Easy Overnight Hikes for 11 year old in Lower Mainland
Brand new here, just getting back into hiking after about 15 years and this time I'm bringing my son.
We live in the Lower Mainland and are willing to drive wherever.
He's grown up car camping but wants to start hiking with Dad. We used to use tents but we've turned into avid Hammock Campers over the last year so a Hammock friendly area (Trees / rocks close enough to hang from) would be ideal as our tent is not backpack friendly. Gave away my old two person MEC Tarn 2 tent years ago.
I'm not worried about how busy the place is, I want a good hike that's somewhere around 2-5 hours each way for his first trip just to see how he does with the pack, etc. I want his first trip to be enjoyable so that he'll want to do it again so some nice views would be good as well.
Right now he has his heart set on Black Tusk, but I've never done this hike and from what I've read may not be the best first trip for my son.
So please, if you have any ideas we'd love to hear them.
If possible list the time it takes to do the hike. If you have any pictures I could show him that would be nice as well.
