New in the city and don't have a car, but still want to explore around? I got your back, yes you landed on the right page 

Below are the hikes that can be done in a single day by using public transit, some of them involve walking to reach the final point which is a part of the journey. Especially if someone is new to this city, they can use this information to explore nearby hikes across the Lower Mainland. I have highlighted the location and key points about each trail and also showcased a gallery of the respective locations.
