Trip Planning Questions

Do you plan to hike the full loop?

Do you intend to car shuttle (if yes, use the planning forum)?

If I needed to reschedule to the Sunday, are you available?

The Plan:

Meet at the End of the Line Coffee Shop in Lynn Valley, hike along the Varley Trail to Lynn Headwaters Trailhead, past Norvan Falls, through Hanes Valley, up to Crown Pass, up to Goat-Little-Goat col, down to Grouse Lodge, down a trail (there are several to choose from) to wander back to Lynn Valley.  I believe that there are some less-steep trails to the west of the BCMC and Larsen trails to take back to Lynn Valley.

Not a fast-paced hike, more like medium.

If you would like to do a car shuttle, please use the planning forum to plan.  I most likely will walk to the meeting location.


  • ride the tram down and either
    • hike along Baden Powel back to Lynn Valley
    • take the bus back to Lynn Valley
    • pre-arrange leaving a car at the base of Grouse
