Running this Hikes Near Vancouver platform including this website, the community hiking group, Instagram account and Facebook page is a lot of work. It takes a ton of my time, which I give freely because I love hiking so much and want to help break down some of the barriers that prevent others from discovering the incredible natural world. Hearing from HNV community members near and far truly makes my day, and makes it all worth it. Below are some of the wonderful messages I have received that help me get through the tougher days, letting me know that the work I’m putting in is really having an impact. Much love to you all, and thanks for following along!
