Vancouver Hiking Trails RatingBurnaby Mountain, just 30 minutes east of downtown Vancouver has a nice network of popular trails with fantastic views of Vancouver, Burrard Inlet and beyond.  The trails link to the wonderful Trans Canada Trail.  The trails are all fairly easy and well laid out. All combined the trails probably add up to less than 10k, so expect to wander around for 1-3 hours.

Burnaby Mountain is located at Simon Fraser University high above, and overlooking Burrard Inlet.  The views north are of Vancouver making it a popular location to view the Celebration of Light fireworks festival on English Bay.

Horizons Restaurant located on Burnaby Mountain also has this amazing view of Vancouver as well as Indian Arm to the north.

Recent years have accumulated several mountain biking trails, making the mountain very popular with local riders. The stunning totem poles and amazing rose garden are from Burnaby's sister city, Kushiro, Japan.
