Beginner friendly trip to Hanes Valley

The Plan

To hike up Grouse from the North side via Lynn Valley, Hanes Valley, and Crown Pass. See the message board and Hanes Valley Trail for more information. The beginning and end of this trip are rather tame, but the middle goes through some very rugged and steep terrain.


September 26, 2009. Meet at the Lynn Headwaters Regional Park gate around 8am.


This is a transit accessable trip, with a different starting and end point. If people have cars and want to drive, it is suggested that one car be left at Grouse (for ferrying duties) and the remaining cars be parked outside of the gate at Lynn Headwaters. Also remember to bring $5 for the ride back down from the top of Grouse mountain.

The 210 leaves Burrand Station every half hour in the morning. Depart 6:52am, arrive 7:35am. Depart 7:22am, arrive 8:05am.

The 236 departs Grouse Mountain every 15 minutes in the evening for Lonsdale Quay, then the SeaBus will take you to downtown and the SkyTrain. Depart Grouse: 4:02pm, 4:17pm, 4:32pm, 4:47pm, 5:02pm, 5:17pm, 5:32pm, 5:47pm, 6:02pm, 6:17pm, 6:32pm, 7:02pm, 7:32pm, 8:32pm, 9:32pm


The usual for a day hike. Make sure to bring a headlamp, touque and some extra food.
