  • Hello Lifespan hikers, it's been a while, but we should get out on a hike before the snow comes.

    The Dog Mountain Trail is a short hike from Mount Seymour that offers a spectacular view of Vancouver on a clear day. Unfortunately the weather looks like it's going to be rainy, but that's fine, just bring some rain gear and we should still get a decent view from there.

    From the parking lot, walk towards the BC Parks sign at the northwest corner. Walk north along the wide gravel trail for about 20 meters until you see a small sign and a trail that goes into the trees on your left.

    Enter and walk down the small hill to the first bridge crossing a small stream. The trail makes its way around tree roots and through rocky areas staying relatively flat with only the occasional small hill. In the winter, the trail is nice snowshoe along.

    Time: 2 hours
    Distance: 5km
    Elevation Gain: minimal

    How to get to Dog Mountain (from Vancouver)
    Estimated Driving Time from Vancouver: 50 minutes

    The Dog Mountain Trail starts at the top of Mount Seymour in North Vancouver. To reach the parking lot, drive east to the Trans Canada Highway (Highway #1) and enter the highway heading westbound. Continue across the Iron Workers Memorial Bridge (Second Narrows) and take Exit #22, Mt. Seymour Parkway, shortly after crossing the bridge. At the set of lights, turn right onto Mt. Seymour Parkway and continue along the parkway for about 4km until you reach the traffic lights and small shopping area at Mt. Seymour Road. Turn left onto Mt. Seymour Road and continue straight as the road begins to climb up Mount Seymour for the next 13km. Once at the parking lot, the trail begins near the furthest northwest corner.

    Hi all, unfortunately the weather looks to be a little too touch-and-go tomorrow for this particular hike, so we're going to have to postpone this one and hopefully we'll have a nicer looking weekend coming up! Looking forward to seeing some of you at the Genome BC event on Monday.

    Hi everyone, I'm new here.
    Is anyone driving in from near a Skytrain that is willing to give me a lift? I'll bring you a coffee or pay for gas or something. I live near Commercial station but can meet at any station you'd like.
