Shannon Falls Mountains, British Columbia

The Shannon Falls hiking trail, located 1 hour north of Vancouver, British Columbia, is amazing!

It's a straight climb to the top, so get your quadriceps ready.

There are 3 peaks, with a bonus one for fun. The paths are not always linear, and you can get lost here from peak 2-3.

The view is amazing, and you will definitely thank yourself for coming here and climbing to the top.

One of my favorite hikes of all time (so far).

Edit 2018: Although I mention this area as Shannon Falls, the actual area is located next to the town of ‘Squamish'.

Also, the rock hiking section is actually the ‘Stawamus Chief Provincial Park'.

The water from Shannon Falls is drinkable, and as pure as filtered water (I hope)
