Hike Quarry Rock
Canada › Quarry Rock Trailhead
Added by Christina Marchand
A quick hike with great views of Deep Cove and surrounding Vancouver.
Deep Cove is a cozy little town located at the base of Mt. Seymour, lying on the shores of the Indian Arm which is a branch of the Burrard Inlet in North Vancouver. In autumn, the tree-lined streets glow orange in the sunlight and the sailboats, kayakers and paddleboarders fill the harbour with quiet activity. It’s a very beautiful place to spend a sunny day, whether you’re out on the water, hiking the hills, or walking the streets.
The trailhead marks the beginning of the famous Baden Powell Trail and the Douglas Fir and Hemlock tree forest is thick, but light seeps through the trees highlighting the creeks and mountainside. It was a beautiful, and at times strenuous 45 plus minutes of climbing up and down, and back up again to get to Quarry Rock. The elevation is only 100 meters and you pass over four different creeks before you reach the huge rock overlooking the Indian Arm and mountains surrounding the community of Belcarra across the inlet. The view from Quarry Rock is phenomenal and I highly suggest checking out this hike if you’re ever in the area.
This is a very popular hike in the area and on sunny weekends, the trail is quite busy, full of families and hikers of all experience levels.
- Snacks or lunch to enjoy at the top is a great idea

Nice For A City Hike
This is a pretty short Hike outside of the city.. if you're looking for something more out in nature I wouldn't recommend it, its very busy in the summer and there are power lines in the view, but it is a beautiful view none the less! I was disappointed with how short it was.. but it's still a beautiful short hike if you don't mind hiking with huge crowds of people.

Growing up in northern BC meant that weekends & summers were spent finding new lakes, trails, & fun in the outdoors. Now, I get out exploring as much as I can with my husband and keeshond Harlie by my side. Loving life in beautiful, British Columbia, Canada.Follow
