Mount Seymour Trail

Mount Seymour Trail

This trail, as the name suggests, is in Mount Seymour provincial park, North Vancouver. Trail head starts at the Mount Seymour Ski resort. It’s an out-and-back trail. Round trip is about 8 km and elevation gain is about 550 m. Parking lot is huge therefore you should be able to find a space unless you come during peak winter skiing season.

In the trail, there are 3 peaks, the first (pump) peak, the second (pump) peak (aka Tim Jones peak), and the third peak (Mount Seymour itself). The trail is ascending almost all the way from the trail head to the second peak. There is minimum tree coverage therefore proper sun protection is necessary. The trail will be covered by snow most time of the year so micro spikes are a good idea to bring along during your hike. There are several popular hiking trails, like Dog Mountain, share part of this trail, therefore an offline trail map is highly recommended. In the winter or spring, the trail marks will be covered by snow. During your hike, pay attention to any available trail markers (or your offline map) because some trails will lead you to other difficult and long hikes.

You will have beautiful views of surrounding mountains and city of Vancouver on any of three peaks.
