Here in Granisle I walk the dogs up the road to the dump. It is along Lake Babine. The Bear Island campsite is great for a walk part way around the lake. Then there is the other direction which brings us to the Fulton River fisheries. They got real picky about dogs not being loose there but the roads around the channels are great for a good walk. There is also the road before the fisheries which is my current favorite as there is little traffic and the dogs can run. My not favorite lately was a road about 40 km. from Granisle toward Topley. There is a road supposedly leading to a falls and there is no traffic but our dog got waylaid there and we just got lucky that somehow she managed to hitchhike home to Granisle. Picture a little white ball of fluff with her paw out hitching a ride home and getting it. No bad people on that road!

I live in Victoria and the trail around Elk Lake is something I have enjoyed and want to do again. It is conveniently accessible for running strollers and dogs. It is a 10k and good for training off pavement for the planned 10k run.
I set myself the goal, last fitness kick, to go up and around the back side of Mt. Finlayson twice in one day. Still on my goal list.
What are affectionately known as the Swamp Run & the Hospital Run are my faves :) Around the swamp tends to lose its appeal once the bugs come out though :)
Anywhere in the 100 Mile House area is fantastic for a walk run or bike!

I started this forum thread to hear about your favorite places to be outside and active in BC. Post the places and what you do there. You can even put a link to it on google maps!
Here's mine: I love the 108 Like Trail! I love to bike and Run around it. Its about 12 Km around if you include the little lake beside it. Other people horse back ride and cross country ski in the winter too!
