The Baden Powell trail is a 48km hike stretching from Deep Cove to Horseshoe Bay across Vancouver's North Shore. The trail is divided into four sections: Deep Cove to Lynn Valley, Lynn Valley to Grouse Mountain, Grouse Mountain to Cypress Mountain and then Cypress Mountain to Horseshoe Bay. The trails can be hiked in either direction. This part of the Baden Powell intersects with the start of the BCMC Trail and the Grouse Grind which you can add on and get to the top of Grouse Mountain. The trail also crosses mountain bike trails, but they are clearly marked and you won't get lost. This section of the Baden Powell is beautiful and a fun challenge.
