Hiking Dog Mountain (Seymour)

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

Since today was BC Day, I found I had an extra day to get a few things done.  Among the list was a trip downtown, so I figured what the heck – let’s do a short little hike out that direction.  It was a little bit of a double back from downtown, but I had a nice lunch down at Deep Cove anyways.  Sheena happened to be coming back from Squamish perfectly with all her gear and such from climbing and camping this weekend so I got her the phone and she was keen to come on out and get some more exercise!

I had heard from my uncle that this short and easy hike had a really nice view of Vancouver – and it didn’t disappoint.  However, today was a little overcast so it was a little hard to see.  You can check out my photos here:

For a total of a 5km hike, with just a few ups and downs (no real elevation gain at all), this was a great little hike. The terrain kept going up and down evenly, and there were a ton of roots all over the ground.  We saw a lot of small children, dogs, and families.  Not my usual cup of tea, but it would be one I’d start getting someone into hiking with!

I christened my awesome new real Swiss Army Knife (a gift from Harley – thank you!) up there by using it to open a Heineken that I carried up there!
