Ran out of Battery before recording 2nd half. Great hike! Felt intermediate with a challenging incline. Stopping alone the way for water breaks made it very manageable. Some rocky paths, snow at the top. Crampons were a huge help, not required but definitely made ascending and descending on packed snow. Great view!

Great fall hike. Difficult sections and decent but well worth it. Very heavily marked.

Very nice view at the top, but super long and difficult hike. Not a lot to see on the way up. Gate closes at 9pm sharp. This hike took a lot longer than I expected. Glad I did it, but won't be rushing back here anytime soon.

I did this as a day hike on Aug 19th, 2017. We parked at the Lower Seymour Conservative Reserve and hiked into Lynn Headwaters park as the access road has been closed since 2016. It took us 9 and a half hours in total, with a 20 minute lunch break and a few short snack breaks on the way up. The hike itself was fantastic, especially once we were on the coliseum trail. In total, we saw 6 other people over the course of 6 hours, so it feels really remote. It makes for a very long day hike, so I'd recommend an early start if you are planning it. The views are pretty tame until you get into the alpine, where it opens up into a 360 degree panorama of the surrounding mountains. Nothing too technical, just quite steep for a long time and a lot of walking for one day. Definitely recommend this one!

Challenging and rewarding hike. Excellent view from the top.
Make sure to allow plenty of time if hiking later in the day because the car park shuts promptly at 9pm.

Nice clear markers. The road to park closer to the trail head is closed it's an extra 20 min walk to get to the Lynn Loop. Nice steady incline, little sketch going down cause of all the rocks. Went early, basically no people at all!

Did this on July 3rd, clear path, well marked, a bit challenging but nothing crazy.
Took us just over an hour each way.
Gorgeous view from top!

Went yesterday July 1st and found it really accessible and easy to roam. We took our dog and the pavement was mostly flat. You could bring a stroller. The view point on the bridge is really beautiful about 2km in. Had an amazing time. The water was so blue and refreshing. Amazing place for a walk and a date.

Great view at the top, challenging loose steep rock terrain for the first half. No snow in sight

A good early season peak, moderately trafficked and basically snow free by the end of May. However, the trail resembles an old creekbed for most of the way and the loose rock and can be difficult for footing. Hiking boots are highly recommended. There are a handful of limited vistas on the trail, but the end of the trail offers great views of Mt. Baker, Burnaby Mountain, and the Second Narrows Bridge.

gps trail is incomplete and lacks the last kilometer to summit - no clear markers, be prepared. btw gate is open 7am-9pm

5-hours round trip, steep and with abundance of loose rocks, some muddy and nearly no-through spots in trail. Trail is entirely within the woods with few vista points. Vista at the top was somewhat worth it.

-Steep uphill sections. Great alternative to Grouse.
-Very rocky.
-Path was always clear.
-Maintenance spotty in parts
-End vista point and a few peekaboo views, mostly interior of forest.

This hike was not overly long not was it short. There were a few challenging spots but over pretty well rounded. If you have knee or joint issues be aware the decent is not very kind on your body. Took about 4 hrs from the parking lot to the top and back again.

Hiked up there in mid May. The trail was clear and the weather could not have been better. Nice workout on a Saturday morning. Less crowded and less commercial than Grouse Grind.
Will do it again.

Just did the Lynn Peak today it was awesome! Very challenging terrain but rewarding once you finished. Nice work out for the cardio. Will definitely do it again!

September 05, 2015. Started at 7:15AM (Had to park outside the gate as it doesn't open until 9:00AM). 6.5hrs up and 4.5hrs down. A little cloudy and windy at the top but well worth it.

Great view from the top of the city below... Not sure what everyone's beef is. The hike up is rough but the hike down is worse... Most of the trail is loose rock material making traversing down a little bit challenging. Good trail overall, measured from parking lot to peak it's 11.5km not 9

Quite challenging. Took us 9-10 hours from the far parking lot. There was a glacier lake at the top to fill up on water (borrowed someone's filter) otherwise 3L went fast.

it's a good workout, but the view is pretty lame considering the effort put in. Much better hikes out there. Try coliseum!

Excellent hike done in perfect weather. Early May 2015. Agree only one good look out but get up there alone and the rocks on top are serene and provide a great place to crash and relax for an hour. View is actually pretty good on a good day but I can imagine it being a little too distant if cloudy.

Steady climb.. Agree that for the amount of work, the reward is average. A better view from Dog Mountain in all honesty.

Good hike took about 3:30 with plenty of stops. Downside is there is only one really good view, when you get to the top. Hiked it in November and trail was still in good enough condition just a little muddy. Would recommend hiking boots or gators if hiking in fall months.

Wonderful hike took about 3hr in full, up and down.
