I hope everyone had a chance to enjoyed family day yesterday! This past weekend was absolutely beautiful but it was definitely chilly. All the patios on Brewer’s Row were full as if it was summer. Only in BC is it patio weather in February! I worked all weekend but I still took time to do what I love, hiking. Living in the Tri-Cities there are a ton of great hiking trails.

Here is a list of my favourites:
Buntzen Lake: If you look online it says 8km around the lake but my fitness app says 10 k and it takes just over 2 hours. For the more adventurous people out there, there is Diez Vista with breathtaking views.
White Pine Beach: Short walk around the lake and once it’s warm enough you can jump off the docks to cool off.
Shoreline Trail: Great walk around the inlet and finish it off with Rocky Point Ice Cream or a pint from one of the Breweries; Parkside, Moody Ales, Yellow Dog or Twin Sails.
Coquitlam Crunch: Get your booty in shape with about 500 steps and walk to the top along the powerlines.
Crystal Falls: The trail head is among houses at the north end of Shaughnessy and finishes at a beautiful waterfall that drains into the Coquitlam River.
Minnekhada Regional Park: Beautiful park with trails to Minnekhada and High Knoll Lookout.
Colony Farms Provincial Park: Great park for walking, running and mountain biking. Nice and flat so it is easy on the little ones.
Traboulay PoCo Trail: 25.3km trail that loops around Port Coquitlam. The trail goes along the dykes, parks, river and Downtown PoCo.
