Hiking mount Seymour can obviously be done in the spring and summer, but if you enjoy a nice sunny hike in the snow, you should definitely give it a try during the winter time.You can either hike it with micro spikes, or snow shoes, depending on your fitness level and the amount of snow when you go.

Driving to Mount Seymour is very easy. Located between Vancouver and Deep Cove, BC. Even during the dead of winter the road to the top is well taken care of and you won't need chains to get to the resort.

Once you arrive at the top you can park your vehicle on the huge parking lot, use the heated restrooms for a quick stop before you hike to the first peak.

Whether you are a hiker, trail runner, or just enjoy a nice snow shoe adventure, you will enjoy Mount Seymour.

You will get to hike amongst the trees for a while, and around a couple of snow covered lakes before you start hiking up.

The way up is fairly steep, but if you have micro spikes or snow shoes, you should be totally fine. One the way, you will go through a couple of very nice view points, looking east, and after hiking for about 60 to 90 minutes, you will reach the first peak.

There, you can either decide to keep pushing and go toward the 2nd and 3rd peak or you can just find a nice spot to relax, take a break and even enjoy a nice picnic overlooking Vancouver. The view extends all the way from East to West, and on a clear day, you can see Washington State and Mount Baker in the distance.

It is quite incredible up there.

Great reward for medium effort.

I strongly recommend it.
