Story:
Pacific Spirit Regional Park is located within the University of British Columbia Endowment Lands. Within the park are many, many trails and this is the only park in Vancouver that I was definitely lost in! 

Pros:
  • This park is easy to access from downtown Vancouver. A relatively short bus ride away made it a simple place to find. 
  • The trees here are magnificent! 

Cons:
  • None of the trailheads I encountered had a map. And though I'd printed one out, I missed a turn and got lost very quickly. It would have been nice to have more maps available to hikers.

The elevation:















The trails here are relatively flat.. which on the last day of my Vancouver trip was welcomed!

The path I took:

























  • I started at 16th & Discovery Street. 
  • I entered the trail system on the Huckleberry Trail
  • I took a left to follow the Top Trail
  • I crossed Imperial Road and continued on the Top Trail until I reached its end (approx 1 mile)
  • There is a trail to the left at that point (not shown on the map above) that points one to the Camuson Bog trail and parking area. (.2 miles)
  • I completed the Camuson Bog self guided loop. You can read more about the Camuson Bog and the restoration project online. (the loop is .25 miles)
  • I continued along the trail and encountered 2 deadends and eventually decided to walk back along Imperial Road to reconnect with the Top Trail (I walked approx .75 miles)
  • I then retraced my steps along the Top and Huckleberry Trails to where I started. (approx .5 miles)




Tips:
Getting there:
From downtown Vancouver, take the B-Line #98 bus to King Edward Street and transfer to the #25 bus heading westbound. This bus will continue along King Edward, turning right onto Dunbar, and then left onto 16th Avenue. Shortly after turning onto 16th Avenue, watch for a park on your left and get off the bus at one of the nearby stops.
