hike: quarry rock

No comments

The weather forecast warned of thunderstorms and torrential downpours, so being the typical Vancouverite I seem to have become, it seemed like the ideal weather for a hike. It was actually dry and sunny on the entire drive out to Deep Cove, until the last ten minutes saw hail and wild winds and heavy rain. Woops.

I waited out the heaviest part of the showers under a nearby cafe overhang until deciding that the rain was bearable after which I made my way through the beach park to the Baden Powell trail head.

Given the weather, the trail wasn’t very busy. In the summertime, this place is absolutely teeming with people as it’s a relatively easy trail and is very well marked. The trip to the top takes 20-25 minutes if you’re going at a speedy and steady pace, so it’s ideal for a quick morning workout.

The rain stopped just as I arrived at the lookout, and I reckon that battling the elements was well worth it. You can either turn back down here, but I continued along the Baden Powell trail towards Lynn Valley.
