Great hike yesterday. Still some icy patches. Right now. Kinda funny that this hike and rice lake are both coded as “easy” on this app though.

Maintained trail through forest over bridges to viewpoint on top of rock with lots of crowds and everything is wet!

Awesome easy urban trail with exceptional views at the end.

that was a fun hike!

Relatively easy....if youre in decent shape. Lots of stairs and lots of people. Would do it again first thing in the morning. Viewpoint spectacular.Wish Kayla

too many tourists.

too many tourists aviod. Do Baden Powell instead to mount Seymour Hwy instead

Easy to moderate hike: easy in terms of technical skills required but moderate in terms of fitness level. There are lots of steps which are very well maintained and the only way to get across three creeks and gorges. Beautiful, tall trees and a wonderful view at the end. In all, a very well maintained trail with lovely scenery along the way to a beautiful viewpoint.

So many steps

Easy Trail

Great quick hike but way too busy.

Lots of traffic. Too many steps but convenient and close to the city.

Nice little trail but definitely better in Spring or Fall when it is less busy. In summer, it is super humid and pretty busy the whole way.

Nice trail and view but exceedingly busy by 10am.

Easy hike with nice views at the end.

Completed Saturday 13 October 2018.

Note: currently the track is closed between Lillooet Rd and Riverside drive due to bridge and staircase construction, apparently until November. There is no posted detour from the closure. To get around the closed section we walked down river to the road bridge by Canadian Superstore on Mt Seymour Parkway then took a 214 up to Hyannis Drive or you could walk 40mins up. This detour added around an hour for what should have been a 10 minute section of track. In total including the detour we took around 5 hours with a few breaks and lunch on trail.

Aside from the detour the trail is in good condition, at some intersections you need to stop and review the signage or look out for the next marker but fairly easy to follow. I'll echo what others have said in their reviews, we walked from Lynn Canyon to Deep Cove, the two main views are at either end with Lynn suspension bridge and Quarry rock. However even without the views during the walk it's a nice forest walk which was relatively quiet only passing a few others once we had left Lynn and rejoined the crowds at Quarry rock. Waking this way meant we could have a cold beer and a donut upon reaching deep cove.

We did this entirely via transit, very easy. Take a 210 from downtown Vancouver to Phibbs exchange, then a 227 to Lynn Canyon Park entrance at the Ecology centre. Coming back it's a 211 or 212 to Phibbs exchange from Deep Cove then the 210 back to Vancouver.

Quick out and back with a great view from the rock. Always a bit busy but trail goers keep the trail clean.

We tried to hike this trail yesterday but had to turn back because of trail modifications and repairs. I would have thought this application would have included an advisory of these mods rather than leaving it up to the hiker to learn “en route” that two crucial parts of the trail were closed.

I’d say this trail is more moderate than easy. It would be easy for the fit seasoned hiker, so overall a more moderate-easy for the average joe. There are a large amount of stairs initially, then more nearer the middle and a ton near the end of the hike downwards which you then have to come up on your way back. The only downside is how heavily trafficked the trail is.

Easy and dog friendly

This was an easy-moderate hike. Lots of stairs but not too steep, with soft and mossy trails in between. The view at the end is worth the short hike (36 minutes one way on a very relaxed pace).

rather quick hike . went super early to avoid foot traffic. was good but I expected it to be better due to hype of photos.

Awesome hike for views and trail is beautiful. The only downside is that it's busy. The Forest was lovely and we did this pretty quick with our three year old but he's pretty adventurous! check us out @loewenlife for quarry rock and others! Parking is difficult, try to go early.

Fun enough

Fun hike and beautiful look out once you reach quarry rock but I’d put this more as moderate for families as there are a ton of stairs to climb which may not be great for young kids, varied ability or older adults. Can get pretty packed with people in the summer.

Amazing view and wonderful hike!

Trail very well maintained, nice views. I’d say moderate level.

Must do for a trail during summer. Easy to moderate level and definitely worth the view you get to see at the top! Not to be missed out for sure.

Nice view at the end , little busy even though I was there at 9 am. Hike itself wasn’t very hard , very family friendly
