Taryn’s home is in Vancouver but her heart is in the great outdoors.

Her first ever backpacking trip was a 5-day blitz of the West Coast Trail over a decade ago and she’s been hooked on hiking ever since.

You can find her on the trails of Vancouver’s North Shore on weeknights and somewhere in the backcountry of Southwestern B.C. on weekends.

She is passionate about keeping the wilderness wild and is a certified Leave No Trace Trainer. Keep up with Taryn’s
