It’s today that we celebrate how amazing our four-legged friends really are (a little more than usual, that is)! Here are some great hidden gems to visit with your doggie before the summer of ’17 ends for good.

Deep Cove: Baden-Powell Trail



For a rugged, wilderness hike, this 41 km scenic trail stretches from the head of Burrard Inlet in Deep Cove to Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver. 

Dog Mountain 


The Dog Mountain Trail is a short, easy hike from Mount Seymour that offers a 
spectacular view of Vancouver on a clear day.

Lynn Headwaters Park


Lynn Headwaters is the largest of Vancouver’s regional parks, and there are 
many hiking trails to explore for all skill levels.

Cates Park


Cates Park is the largest waterfront park in North Vancouver. It’s ancestral name 
is Whey-ah-Wichen, which is a Tsleil-Waututh word that means “faces the wind”.

Fisherman’s Trail


Located in North Vancouver, the Fisherman’s Trail follows the Seymour River in 
the lush forests of the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve to the Mid Valley. No mountain peak, just a family- and dog- friendly trail. 

Hunter Park


Hunter Park is a nice neighborhood park trail with streams, protected areas and multiple entrances.

Ambleside Beach


Ambleside is fully accessible and well used by both West Vancouver residents and visitors. Come walk the Seawalk, visit 
the dog park, play beach volleyball, relax in the sand and more!

Bridgman Park

Whether you are a hiker, runner, cyclist, dog walker, or just like to wander and 
explore the beauty of the North Shore, there is a trail for you here.

Mahon Park


Mahon Park is one of the City’s largest and oldest parks, and has a well-
established history in both sports and its natural setting. 

King’s Mill Dog Walk Park

Kings Mill Walk Park3

Kings Mill Walk Park is a popular City wide Park and is a key connection in the 
regional, multi-use North Shore Spirit Trail.

Whyte Lake Trail


Whyte Lake is a small, peaceful lake in the hills of West Vancouver above Horseshoe Bay. The trail is scenic, following Nelson Creek uphill through a grove of Western Cedar and Douglas Fir trees and pass several large old growth giants. 


So, have fun this National Dog Day, and celebrate with a fun hike! 🙂
