Seriously recommend this hike. Well signposted, good trail .... and those views oh my! Not 1 but 3 or 4 breathtaking viewpoints along the way, and stunning Arbutus trees everywhere. Love this hike. Good size parking lot at trailhead. Good family hike.

Incredible can’t wait to go back

Beautiful!!! But quite hard considering I’m out of shape & it’s up up up the whole way to the lake!!!! Worth it though!!!!

Beautiful! I had my snowshoes, but didn’t need them last weekend. It was quite easy (I’m out of shape ;) with beautiful views on the drive there & back, but also at the lake. Beautiful!!!

Great even in early spring

Beautiful and very clean. Trail is well marked and very clear. It’s pretty much all uphill the whole time but it’s pretty gradual and manageable. May not be great for seniors or small kids. But, We’re not exactly in the best shape and it wasn’t really a struggle at all for us. We went on a nice warm day in March so it wasn’t icy and whatever ice was there was pretty slushy so it wasn’t a problem. Be mindful of ice if you’re going in the winter- this trail would be pretty hard with the ice! Great trail for running.

An absolutely amazing hike. Did this back in July. It requires a ferry ride to get to the trailhead so make sure to stop by and grab a ticket beforehand.

The trail itself winds through the mountain forests before breaking through the tree line. There are a couple very cool waterfalls on the way up, and the last part of the hike is amazing and intense, with a ladder up to a cave and then some cliff side scrambling (with a cable for safety) to get to the valley where the trail’s namesake is located.

Leaving the trail also requires a ferry back. Don’t miss the last one or they’ll leave you and send the park rangers to pick you up later. When we hiked there were two women who got left behind. Know your limits and watch the clock so that this doesn’t happen to you.

Nice groomed trail for a nice winter walk. Love that the trail goes in the forest and not just around it. Was very peaceful as we only saw one couple the whole afternoon that we were there.

Lovely quiet walk with the sound of flowing water. Trail well maintained. Note that historic bridge over river is closed and under constuction until “spring 2018”. Spotted a pair of Trumpeter Swans in pond upstream from dam, quite impressive and unexpected for March 18, 2018. (see photos)

Hiked it march 17 looks like construction at the bottom is nearly complete this was a Saturday so no activity. If you came on a week day not sure they would let you up. The hiking was great, snow starts around the 500-600 M range but not a problem getting to the look out. I did not attempt the lake deep snow.

I don't recommend. Views are not more than OK and the path is full of rocks and roots. You will see nothing except trees for 99% of your hike. You can find way better hikes in the area.

another amazing day!!!!

Well kept trail with nice views. The waterfall is nice as well.

Nice 9km walk. Just beautiful!

I think Alltrails must review the description recorded for Quarry Rock. Is it a good trail? Absolutely. Love it. I hike it very often. Should it still be classified as easy? No! People new to Quarry Rock think they will just walk in the forest, like you would walk in Stanley Park. That is not the case. I think it should be classified as intermediate. The first segment of the trail is quite steep. Other segments are also cardio challenging, which is good if you are looking for that type of exercise (like me), but beginners, parents of young children, and seniors should be advised that it has several stairs throughout the trail. It is also muddy and slippery by parts, so definitely bring some good running shoes. I personally prefer hiking boots for that trail. People new to the trail should also know that it is now extremely popular and it does get crowded quickly. The narrow passages make it tough for one to take a break without slowing down the entire line. Be ready to keep up with the pace! Overall though, the scenery is great and the view at the end is very rewarding. I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 just because it is now crazy popular and access is becoming a problem.

Some spot are great some spots are very easy but worth the time to do in 2 hrs there and back

Great start at Powerline then turns flat .Lots of cool spots to look at and some small off trail worth exploring.

the winter maintenance on this road stops About 2 km from the parking lot with a large snowbank blocking the road so you cant access the parking lot.

I absolutely love this trail, I have gone end to end many times and it is a fantastic walk.

This is such a nice, short hike. There are a few places of slight elevation, but I saw people of all ages and a variety of abilities doing it. I have done this hike twice. Once several years ago with my Vancouverite ex-fiance when I was still living in Iowa. The second time was on my own after I moved to the area to go to school. The second time was better.

Map is now incorrect as it looks like a section of trail has been washed out and now closed off near the Headly St corner/playground ... just walk through the playground and pick up the trail on the other side instead of going down behind the tennis courts and trying to get into that bit.

definitely needed snow shoes today (17th Mar 2018). Nice hike through trees. we went anti clockwise and it felt like it was uphill all the way! if you can find the trail to go clockwise from the car park that might seem a bit easier. Definately a hike thats worth the effort though

Walking along the river was nice but not much else to look at and trail was not very well kept when I visited.

Easy walking ended up being 7.6km in length. The boardwalk makes it easy to do.

snow packed trails some muddy spot. Nice hike

One of my favorite trails thus far. It requires a good push as most of the trail is on an incline. The view from the top is incredibly spectacular and beyond worth the struggle towards the peak.

We are not avid hikers and we still managed to complete the trail close to an hour and a half. It is so worth it!!!

We wore crampons and wished we had brought poles as well. However, we were hiking on a fresh batch of snow so poles are probably not needed when the path is beat down.

The weather at the top is quite chilly. We encountered a swift wind as we left the tree line to reach the peak. Prepare accordingly!

intense if you run the hill and try to beat your time otherwise a very easy but scenic hike

easy, highly populated but beautiful views.

Great trail but please hikers...pick up after your dogs!
