Mount Seymour Trail of the Snowy Mountain Trekking Route-Panergy
Vancouver is an outdoor paradise surrounded by mountains and sea. There are countless hiking trails with magnificent scenery around Vancouver, today we are going to introduce a classic trail that is perfect for winter snow hiking, Mount Seymour Trail in North Vancouver.
This snowy hike has three peaks in total, with a total length of 8.2 km round trip from the parking lot to the third peak and an elevation gain of 577 meters.
The difficulty rating is Difficult due to the steepness of the ascent and the repeated climbs and descents.
The list of hiking equipment and dressing options for the snowshoe hike are described at the end of this article.
Be sure to check the official Mount Seymour Park website for information before you prepare to go hiking to ensure that you can enter the park on the day of travel.
You will also need to apply for a Day Use Pass during the epidemic.
This snowy mountain hike is also very busy in winter and allows dogs to be brought along. You will also see a lot of skiers with their ski equipment on the trail.
The trees and rocks in the mountains are covered in snow.
It should be noted that after crossing Brockton Point, there are two routes to the summit of the first peak from the map, and the route to the right is obviously much longer, so we chose the shorter route to the left
Our first choice proved to be a mistake, as the left route was not clearly marked and the grade we climbed was quite steep (almost close to 60-70 degrees), we climbed to about 100 meters from the summit, and with snowshoe equipment and a bunch of camera equipment and tripods on our backs, we couldn't make it up.
The snow here is really too soft, a foot not solid, the whole person directly down the slide. Finally, I gave up this path, and returned to the right side of the long line with obvious signs, in order to honestly meander gently to the top.
The picture below shows us taking on the challenge of ascending a 60 degree snow slope.
