The line separating a scramble from a hike is often blurred, but the following trips offer easy trail and/or offtrail hikes with little or no routefinding and scrambling. This list reflects hikes in Canada appearing in books as well as a few I've done without benefit of a route description. The list is sortable: click Name, Region or Elevation.
