Learn about West Vancouver's forestry history on this 3.5 hour hike (5 km loop) through second growth forest, babbling brooks and a majestic Douglas Fir that was spared being cut down simply because it was the wrong kind of tree. There are many stops on this hike where you can see evidence of the logging that was done in this area in the early part of the 20th century. The trailhead is at the top of the British Properties in West Vancouver and on the drive up we'll have sweeping views of the city on a clear day. The trail starts off gently through the forest, we'll pass a lively stream and stop to look at the log dam used to store shinglebolts before they were sent down to the mill. We'll pass by a granite rock left behind by glacial activity from over 12,000 years ago and if you look closely you can see remnants of logging, such as spikes, railway ties, cables and notches in stumps all along the trail. Just past the halfway point of the hike we'll get to the best part of the hike-the Hollyburn Fir. it's 3 m in diameter and a solid 44 meters in height.

I'm a true born and bred Vancouverite! I've been hiking and exploring the mountains and trails of the coastal region since I was a wee one and I'm happiest when I'm immersed in nature- rain or shine. I'm an avid traveler, artist and professional baker as well so when you come on an adventure with me you'll be well fed snack wise! I'm forever curious and always wanting to see what's around the bend... I'm excited to share some of my secret spots with you! * I can take up to 6 passengers so please contact me if you don't see an available date and I can try to accommodate.

There are 9 points of interest on this hike and I'll tell you a little about the flora, the fauna and the logging history. The thing I love about this hike is the tranquility and the quiet. It's become increasingly difficult in Vancouver to find places that are undiscovered, and this little gem is truly one of them! I've never seen more than a handful of people on this trail, which is really quite remarkable!

Be prepared to get a little sweaty. We gain 300 metres of elevation but there's a lot of ambling as well so with decent shoes and lots of breaks, most people won't find this hike overly strenuous.
