This is a natural beauty all year long. In the winter, its the best family ski resort going with that real family feel, not big business. In the remaining three seasons there is wonderful hiking for miles. Get up early and climb to first or second peak for a spectacular sunrise.

If you want a challenging road bike ride - ascend this mountain of 1040 m in 12.5 km (roughly 3300 ft in 9 miles) view obscured by clouds and much colder to dress warmly before you scream back down the mountain

Been taking visitors here for 45 years! I don't let them see the view until getting to the top. . . Parking, and walking them back to a view-point. . . The first word is always: WOW. . . obviously BEST on a clear day . . . if the clouds are low. . . (in Vancouver?) better to save... More

We started hiking Dog Mountain but realized it would be a muddy, slippery 5km round trip hike so we turned back under the 1km mark and decided to hike towards the top of Mount Seymour. Trail was quite rocky with patches of slippery icy snow higher up. Lots of narrow paths so you ended up bottle necked and waiting your... More

On a lovely sunny Saturday afternoon we headed up Mt Seymour, a lovely drive in itself. Parking at the ski lodge we walked to First Lake and then on up Dog Mointain to spectacular views of Vancouver. The hike was a little slippery with packed snow but we managed okay in running shoes.

Yes I've done the Grouse Grind (boring). BLT on Cypress. Yes I've been all over the North Shore mountains...hiking, biking, snow shoeing. The best and cheapest bang for your buck (pun intended) I believe is Mount Seymour. It offers all levels of challenge, depending on time. If you want a relatively easy hike with a spectacular view/payoff...you have the Dog.... More

Lived in the Deep Cove area for several months and never tired of exploring Mt Seymour Mountain. The trail to Elsay lake is great and is great for swim and relax in. Also the hike to First peak is another great hike and offers spectacular views of Downtown Vancouver and the surrounding areas. It is well marked out and the... More

Make no mistake, the 5km round trip is not for untrained people. At least you should have a proper hiking boots. It was May and we still walked a bit through snow. When we arrived on the rock of Dog Mountain it was a great view onto Vancouver.

Went to Mt.Seymour and hiked the Dog Lake trail. There was still quite a bit of snow on the trail which made it slippery, but didn't matter too much. I am sure within 2-3 weeks this will all be gone. The trail itself is not grueling, but there are alot of tree roots, and mud puddles. I was watching my... More

A group of co-workers decided to try out snowshoeing for the first time and we picked Mount Seymour as it as still open at the beginning of April. The rental part was easy and the girl at the desk gave us a map with her suggestion for the trails to take. The rental snowshoes once we figured out how to... More
