Baden-Powell Trail 04/05/08

Carollyne on the Baden-Powell trail:
“Eight of us enjoyed hiking from Lynn Headwaters to Grouse Mountain. The trail is in good condition, and we shared the trail with a number of friendly mountain bikers in the first half where the trail also has signs for BCMBA. Bikers and hikers accommodated one another well. We somehow missed the first viewpoint described by Dawn Hanna, but found the others, although the fog in Burrard Inlet obscured the views somewhat. MacKay Creek now has a log bridge over it so all the waterways are passable. Mosquito Creek was particularly beautiful. At the end of the trail we saw a number of hikers going up the Grouse Grind although it is still closed. A good trail description/map is essential for this hike due to several odd turns and trail intersections. This section of BPT doesn’t have the wow factor of the first leg from Deep Cove, but was a lot less busy, was very pleasant and was a good transit hike.”
