Take a Walk with Google Maps

Walk BC

Walk BC is using Google Maps to show the location of walking routes in British Columbia. The map is a joint project by the BC Recreation and Parks Association and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon.

The map allows users to search for walks by proximity to Vancouver. It is possible to search for walks using a slidebar that allows you to search for walks within any distance between 1km and 150km. It is also possible to filter the results by walk difficulty.

All results are shown on the map and listed in the map sidebar. If you click on a walk map marker you are given a link to details of the walk and the option to print a PDF map of the walk.
