Discover BC Parks

from Vancouver

Parkbus is your ride to the great outdoors, connecting Vancouver residents to campgrounds, hiking trails and other outdoor attractions in nearby BC Parks.



This is not a group trip experience - there are no guides and you must be prepared to exlore beautiful BC wilderness on your own.

In BC, Parkbus is a project of BEST (Better Environmental Sound Transportation).

BEST is Vancouver-based non-profit charitable organization with a long history promoting sustainable transportation.

Garibaldi

Joffre Lakes

Steeply rising from Lower Joffre Lake, the glacier-laden peaks are visible from an easily accessible viewpoint 500 metres from the parking lot. If you carry on, the path takes you along the turquoise waters of Middle and Upper Joffre Lakes, each lake more stunning than the last. Joffre Lakes Provincial Park has opportunities for hiking, camping, mountaineering, wildlife viewing, and fishing.


Stawamus Chief

The park provides world class rock climbing opportunities, hiking trails to The Chief's three summits with rewarding views of Howe Sound, Squamish town site and surrounding mountains. The park has opportunities for camping, hiking, rock climbing and scenic viewing atop the Chief.


Alice Lake

Alice Lake is surrounded by towering mountains, dense forests and grassy areas. There are four fresh water lakes that dominate the landscape and make swimming and fishing very enjoyable pastimes. The trail around Alice Lake is a popular one for an evening stroll and for the more adventurous there is the Four Lakes Trail. This is a favourite family park.
