald eagles!

You take a walk in this park, and you could be walking in the middle of one of BC's rain forest; it is that peaceful and authentic. It is easily accessible from various sides and each access point allows for free parking. It is a good place to ride your bike, too. It offers numerous trails, some with short steep... More

Pacific Spirit Park is a huge inner city park with a ton of trails, and free parking all along W.16th ave. The trails are visibly marked and easy to follow, and this is a very casual recreational walk for anyone to enjoy. :)

I lived on the UBC campus for many summers and fell in love with this nearby Greater Vancouver Regional Park. Its more than 30 trails through rainforest and along the shoreline by Point Grey continue to beckon on my annual visits to the city. Within seconds of entering the forest in early morning -- my favorite time -- a hush... More

i truly enjoy the cool comfort of a walk in the park. Many of the trails here are leash optional and dog owners are fully into that around here. be prepared if you are not a dog lover. Personally just got stared down by a very large, growling doberman and that was not terribly comfortable - and i like dogs.... More

Miles of forest trails wander near the sea and a 20 minute ride from downtown Vancouver. Located on the fringe of UBC.
