Your Dog's Favorite Hikes In British Columbia

Submitted by Garry Favourites:
Whiffen Spit, Sooke B.C. 45 minutes from Victoria Off leash beach 2.5 km natural breakwater with a lighthouse at the entrance to the harbour. Doggie bags and trash cans. A cornucopia of dog sicks. Great dog swimming on harbour side. A great west coast storm walk in the winter, but beware waves!
Least favourite:
Osoyoos, B.C. is the most unfriendly dog town I've come across. In the winter (when there's no tourists), dogs are allowed off leash on the city beaches, to chase the ducks and geese away, reducing the fecal coliform count for the summer tourist season. In the summer, however, at 40 deg C, the only place a dog is allowed into the lake off-leash, is the boat ramp, with it's oil slick. Perhaps a small dog friendly beach so the family pet could have a much appreciated dip, or in my case, get out of the truck for a cool down. I now plan ahead to avoid this poor imitation of "somewhere in Arizona". Sunshine it has, character and charm, it has not......

Submitted by Autumn and her Humans:
Autumn's favourite hike is the Eva Lake Trail in Mt. Revelstoke National Park. Being a National Park there are leash requirements, but this in no way interferes with the fun she has. Eva Lake is an alpine lake that has some fish in it and lots of room for her to run. There is overnight tent pads and a small sign-in cabin. Lots of sticks along the way and marmots to tease her. Easy hiking trail and wonderful views. Autumn also has another favourite hike that she just got back from about an hour ago, we celebrated the coming of the New Year with a daytime hike into Begbie Falls just outside of the city of Revelstoke. There is a road going into the falls that is not ploughed all the way but snowmobilers and other hikers have packed down a trail and is an easy hike to go to the base of the falls and then to continue on to the river for fabulous views of the valley and the ski hill. Revelstoke is a dog friendly city with walkways that provide doggy pick up bags and strategically placed garbage cans. There is also an off leash area near Bridge Creek. It has lots of room to romp and play and gravel roadways to walk on. Autumn gives it her high five, paws up recommendation. Thank-you

Submitted by Morag and her guardian-
It may be small compared to other parks in BC, but Pacific Spirit Park, near UBC, provides me with welcome break from the busy city parks. There are some restrictions (either leashes are required or no dogs allowed) but these are all well marked so my guardian knows where I can and can't go. The dogs we meet are nice, friendly and very eager to sniff and play with me. The humans we meet are also nice.
