Burnaby Mountain


The Veledrome Trail leading up Burnaby Mountain is one of my favourite warm up hikes for hiking season. This hike is about 45 minutes long and is a great leg warm up because it has over 500 stairs! It is not overly challenging, but still provides a great workout and definitely gets the heart beating. The trail is well kept up and has good markings as well. The reward is getting to the top of the mountain and seeing the beauty of the Burrard Inlet. There is a restaurant and park at the top of the mountain as well. The flower gardens and totem poles are also a nice touch. If you look over the totem poles you also get a glimpse of a city view of Burnaby which is also quite beautiful. I am excited to hopefully get to this trail a few more times to whip these legs back in shape for summer!
