We are taking the Mount Seymour Trail and Camping between the First and Second Pumps past Brockton Point.

A busy trail that starts near the north end of the top parking lot, traversing Brockton Point and First and Second Pump Peaks.

From Parking Lot 4 along the Mount Seymour Trail to Second Pump Peak serves as a winter route.
