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.

We started at bottom of Nicole’s - so the tough part was at beginning rather than end. Where the trail starts on the map there isn’t any parking so better plan ahead

I was able to bike the majority of it, last bit got a little too bushy and muddy (early March). Would definitely walk it again, bicycling would probably be much better in the summer.

This is a short, fairly flat trail but there are a couple rough patches and quite a few roots. Very pretty along the river!

Nice trail for exercise, a fair bit of surrounding noise (hwy, blasting and dirt bikes).

Bikes have the right of way on this loop. The majority of this trail is in the mountain bike park.

We liked this hike! Some good views of the lake, nice beach spot at the bottom. Bit of a work out but not too tough.

Fun short hike for the family during winter. Train cars and suspension bridge are nice payoffs.

Snowy, slushy, hail-riddled day hiking this trail. Totally got lost around Powerline Trail and a few other spots. Really a very nice trail, but best done when there isn't snow as some of the hike can be quite treacherous.

Easy + Fast trail. Close to town for a quick breath of fresh air. Light to moderate traffic during the winter.

Beautiful day and great discovery. Loved this walk even though we went the wrong way. Walked for an hour and enjoyed the beautiful views. Lived here for 53 years, just 20 mins south, and never knew this place existed. Will be coming back to do the loop!

Easy walk around the lake with a couple of short uphill sections. Good if you are with young or old family members. Views of the lake are nice but nothing very special. I'd choose the Mt Gardner hike if you only have one day on Bowen and want a challenge with a good reward.

I highly recommend renting a bicycle and riding in and around Stanley Park. It's a gorgeous place to spend half a day. We actually rode bicycles all around Vancouver including Grandview island. This loop trail is very busy during weekends with runners and cyclists.

Beautiful trail with an amazing view. This is not one Id call easy. Lots of climbs and stairs. Would rate it closer to moderate.

The jewel of Vancouver. You get to see some of the best views Vancouver has to offer.

I would definitely not call this a moderate hike! There are some ups and downs but all in all it's a really great walking/running loop with beautiful views of the lake. I would definitely recommend this loop to anyone looking for a nice walk or a nice run!

It was wonderful, waters quite high but didn't effect any of the trails. just a nice and easy wet coast morning!

nice walk and super clean trail. my pup loved it, special the little beach in the south.

This trail is currently closed.

Great hike and beautiful view from Quarry Rock.

A bit hard to find, park at Olive's Market. The trail can be a bit hard to follow at times, look for the orange blazes, teal as well. Lots of great views, cute suspension bridge near the trains. Nice payoff for the effort.

Great hike but very busy.
