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

We were snowshoeing in the free section, the trail to First Lake. No fees involved for this trail, even the parking is free. We actually set up to hike to Dog mountain, which is about 1 km after First Lake and was supposed to have a lovely view, but it is much tougher to walk in the snow than on... More

Family had lots of fun at mount Seymour skiing and snowboarding . But don't expect a 5 minute black diamond ride down . Lucky if you get 2 minutes . But for non extreme downhillers. Good ride . And magic carpet at the bunny slopes was so easy for daughter to use

I learned how to ski here back in the late 70's and have visited this place ever since. Not as glitzy as Grouse but is a great place to ski as it's usually thought of after Grouse and Cypress. Great ski runs and reliable lifts.

What more could you want. Seymour is often overlooked when visiting Vancouver but it is a must. Although hiking can be busy in the summer, it's well worth spending a day exploring Brockton or Dog Mountain.
