Snowshoe Hollyburn Mountain

    6.5 miles 450 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

    Added by Niki Pike

    A 45 min drive from Vancouver, this hike has views of the city and surrounding area, and can be done year-round (need snowshoes in winter). Dogs are allowed on the trail, as well.

    Park in the Hollyburn cross country parking lot and start your hike up the under the powerlines. After about 15 mins the trail will flatten out and you will arrive at the warming hut. Take a left and follow the orange markers as it slowly weaves its way through a series of trees and valleys.

    Eventually you will reach a junction that points its way to Hollyburn on the right. Take this route and continue climbing uphill for another 20 mins and you will see a lookout on the right-hand side with a beautiful view of Grouse Mountain. Turn back towards the main trail and keep following it until the trees start to thin out a bit and you will approach the peak of Hollyburn.

    Follow your steps on the way down.

    Great adventure close to the city!

    A good friend of mine and I spent a Saturday Snowshoeing Hollyburn! The drive up itself offers amazing views but the views on the way up to the peak are jaw dropping. It can be pretty busy on the weekends but that honestly doesn't take away from the experience at all. If sun is in the forecast, skip the lift lines and snowshoe up to Hollyburn peak instead, a great way to spend your day :)
