Walking along a mountain bike trail. Was beautiful and quiet today but I imagine it’s not so nice when there’s a lot of bikes.

I'd imagine it's beautiful, but roads are blocked getting up to the trail, due to covid19.

looked forward to doing this, but it's closed due to covid-19.

Awesome track, not very long though so more suited if you just want a quick hike/walk. Few stairs at the start and can be a little crowded but a nice view up the top.

Not recommend. Trail signs are a mess and easy to get lost.

Was a pretty great trail. The only thing was that my boots and lower pants were absolutely covered in mud by the time we arrived back at the car. Otherwise, it was a beautiful hike with some amazing views other than the huge clumps if crowded people. Will probably quiet down due to COVID19. 4/5 stars and would definitely recommend.

One of my favourite hikes with the kids and our dogs close to the city. Quick hike with a stunning view at the top. Lots of stairs.

We tried to do the 10.8km Quarry Loop as suggested in the AllTrails app but the leg of Cinnamon trail that turns into Rubber Monkey on the other side of Mt. Seymour Rd. was marked permanently closed, so we had to modify accordingly.

Beautiful. No need for snowshoes. Snow tracks or good boots are all you need.

The Suicide Bluffs portion of this route doesn't see much traffic in winter, and will involve trailbreaking through heavy snow with some steep slopes and a lot of undulating terrain. Orange markers are frequent but there are a few spots where it is quite easy to get turned around. With snowshoes, it was a manageable but tiring adventure! Think I'll stick to summer/fall hikes here. Packing an ice axe and crampons probably wouldn't be a bad idea during the winter months. The Dog Mountain trail portion is of course, well groomed and travelled (see "Dog Mountain Trail").

Did it on Dec 21. Nice waterfall. Steep climb at times. Long. Easy to miss the trail. No snow, or ice. Muddy in higher grounds.

Great trail, went clockwise, ascents are challenging. Descents very challenging due to ice.

I love this route but it’s tough! Way harder than Elsay Lake out and back Trail. We did both the lake trail in and then hit the peak and took the west side of the loop back (the trickiest section!). The boulder field on the way up to the peak was sooo much fun (happy it was dry— the rocks were grippy) There is beautiful clear running water half way thru the boulder field which we definitely needed. The west side of this loop is clearly less travelled. We checked app (thank u AllTrails!) fairly frequently to make sure we were on trail. Be prepared with gps and LOTS of food and water tablets or filter if attempting both. After leaving the peak I don’t think we came across any good streams.

Good trail. Easy to follow with flags and cairns. Don’t underestimate the difficulty and time required. I am quite fast and I took 5 hours car to car. I also drained my 3L bladder then refilled (wonderful water at the bottom of the big talus slope before you rejoin with Elsay Lake Trail), and then drank that whole thing. So I used 6L of water for this hike. Amazing views from the top of the gorgeous North Shore backcountry and a bit towards the south (looks like WA has some fires now because it was quite hazy to the south).

Nice and easy trail

Friends and I did this hike on aug 31st 2019 from dog mountain to suicide bluff, some places was muddy but the trail was well marked and well maintained and I found it easy Highly recommend it

Hike up to Dog Mountain was beautiful. Went early in the morning and was the only one up there. The hike up suicide bluffs I would definitely mark as hard but rewarding. The trail up to mystery lake was VERY muddy and slippery so be careful. Took about 4 hours round trip. Saw a couple who said they had seen a bear so keep your eyes open.

Great walk. Amazing walk with great views from Dog Mountain. Hiked on through to Suicide Bluff. Track was quite overgrown, would probably class this section as hard. when we finally made it to Mount Seymour, there was a sign and barricade at the other end stating the trail was dangerous and was closed. No wonder it was overgrown. would have been nice for a sign at the other end stating it was closed. Great hike nevertheless.

Wow what a beautiful, and tough hike. Went up to Mount Elsay counter clockwise, there's a ton of vertical boulder climbing along the way. In the boulder section, keep an eye out for the rock cairns to find your way up. Instead of going in and out we completed the loop, which brought us down into a valley and up another mountain! (Tim Jones Peak) Total time was 10 hours, 7.5 hours of it was moving. The views from Elsay peak, and Tim Jones Peak, and many other points on the loop were incredible. This is on the upper end of intermediate, low end of difficult. Be prepared, start early, bring 3L of water, and bring at least one hiking pole!

I wish I wore hiking boots over shoes. It would have been much easier on my feet with all the rock scrambling. Great trail with some challenging areas.

Counter clockwise from the Dog Mountain trailhead; well marked once at the juncture of Dig (left) and Suicide Bluffs yet obviously less traveled. Stunning views from both Bluffs and then an easy hike out to the ski run. Just over 3 hours, 6 km and 380M of total up.
