Good place to know

Amazing hike! One of the hardest hikes I have done. Very steep and you must take the gondola back down. It was busy when we went in September. Great views and the restaurant at the top was very good.

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

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

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.

Tough terrain at times. Great views!

Nice to do when the weather is warm.

This thing kicked my ass. Legs feeling it a few days after still. Did it quickly. Just to second peak and back. But should not have done it quickly. Definitely a good challenge and beautiful views to see

Favourite hike to do every year

Mid January 2018 trail is good shape no snow very enjoyable

Great hike and beautiful view from Quarry Rock.

Little bit of everything

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.

Easy and short hike. Great finish by the beach

Great, but can be very busy!

One of my favourite hikes in Vancouver so far - although I've only been here 3 months.
Tough but not difficult. Steep steps to start and some moderate climbing (chain assisted) between 1st and 2nd peaks. We didn't go to 1st peak, but 2nd and third are definitely worth the effort and a little quieter than leading up to 1st.

Did the loop back from 3rd peak, but this was very strenuous on our knees after the climb and would probably have preferred to return the same way (even with the chain assisted decent)

Definitely recommend this walk, giving 3 - 4 hours not to be rushed.

Easy, year around trail. Nice scenery. The canyon is very beautiful. It took us 4-5 hours to finish the whole trip.

there's a rocky part under a bridge that was slightly tricky and had to cross a stream a couple times. the train went by shortly after we made it to the wreck. there's a part towards the end where we had to walk really close to the tracks for a couple minutes or so, so we finished just in time. we took the sea to sky trail back.

Difficult straight up trail. Challenging but getting more difficult as it keeps getting busier every tourist season. Upside is store/restaurant at top and you can treat yourself to a latte at Starbucks when done!

Short hike and a good view. Not 5 stars because it’s too populated. Parking is a nightmare and by the time you get to the rock you’re grouped up with about 20 other people. Basically, everyone has to take turns seeing the view. I prefer back country / solo hiking, but this would be a good beginner/family hike.

Rented bikes and cruised the whole way around. Great day!

I like to come here early in the am m- f when parking is still available and everyone is at work... possibly when it rains too! its quick and easy to take the dog up to see a quick view and back to ur car before anyone's even had any coffee .

I have a love hate relationship with this hike. It is a relentless climb. From the first stair there is no level or down hill sections. 2.5kms of pure leg torture with 2650ft of elevation gain. Choose this hike if you are looking for an intense workout and not so much about the views along the way. It’s a VERY busy trail too so be ready to hike with lots of company.

Such a awesome hike! The entrance/parking is hard to find if you are not familiar with the area! It’s behind the olive store. I would suggest doing the actual hike to the trains. There was a lot of very pretty waterfalls along the way. However I would take the train tracks back! It’s way faster and easier! Be careful however because it’s still a active railroad. I would make sure your dogs are on a lease for this hike, as there are a lot of cliff like edging along the trail .

Walk or cycle. A must do for anyone visiting Vancouver.
Bring your swimmers for Third beach if the weather is nice.
