We started by leaving a car at the base of Grouse Mountain, as we planned to do this as a one-way hike. After that, we headed to Lynn Valley to where we started the trail.
This is a rewarding and short hike with spectacular views stretching the entire way. Picacho Peak is a 4km round trip with 600m elevation gain.
Grizzly Peak is still one of my favorite scrambles, I can't remember how many times I've done it now but it's amazing every time.
Brandywine meadows and mountain is a challenging but beautiful day hike that leads you through an alpine meadow and finishes with amazing views of the Whistler area.
Black Mountain snowshoe trail has great views of the city and is close to Vancouver.
