Wilderness on the Doorstep: Vancouver's Mountain Playground

North Vancouver Museum and Archives

Vancouver's mountains, the city's most prominent feature, are a natural playground. Since the late 19th century, day-trippers, hikers, climbers and skiers have been exploring the forested slopes and snow-capped summits of the Grouse and Seymour peaks, while anglers try their luck in the rivers of the Capilano, Seymour and Lynn valleys.
