Looking to make a day of it? Finding a new or the right trail for you can make all the difference. Get out for a run and find yourself refreshed and energised. We've done some research for you and have found some really nice trails for you to run and explore.
The largest of Vancouver’s regional parks, Lynn Headwaters has many fantastic (and challenging) running routes. The Lynn Loop is a 5.1-kilometer (3.2-mile) round-trip route that allows you to go through the forest before following the Lynn Creek back. The Varley Trail is an even easier—but just as picturesque—option, with boardwalks and stairs. On the edge of Lynn Headwaters Regional Park is the Rice Lake Trail, which is an easy three-kilometer (1.9-mile) loop.
Ambleside Park in West Vancouver has a fantastic seawalk stretching just over three kilometers (1.9 miles) west to Dundarave Park. The waterfront path has incredible views across the Burrard Inlet towards Stanley Park and the Lions Gate Bridge. The other option from Ambleside Park is the Capilano Pacific Trail, a 15-kilometer (9.3-mile) round-trip path to Cleveland Dam. The trail follows the Capilano River, which is the border between North and West Vancouver. The elevation gain is 236 meters (774 feet).
The Seawall is the world’s longest uninterrupted waterfront path. It circles the downtown peninsula and stretches towards Olympic Village in one direction, and Kitsilano Beach in the other. There are many popular routes along the Seawall, including the False Creek loop, running from the Inukshuk in Stanley Park to Yaletown, or the Stanley Park loop. It’s a flat and well-maintained trail, which is busiest in the evenings and on the weekends.
