Participant Information

Hanes Valley Loop 

Full circuit: Lynn Valley to Lynn Valley by way of Hanes Valley and Grouse: 30+ km.

Shorter options available for those wishing to shuttle from the base of Grouse:

  1. hike down the BCMC trail, or
  2. ride the Grouse Lodge tram.


The Plan

Meet at the End of the Line Coffee Shop in Lynn Valley.  From there we will hike along the Varley Trail to Lynn Headwaters Trailhead and on towards Norvan Falls.  Possible short detour to view the falls before continuing across Lynn Creek and up through Hanes Valley to Crown Pass.  Next is to hike up to Goat-Little-Goat col, down to Grouse Lodge, and finish the hike down along several trails back to Lynn Valley. 

Moderately paced hike.


Shuttle Options:

  • take the bus or taxi back to Lynn Valley, or
  • pre-arrange leaving a car at the base of Grouse (use the planning forum.)
