Echo Lake (Wednesday, Saturday & Sunday, $79.00)

7-8 hrs, strenuous but relatively short and requires agility - best in good weather but fine in bad weather too

Echo Lake is a true Squamish classic. We transport you by small boat to the far side of the Squamish River where the trail takes us steeply upwards right next to a series of super scenic waterfalls. There is also a natural granite arch to see before the trail mellows as it reaches one of the most beautiful sections of rainforest in the area. After a couple of kilometres in this valley we climb alongside a last set of cascades until we reach Echo Lake for great views in all directions including back down on to Squamish, the Chief and the Squamish Valley. This is a must do adventure, suitable for those in reasonable shape and with reasonable levels of dexterity.

Pick Up From: Howe Sound Inn - 8:50am; Squamish Adventure Inn - 9:00am; Squamish Adventure Centre - 9:10am; Squamish Executive Suites - 9:20am

Mt Gardner on Bowen Island (Tuesday and Friday, $79.00)

9-10 hrs, moderate difficulty but quite long hike with travel makes for a long day - best on a sunny day

Mt Gardner is one of the most enjoyable early season hikes in the area. We take you down to Horseshoe Bay (35 mins) from where we catch the ferry to Bowen Island (20 mins). This is a great chance to experience Howe Sound form the water with incredible views of the North Shore mountains. From quaint Snug Cove we will walk to the trailhead from where the hike is short (about 2 hrs) but relatively steep on well marked trails and old logging road. Watch out for woodpecker, Stellar's Jay and other wildlife as we wend our way to the top past a couple of expansive lookouts over Howe Sound. At the top we can see as far as Vancouver and the Sunshine Coast. This is a long hike (17km) but not too strenuous overall.

Pick Up From: Howe Sound Inn - 8:15am; Squamish Adventure Inn - 8:25am; Squamish Adventure Centre - 8:35am; Squamish Executive Suites - 8:45am

High Falls Creek (Monday & Thursday afternoon, $59.00)

5-6 hrs, moderate to strenuous and requires agility - good hike for bad weather days as well as sunny

Similar in some ways to the Echo Lake hike this is a shorter version which doesn't require us to cross the river. A lovely scenic drive alongside the river and past a number of distant but impressive waterfalls takes us to the trailhead. Like Echo lake the trail is steep in parts (there are a couple of sections where you need to pull yourself up using a chain or rope) and follows a waterfall into a section of rainforest. At the top we turn on to a logging round and enjoy some wonderful views of the wilderness in the upper Squamish Valley as we return to our vehicle. 

Pick Up From: Howe Sound Inn - 2:00pm; Squamish Adventure Inn - 2:10pm; Squamish Adventure Centre - 2:20pm; Squamish Executive Suites - 2:30pm

Brohm Lake (Monday & Thursday morning, $39.00)

3-4 hrs, easy to moderate - the best hike for a rainy day but of course great in the sun too

Brohm Lake is an easy to moderate hike that takes in an excellent example of west coast rainforest as we circle the lake. Weather permitting we may also climb to a lookout from where we can see superb vistas of the incredible Tantalus Range. This is also a great hike to do in bad weather as the forest never looks better than in the rain when it becomes lush and verdant.

Pick Up From: Howe Sound Inn - 8:50am; Squamish Adventure Inn - 9:00am; Squamish Adventure Centre - 9:10am; Squamish Executive Suites - 9:20am
