It's Hiking Season!
Metro Vancouver officially opened the Grouse Grind on May 17 and that can only mean one thing - hiking season is here! Yes, there is still snow at elevation, but I was up at Hollyburn Ridge a few days ago and it looks pretty good for this time of year. Here are some good recent resources that will help you pick some trails to put on your 2014 wishlist:
Earlier this month I wrote a guest post for the popular local hiking website Vancouver Trails. In the post I talk about why you might consider trail running, and some tips for doing so.
"Trail running isn’t intimidating. It doesn’t mean you have to run a 100 miler, go vegan and eat chia seeds all day, and/or grow a beard (although beards are scientifically proven to make men run 14.2% faster). Trail running is simply about being out in nature, placing one foot in front of the other, and repeating for as long you feel like."
