Hike Name: Fat Girls Hiking, Vancouver: Beach Day and Picnic in Deep Cove

Description: We are going to the beach! Panorama Park in Deep Cove has a rocky beach. This event is a day to enjoy the beach together with the community and kayak/SUP for those who chose to! Bring swimwear, water shoes, towels, chairs, blankets, lunch,snacks, water bottle (there is a public fountain) & anything else you may need to enjoy the day. Alison will bring her “sit on top” kayak which she is happy to let others use. You can also rent a kayak or SUP but it is best to reserve in advance (see below for more info).

Indigenous Territories: This event takes place on the unceded territories of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation. Fat Girls Hiking acknowledges that our community members may be guests, settlers & immigrants to this land. We recognize that outdoor recreation is rooted in colonialism and commit ourselves to undoing these dynamics while we’re in community together.

Accessibility info: We will set up a picnic spot in Panorama Park near the packed dirt trail (accessible from Panorama Drive).

Dogs Allowed: Yes, on leash

Kid Friendly: Yes

****PLEASE NOTE****Review the information below to ensure you‘re familiar with our community guidelines:

Fat Girls Hiking a safer space for fat folks and people who live in marginalized identities. We don’t allow any weight loss talk, diet talk or body shaming at any of our events or hikes.

Kids of all ages are welcome (unless noted, typically if there are unsafe conditions that wouldn’t be good for kids, this will be noted in the event description above.)

Dogs are allowed (unless the area where the hike is located doesn’t allow them, typically wildlife refuges or natural conservation areas, this will be noted in the event description above.)

We are inclusive to all genders, all sizes & abilities. We love when non-fat allies show up for us!

We go at the pace of the slowest hiker with NO shame! We lead hikes from the back, so the slowest folks receive the most support from hike leaders.

We are inclusive to queer folks, transgender folks, gender non-conforming folks, feminists, fat folks, people of color & all marginalized people.

Be mindful of gender pronouns! Don’t assume someone’s pronoun by their appearance. Every group hike starts with intros that include everyone stating their name & pronoun!

For more info read the Fat Girls Hiking mission: https://fatgirlshiking.com

Please make sure that these guidelines will meet your expectations when you are participating in the Fat Girls Hiking community in person or online.

Please be aware that parking in Deep Cove is extremely limited. Please let us know if you have room in your car. The map below shows where you can find parking.

By bus: The easiest is to get the #211 bus directly from the Burrard Skytrain Station (bus stop #50405 on the north side of Dunsmuir St just west of Burrard St) which will take you all the way to Deep Cove, no transfers. The final bus stop is located on Banbury Rd just beside Panorama Park.

Fees: None (unless you rent a single kayak or SUP: $39+tax for 2 hours) + parking fee if driving

***Please note that if you decide to rent a kayak or SUP, you should do so as soon as possible because there is only one rental shop, Deep Cove Kayak Centre, and it gets very busy. Rent for 11am-1pm:

Tickets: Fat Girls Hiking group hikes/events have limited tickets available for the safety, enjoyment and to be respectful to the areas we are hiking, other folks on the trail and to create a community where all participants, including our hike leaders, will have an opportunity to connect with one another.

We have a limited amount of free tickets that are limited to 1 per person. We ask that if you are financially able to, consider making a donation to Fat Girls Hiking by purchasing a ticket to this hike. OR support the growth of FGH by donating to one of our accounts.
