Trail Description
Located just north of Vancouver, BC; the well known Baden Powell trail is named after Lord Baden-Powell in honor of British Columbia's 100th anniversary as a Canadian province and founder of the Scouting movement. Much of the trail was originally laid by Boy Scouts and Girl Guides. The Baden Powell trail traverses the North Shore from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver and passes through several familiar North Vancouver sites from the base of Grouse Grind, Lynn Canyon, Quarry Rock, Eagle Bluff, Black Mountain and Cypress Bowl to name a few. If you plan on hiking the whole trail, expect a full day hike, an overnight or you may need to consider trying one segment at a time.

This trail is not easy by any standard and starting well prepared, hydrated and with enough food, water and supplies to last. At times, the Baden Powell Trail crosses or combines with other trails such as the Trans Canada. If you're not alert and paying attention to the correct trail markers, it's possible to become disoriented and end up on the wrong trail. If you are attempting to cross the entire trail in one day, it's recommended to start very early in the day and in the mid-Summer for maximum daylight hours.
