Outdoor Adventures with Your Little One: Top Stroller-Friendly Trails in Prince George

by Bailey Bouwman

Summer is here, and it's time to enjoy the beautiful outdoors with your little one. Prince George boasts many beautiful parks and trail networks that are perfect for stroller walks. Whether you're looking for a leisurely stroll or an all-terrain adventure, these stroller-friendly trails offer something for everyone.

One thing to note is that in the baby groups, I see people suggest some trails as being stroller friendly when they aren't always - we all have different ideas about what is an easy trail to take a stroller on and what isn't. It depends on what you're using, and your personal strength. 

At Nest & Sprout, we're passionate about helping expectant parents and families find the best products for their little ones. As a maternity and children's boutique, we offer a carefully curated selection of baby gear, clothing, and accessories to make life with kids a little easier and a lot more stylish. We're proud to offer the Veer Cruiser and Veer Cruiser XL - versatile, all-terrain stroller wagon that are perfect for exploring the great outdoors with your little one. And we're excited to bring even more strollers and baby gear to Northern BC in the coming years, so stay tuned!
