North Shore Baden Powell Trail

Looking down at Deep Cove from Quarry Rock

The Baden Powell Trail is a world-class hiking trail that stretches from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver to Deep Cove in North Vancouver.

Baden Powell Trail

The close to 50 kilometres of maintained trails make up the Baden Powell Trail. They go past the entrance to the Grouse Grind’s grueling trail of steps up to Grouse Mountain, through magnificent Capilano River Regional Park, past the Lynn Valley Suspension Bridge in Lynn Canyon Park, over the Seymour River and up to Quarry Rock overlooking Deep Cove and the waters of Indian Arm.

It’s trails like the Baden Powell Trail that make the North Shore world-famous for nature and outdoor recreation.

The Baden Powell Trail is not a loop, meaning you need to arrange transportation differently for the start and end of your hike. The trail also has many different entrance points so you can break the hike up over many different days and trips.

The section of the Baden Powell Trail from just above Panorama Park in Deep Cove to Quarry Rock is about a 1-hour hike. It’s a beautiful trail through the trees with a fair number of stairs that’s suitable for most people. The view from the top on a sunny day is absolutely spectacular, and makes for a great resting spot before returning back down the hill.

For more information on the approximately 5 hour/12 km eastern start of the route, click on the Baden Powell Deep Cove to Lynn Canyon Section of the trail.
