Starts with a crossing of the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge and heads through an area that can be quite muddy and sections of dense tree roots. You will come out and cross Lillooet Rd and enjoy some downhill and an open landscape before starting a long winding climb that becomes quite steep for the last third until you reach the peak at around the 8km mark. It is then almost all downhill to Deep Cove with some steepish descents, but mostly a perfect decline for jogging. Save some energy just after the rocky outlook at Deep Cove (which is very popular so expect a lot of people on the track for this last section) as there are some steep inclines getting back up and down to Deep Cove. You'd be crazy not to stop for Donuts in Deep Cove!

CommentA great new feature for this trail: as of September 2014, there is a trail in the woods parallel to Indian River road, such that hikers no longer have to walk on the road for the 500 m stretch.

UpsideGreat hike. Did it from Lynn canyon to deep cove. As it appears a little easier. The ascents are more direct and not long and gradual. DownsideNot much for views as it is all in the forest. CommentDid this with a six, four and two year old. It took us 5 hours to complete. I recommend warming up on other smaller trails first before you tackle this one with kids. It can be hard on the little guys.

UpsideNice view of deep cove at the beginning and falls. Not too much ascent. DownsideNo other views since the beginning one. CommentDid it today from deep cove to Lynn canyon. Weather was bad. Wet snow in the last hour but didnt stop me. Had no choice anyway, had to finish it. Will do Lynn canyon to grouse also this week.
