Default "Must do" list of trips near Vancouver



Hi, Just found this site, it's great. Anyways, I am looking for a list of "must do" overnight backpacking trips. Criteria is within a 2.5 hour drive of Vancouver, overnight (ie. weekend - 2 days hiking).

Thanks<img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>

I already did see that. But most of the backpacking trips are multiple days. I am looking for OVERNIGHT trips.

Really you can make almost any hike an overnighter and I think most people just combine a couple hikes or take a dayhike and camp at the destination point when coming upp with overnight hikes. However, there is a book called "Gotta Hike BC" which includes alot of overnight/multi-day hikes in southern BC that may be of interest to you.

I agree, any hike can be made an overnighter. Most of my trips by far are just overnighters and I only do 3 or 4 multi-day trips year. One of my rules is "that if it takes more than two hours to drive to the TH, I'm spending the night".

One of my all time favorite overnighter's is Joffre Lakes. I love camping by the Upper Lake.

See you on the mountain!

Overnighters all ... but so wonderful, you will want to stay longer (only problem is their popularity):

Joffre Lakes

Garibaldi Park:
Wedgemount Lake
Russet Lake
Garibaldi Lake
Elfin Lakes

Manning Park:
Buckhorn/Kicking Horse camps
Frosty Camp
Skyline Trail

The Cerise creek side is not as busy as the Joffre side.
