Roundup of Hiking News around Vancouver

We have begun to enter the tail-end of the summer but now is the best time to get outside and go hiking. There’s been a lot of hiking-related news recently, so I thought I post a round up of all the recent articles I’ve come across. Most of the articles are hyper-local, but I also found a number of interesting articles from the US that are related to hiking and the outdoors so I included those as well.

I might make this ‘article roundup’ a regular feature of the blog:
