Grouse Mtn to Lynn Headwaters is a segment of the
Baden-Powell trail that is technical and hilly. It
traverses the lower slopes of Grouse Mtn and Mt.
Fromme before winding down to Lynn Valley. If
you own the
Vancouver Trail Running book by Rich
Wheater, you can find info on this
We'll run the full 7.7km of the route. The highest
elevation we gain is 350m.
For those without the book, the route can be viewed
here: Baden Powell Lynn Canyon to Grouse
(*we are doing this in reverse - from Grouse to Lynn)
We'll aim for running the trail in 2 hours. Depending
on the fitness level of participants, we will go slower
Meeting place and start time:
7:45AM meet time
We'll meet at the base of Grouse Mountain ... around
where the Grouse grind starts.
|Recommended Items to Bring:|
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
Bring and wear
whatever you need to run comfortably for more than
This may include bringing a running vest or small
backpack to carry your water. If it's raining/snowing,
bring a shell jacket, hat and gloves. You may want to
carry a spare
shirt so you can change into them after running.
Maybe if it's icy,
bring Yak Trax or micro spikes.
|How to Get There:|
- Google Grouse Mountain (heh)
I expect we'll be hungry afterwards. We'll have
brunch after our run and then take transit back to
Grouse, where (I imagine) our cars will be parked.
(This part is TBD -- we may coordinate leaving one
car at Lynn so we all get driven back to Grouse and
avoid taking transit)
- We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines at all times while participating in ACC VA events.

Note: If you don't show up we will be very hurt!
