This unique succulent prefers dry rocky outcrops or shelves suited to few other plants. The crisp, young leaves of stone crop can be eaten raw or steamed. Being well-adapted to retaining moisture, the leaves can be an emergency source of water as well. Mashed, stone crop is valued as a burn or wound treatment as well.

For the day hiker with bus fare you'll find a double dozen destinations in coastal British Columbia. The Day Hiking section features a range of levels from easy to demanding in both urban and wilderness settings. The hikes featured in BC Car-Free: Exploring Southwestern British Columbia Without a Car are as close as North Vancouver and as far away as the Whistler - Squamish corridor and the Gulf Islands.
