The trails is about 3 km long. It takes you to Quarry Rock (a huge boulder), where you can enjoy the view of Deep Dove and Indian Arm. With young children and casual walking speed, it should take about 1 hour to get to Quarry Rock. The trail can be tough on your feet if you don't have a pair... More

The first stop is the Quarry Rock, beautiful view, but make sure you get there early, otherwise there is to many people. I took the 12,2 Km to the Suspension Bridge at Lynn Canyon. It is quite easy, across the forest and you can find nice pleaces. Just before going up to the bridge you can go down the river... More

So many great spots to stop and enjoy true nature only a 20 minute drive from Vancouver. Well marked trail, watch out for mountain bikes.

FANTASTIC! It's an intermediate hike as it was suggested. The nature all around this hike was amazing. Make sure you do climb up to Quarry Rock, also known as Grey Rock. Pack a light lunch and enjoy/embrace the view from this stunning site! You will be able to clearly see beautiful Deep Cove and Indian Arms. Also, way back in... More

Loved the Baden-Powell trail. We went the 12K from Deep Cove to Lynn Canyon. It was a huge challenge but so beautiful

This shorter trail (the end bit from deep cove to Quarry Rock) is one of my faves. It can be tricky finding the trail head (let alone parking!). Once you begin it's a steep and technical start. There are lots of ups and downs throughout but it's a well marked trail and plenty of opportunity to stop and catch your... More

Great hike. Quite a manageable hike for most. Some definite steep and raggedy portions but very easy for someone in decent walking order. Lots of people on it. Including morons who pack wireless speakers up and blast their crappy pop music for everyone to hear. Way to get into nature and enjoy it. Idiots. I wanted to smash their heads... More

This is the hike that starts in Deep Cove and ends in Horseshoe Bay. You cannot do the whole hike. It is best to pick a piece of it. If you only have an hour or two then hike the Deep Cove end of it ending at Quarry Rock. This is an actual hike. You will need at least running... More

I hiked this trail from Deep Cove to Horseshoe Bay over a couple of days. It's kind of wild that at times you're practically walking down a suburban street next to houses, and other times you're so deep in the woods that if anything bad happened you would be in deep trouble. So, my opinion is that it is a... More

Nice enough. Very crowded. Up and down more than necessary. Not particularly well marked, but otherwise clean and well-maintained.
