Best off the beaten path spots to explore the outdoors?

Taking a solo trip to Vancouver this fall and want to hit up the outdoor scene. I love nature, hiking, biking, and being active in general. What are some of the best places I can get off the beaten path and explore the outdoors?

    Check out the Baden Powell Trail, Lynn Canyon Park, Quarry Rock, Cates Park, Squamish - the Chief - an amazing hike with beautiful views!! Grouse Grind is well worth the hike if you are up for it. It is 'nature's stair climber'.

    Buntzen Lake is a really nice hike. Not too difficult, may see some wildlife. Takes about 2 hours.

    A great website with a list of trails and times - although the times do not seem super accurate - but I suppose that depends on your speed.

    Enjoy your trip :)

    Do the Grouse Grind. Very steep uphill hike in the forest I think its 2,800 steps,took me just under and hour and a half, my son 45 minutes, not really off the beaten path can be busy on the weekends. It is free to go up but you have to take the gondola down $10.00. It is at Grouse Mountain Skyride 15 minutes from downtown. You must be "inshape"

    Here are some ideas:

    Challenge yourself to the Grouse Grind (or less busy the BCMC) accessed at the base of Grouse Mountain in North Vancouver. Lynn Canyon Park also has some great hikes. Drive 35 minutes north and hike the Chief in Squamish. Explore and then take the new sea to sky gondola down. If you can afford the time, drive 40 minutes further north to Whistler - an outdoor enthusiasts paradise. Great trail riding around Lost Lake, or even downhill mountain biking on Whistler Mountain. Hope this helps!

    O man Drew you are coming to the right place!

    http://www.vancouvertrails.com/blog/vancouver-area-hiking-groups/

    There are so many places to get information online about people who are much better at answering this question but my fav places are:

    cycle the Seawall you can have the most easy beautiful few hours doing this and then hop over to Waterfront Station All Lines and get on the Seabus over to North Vancouver you can take public transit Translink (look up bus schedules) to Grouse Mountain you can do a challenging but rewarding, The Grouse Grind, and take a Grouse Mountain Skyride down if you like!

    Enjoy your time in our BEAUTIFUL CITY!!
