Of all the spectacular trails—hiking, biking or otherwise—to conquer around Vancouver, the Dumpling Trail is arguably the most satisfying. Nearby Richmond is famed for top-notch Asian cuisine, so it’s no surprise that 20 restaurants offering delectable dumplings are all just a hop, skip and bite away. As with any trail, a map, sturdy walking shoes and stretchy pants are recommended. Along the way, discover dough-wrapped specialties such as prawn-stuffed har gow and soup-filled xiao long bao. Regional offerings like bubble tea, kimchi and hand-pulled noodles make excellent trail companions, too. A truly tasty trek.
