Amazing workout & great experience - you can take it all the way from Deep Cove across the North Shore Mountains but unless you're in really good shape & training for the Knee Knacker run one or two sections are probably enough. Please remember to...More

For those who know the trail it is fine. However, generally speaking it is not well maintained (fallen trees or washouts may obstruct trail for an extended time) and is poorly marked. Those of us who know the trail have no difficulty knowing where to...More

Well- marked, steep in places with wood stairs and walkways. Look for critters along the way, like lizards and spiders. Lots of well behaved dogs that are clearly seasoned hikers. Wear proper footwear as can be slippery with stones and ground that are inclines

This is a wonderful asset for North Shore residents. A trail that goes from Horseshoe Bay to Deep Cove with many access points so you can make it as tough or easy as you want. The trail takes you through second growth forest at least...More

My husband and I met friends in Deep Cove and did the hike to Quarry Rock. This hike is truly lovely. The trails are very well kept, there are boardwalks and stairs all over. It's well looked after. I personally don't like stairs but I...More
