Queen Elizabeth Park’s hiking trails

This was one of Vancouver’s best city locations for a hike. Not only were there plenty of trails away from traffic, but many were up hill.

The park’s arboretum made excellent cover from the midday sun with more than 1 500 trees planted. Originally, it was intended to plant every Canadian species, but the planners hadn’t considered that northern varieties wouldn’t survive in Vancouver’s milder climate.
