The BC Day Long Weekend offers a good chance to do a lot of hiking trails that are at higher elevations, such as the Lions, Wedgemount, and more, but make sure to take the proper precautions.
There comes a time when a hiker needs and even craves variety. If you are willing to go a little further afield, there are hiking gems scattered throughout the immense region of Southwestern B.C. Unfortunately, for every great hike there are innumerable lackluster, or simply bad hikes. A bad hike is especially disappointing when you have to drive a great distance to reach it. The hikes described here make the drive worthwhile almost every time.
