The Quarry Rock trail beginning in Deep Cove at the Baden Powell trailhead is extremely popular and second only to the Grouse Grind in terms of foot traffic on local trails in the area. Unfortunately, this popularity has led to backups on the trail and great difficulty finding reasonably close parking on the weekends. Luckily, there are several other access trails that will still take you to Quarry Rock while eliminating these problems. If you prefer a hike similar in distance and difficulty, the Baden Powell trail starting from Mount Seymour Rd will work well. There is a medium sized parking lot here that usually has space. As this is still the Baden Powell, just a different section, the trail will feel quite similar. A mix of smooth and rough trails, beautiful new bridges mixed with ancient bridges, several rushing streams, and the same deep forest feel. As you near the trail end, there are actually two lookout points and you will want to visit both. The first is the much quieter Indian Arm Lookout just next to the power lines. And of course next, your final destination will be Quarry Rock Lookout where you will almost certainly be met by a gathering of fellow hikers.

Great trail! Kids and dog friendly. Steep stair climb at first but gradually gets better. Stunning views once your get on top of Quarry Rock.

The Baden Powell part of the trail is nice, but there is very little view and you’re walking under the power lines on the part going up the hill. I have absolutely no idea where that picture was taken, because it wasn’t on this trail. That is for sure.
