Chapman Falls Trail

Yesterday (Jan 9, 2022) was one of those rare and spectacular Vancouver days of January Sunshine.

Janine and I took advantage of it and flew to Sechelt to go on one of our favourite hikes.

Here is one of the many splendid sights on the way is Deep Cove and Indian Arm.

The Chapman Falls trail is accessible directly from the airport in Sechelt. It’s a steep hike in places, but one of the most beautiful rain-forest trails in BC.

The sunbeams coming through the thick forest canopy added quite the sense of magic to hike.

The trail eventually culminates at Chapman Falls (about 90-minutes), but we didn’t get that far. We got as far as the Chapman Creek crossing.

After that there is a steep uphill section that was frozen and too slippery to climb.

In case there is any doubt about what a beautiful city we live in, here is an aerial of Stanley Park and Downtown Vancouver from the flight back.

And a close up of BC Place, False Creek, and North Vancouver (where we live).

Made for a wonderful way to spend a few hours on a sunny Sunday in January.
