Mount Seymour: September 4, 2010

Monday, September 6th, 2010

On Saturday, a friend and I did a little stroll up Mount Seymour. Left the parking lot at 2:20pm after paying just $3 for parking. Not really used to having to pay for parking when hiking, but still cheap and no worries! Also, I just got a new camera (Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS) and I had lots of fun taking photos up there! Really clear and beautiful shots!

Took just 1 hour and 15 minutes to get to the first pump peak. Great view from there! Possibly even better than the actual top of Mount Seymour.

Also, here’s a short video of the view from the first peak:

We continued on and took a break on top of the second pump peak, and then reached the Seymour peak at 4:28pm.

On the way back, we had lots of left over energy so we jogged down the ski-hill area.

Some really fun terrain up around the fist pump peak and beyond, but lots and lots of people up there. Great to see people being active, but I like being a bit more alone with wilderness when I’m hiking. Overall, a nice little 11km stroll to keep the muscles warm! Took just 3.5 hours round trip.

Stats and graphs from my phone’s GPS app:

Here’s the GPS track on Google Maps:

Would love to continue out to Elsay Lake sometime! Does anyone know of any trails that continue out even further from there?
