Coliseum Mountain

Coliseum Mountain is located in the Lynn Headwaters Regional Park. The trail should be pretty diverse nature wise as well as regarding trail conditions. At the beginning it should be rather flat and easy and pretty steep later. The trip is ~ 20km return, which will take us ~8h. To find out more, visit [1] (that's the park map)and Lynn Valley Headwaters
