Backcountry trails in Lynn Headwaters Regional Park have been closed for the season, according to Metro Vancouver. The closure, which took effect this week, applies to routes in the Grouse subalpine area north of Dam Mountain and Thunderbird Ridge (including Crown Mountain, Goat Mountain, Little Goat and Goat Ridge) as well as to routes beyond Norvan Falls including the Hanes Valley, Coliseum Mountain and Lynn Lake.
In the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve, Dog Mountain remains open. The CBC Trail on Mount Seymour will likely close in late November when the snow begins to accumulate, said Metro Vancouver spokesman Greg Valou
Also worth noting: the Skyride at Grouse Mountain is closed this week and next, from Oct. 28 to Nov. 8. Metro Vancouver is warning hikers that if they ascend the Grouse Grind Trail or BCMC Route, the only way down is via the BCMC Route. Hiking down the Grouse Grind Trail is not allowed. Hikers should add an extra two hours to their trip, said Valou, and note that the BCMC gate closes at 1 p.m. daily.
