    Directions to Trailhead

    The Dinky Peak Trail is a less-travelled path in Mount Seymour Provincial Park, partly because it can be tricky to find! Nestled in between two other paths, this trail takes you on a loop to two separate vantage points, First Lake Overlook and Dinky Peak. This is a great hike if you are looking for a quick outing or are looking to do a few trails in one day.

    Route Description for Dinky Peak Trail

    The Dinky Peak Trail is a short 2.4 km loop trail in Mount Seymour Provincial Park that can be tricky to find if you aren’t paying attention but offers some great views from two different vantage points. Bring microspikes or snowshoes if using the route early/late in the season, as the trail will likely be covered in a layer of snow and ice.

    The trailhead is hidden in the junction between the trails for Dog Mountain and Mount Seymour, and is noticeable because it is less worn than the other two. Follow the trail up to the First Lake Overlook before looping around to the summit of Dinky Peak for some stunning southeasterly views. Finish off the loop and head back down to the parking lot, or tackle one of the other trails within the park.

    Getting to the Dinky Peak Trail Trailhead

    To get to the Dinky Peak trailhead from Vancouver, follow the Trans Canada Highway/BC-1 West and cross over the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge. Take exit 22B for the Mount Seymour Parkway, following it for 7.0 km, before turning left onto Mount Seymour Rd. Travel north for another 13.0 km, and you will soon arrive at the parking area.
