These kits are made possible by the support of the BC Parks Licence Plate Program and BC AdventureSmart.
Given the strong community interest and limited number of kits, some patrons will experience a wait before a backpack becomes available. We appreciate your patience.
Hiking trips are the responsibility of the individuals checking out the Hiking ExplorePACKS. BC Parks, Adventure Smart, and Richmond Public Library will not be held liable for injury due to the usage of the Hiking ExplorePACKS.
