Vancouver Canada Tourist Information and Travel Guide
There are very few major world cities that offer such easy access to the great outdoors. Vancouver is one of them.
The Baden Powell Trail, for example, is located just 30 minutes from the heart of Vancouver. It is a gateway to gorgeous mountain scenery and breathtaking panoramic city views.
The Sir Baden Powell Trail runs west from Deep Cove in North Vancouver. The trail ends up near Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver. It varies in altitude from sea level to about 2,500 feet and can be accessed from the Cypress Mountain ski lodge.
Hikers will be delighted by the wonderful views overlooking downtown Vancouver. Picturesque Alpine meadows can also be enjoyed at points along the Baden Powell trail.
