Description:

It seems in all these wonderful weekend trips, we forget about some of the nicer mountain dayhikes on the North Shore. We'll get to the one of the taller mountains on the North Shore: Crown Mountain.

We'll head up the BCMC Trail to the Grouse Gondola area, then follow the trail up Crown Mountain. After lunch, we'll return up Crown Pass, and we'll take the gondola back down after we enjoy a beer overlooking Vancouver, or maybe grab some delicious low priced persian food in the Lonsdale area.

This trip is beginner friendly in terms of skills required, but the output will be more intermediate. There's a fair bit of elevation gain for the day (around 1800m for the day). I expect somewhere between 5 and 8 hours for the trip. The trail gets steep towards the end, so some people might want a helmet. Other than that, just some good hikers, $10 for the gondola down, adequate food and water are all that is required. I've got room for four others in the car, so let me know.
