Get out and experience the Canadian great outdoors! The Dog Mountain Trail is a short, easy hike from Mount Seymour that offers a spectacular view of Vancouver on a clear day!

THIS IS AN EASY TO INTERMEDIATE HIKE! With over minimal gain in elevation gain and 5 kms roundtrip this hike in considered a short hike but a bit technical in some areas. Shoes/boots with good support are a must. We also suggest bringing enough water and snacks or a lunch! No sandals/Converse! We recommend fitness clothing (stretchy or quick dry hiking clothes) and would advise against jeans. Hiking poles are recommended but not required. This hike will take approximately 2 hours round trip which includes breaks and selfie stops. We recommend bringing a lunch for a picnic with a view at the top!

We will also be giving each attendee a small breakfast once we get to the hike!
