Need Vancouver/Squamish Travel Tips!
« on: September 21, 2018, 05:35:56 PM »
So my wife and I will be in Vancouver next week. She has a conference and I'm tagging along. We'll have Sunday-Tuesday at an Airbnb in Squamish before the conference. Our plan was to find a couple hikes, hit up a farmers market for picnic materials, and have a lovely time.

Any locals or world travellers know the area well enough to suggest a couple easyish scenic hikes? We're late 20s, pretty good shape, and can handle 5-10 miles a day. We're just not too comfortable on really steep terrain. We've been googling around, but the online reviews are sporadic enough that the wife is getting nervous about how difficult the hikes really will be.

If you can do it on a weekday, might as well do the Chief. It's an iconic Squamish hike for a reason, but usually pretty packed on the weekends. It is decently steep though. What kind of hikes are you used to?
