Saturday Afternoon Hike: Capilano Canyon

This is a good sized hike with lots of beautiful spots to see the Capilano River, including on top of the dam and down below. This hike takes us from the parking lot across the Cleveland Dam, then down alongside the Capilano River as we make our way over Pipe Bridge and then to the Salmon Hatchery before heading back up to the main parking lot. There are lots stairs on the final climb at the end, but most have handrails, we will not leave anyone behind, and will take as many breaks as we need for those (like me) who need to catch their breath.

Rating: Easy to Intermediate, depending on your level of fitness
Route Length: 4.0 km
Parking: Yes
Dogs: Yes, on and off-leash
Elevation Gain: Approximately 100 m

Let's meet at 1:30 (and will wait until 1:40 for anybody running late) at the west corner of the parking lot, where it turns into the path that leads across the dam. As usual, be sure to dress warm, wear appropriate footwear, bring water and any snacks you'd like, and a camera! Hope to see you there.

    Hi folks. My apologies - I didn't realize the map on the event listing was showing the wrong location. Just to clarify - we are meeting at Cleveland Dam, which is at the top of Capilano Road. We are NOT meeting at the suspension bridge.

    If you need to find me or if you need directions, give me a call -[masked]-0959.

    Thanks,
    Kayt
