Waterfront parks, rocky viewpoints, river canyons, a suspension bridge - this point-to-point hike covers the best of the North Shore over a moderate route and a testing elevation gain. This leg is the easternmost section of the Baden Powell Trail, a 30 mile route that crosses the North Shore Mountains all the way to Horseshoe Bay, West Vancouver. There is no one map of the entire route. Portions of the trail are shown on maps for Mount Seymour Provincial Park, Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve, and Lynn Canyon Park. With so many intersecting trails, it can be easy to take a wrong turn. Try to keep Baden Powell fleur-de-lis trail markers in sight at all times. Hiking poles may be useful on this hike's steep, rocky descent, positioned about halfway through the route.

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.

Great trail and the view from the lookout is super. Only did to the lookout and back, and was still a moderate challenge with plenty of uphill and stairs.

Fun intermediate hiking. Good for beginners but have the app as it's relatively easy to get lost and end up on other trails

We started at near Blueridge Park and went to Deep Cove

Nice trail - although quite confusing with all the intersecting trails - ended up on Bridle somehow. There are orange tags of a different sort in this area as well so you kinda have to pay attention.

The trees are so dense in some areas, that they actually acts as a sort of umbrella when it rains but it also gets pretty cold in the trees so bring some layers and a raincoat for spring trekking.

If you're hiking in this area keep an ear out for mountain bikers. They were all quite nice but can be a little startling sometimes.

Best thing about hiking this trail is the Honey's doughnuts at the end. Burn those calories hiking to eat them in four bites of deliciousness. So goood

A nice walk in the trees with unfortunately many downed trees and damage from recent storms. Nice but crowded views from Quarry Rock.
