British Columbia’s landscape primarily consists of National Parks filled with mountain ranges, lakes, and rivers. This makes it one of the best places for hiking in North America. Some hiking trails are short, some will get your calves burning, and others will take days to complete. No matter what kind of hike you desire, British Columbia has a hiking trail to suit you.
1. Stawamus Chief
Locally known as just the Chief, this granite dome is located in Stawamus Chief Provincial Park in Squamish. It’s actually one of North America’s largest granite monoliths and towers 702 metres over the Squamish township. The Chief is described as an intermediate hike, which can take between 2 and 6 hours to finish. There are three peaks to conquer, where you can stop and admire the views over Howe Sound.
