Trail shared by Paul Hiom

A steep trail climbing to the peak of Hollyburn Mountain with spectacular views as a reward.

Paul Hiom

Features Views

Snowshoe access only November to April/May.

Description

The trail climbs quite gradually at first through the alpine forest. As it nears its terminus, the trail becomes quite steep and you may need to look quite closely for the trail markers early in the season. Additionally, there are a couple of short scrambles to reach the peak. The peak itself offers beautiful views over the city and the Lions as a reward.

The trail is well used during the summer for hikers, and you'll likely meet a number of people on the trail on nice days.
