This trail starts off as an easy hike alongside Lynn Creek, before a challenging creek crossing (could be impossible in higher water) leads to a fairly well marked route through the Hanes Valley. Watch out for bears in this lush valley before scrambling up the steep scree/snow covered approach to Crown Pass. Even in July there was a lot of snow on the pass and on the traverse past Goat Mt., Little Goat Mt, and then over Dam Mt, so the trail was at times hard to follow. After taking in the spectacular 360 degree views, finish up by hiking down Dam Mt. to Grouse Mt. resort, and then down the Grouse Grind. Flat spots for camping on this trail are few and far between, so if you find a good spot, stick with it. Could be done as a challenging day hike.

Difficulty: moderate;Total Distance: 9 km;Elevation Gain: 450m;Give yourself: 5 hours;Highest Point: 1450 metres; Mt. Seymour trail offers three peaks of stunning views. Views of Vancouver, the lower mainland, the Indian Arm, and of what appears to be a never ending stretch of coastal mountains. On a clear day you can even see Vancouver Island. All of this is available from moderate hike from an easily accessible trail, which makes Mt. Seymour one of the most popular North Shore hiking spots.

Region: The North Shore; Difficulty: Difficult; Time: 1.5 - 2 hours; Distance: 2.9km; Elevation Gain: 853 meters; Season: June - September; Camping: No; Dog Friendly: No; Public Transit: Yes; Approx. 30 minutes from Vancouver. The Grouse Grind is Vancouver's most used trail and is renowned for its challenge in requiring physical strength and endurance in order to make it to the top. In less than 3km, the trail climbs more than 850m. Due to the large number of people that use this trail, primarily for exercise, maintenance workers have had to build wooden stairs on much of the path in order to prevent further erosion from overuse.
