Hiking in the forest

Hikes on the North Shore

Established in 1989, this hiking group explores the many trails of the North Shore at an intermediate pace.

Trail Trekkers hikes are free for anyone with a North Vancouver Recreation & Culture Fitness Membership. Non-members can pay a fitness membership day visit fee.

Moderate-paced, keep fit and get-fit hikes on the trails of the North Shore. Participants should have good hiking shoes/boots (NO RUNNERS), a fanny/day pack, appropriate clothing for weather conditions, a flashlight for evenings and water. No umbrellas and no dogs are permitted. Routes may be subject to change for safety reasons (dependent on weather and trail conditions). Hikes are approximately 2 hours long.

Advance registration is required for all of our hikes and walks. Registration can be done online using the links below, or by calling 604-987-7529. Registration begins at 9:00am on the Monday, one week before the hike.
