Once you wind your way up the mountain on the Cypress Parkway you arrive at numerous scenic outlooks and from any of these you have some of the best views of Stanley Park and Vancouver. Well worth the drive.

Hiked to Hollyburn Mountain on July 31, 2019, went up by the usual route, along the Baden Powell trail for the first 2 km and then on the Hollyburn Mountain trail to the summit. Trail was decent, though on the Baden Powell trail certain parts were flooded out and were a bit marshy, took a bit longer to reach summit than expected due to the amount of mud on the Baden Powell trail. On the Hollyburn Mountain trail it was better, and there were a few Monotropa uniflora (Ghost Plant) along the side of the trail, a rare sight to see so close to the city. The view from the summit was quite good, but on the return trip, as it was getting late, we decided to take a shorter path to descend according to Google, but the trail was actually an old, decommissioned trail that was extremely challenging to descend due to the steep sections and narrow trail. It was an interesting experience though, at the end of the decommissioned trail it joins up with the Collins ski run and to get onto Collins there was a bit of rock scrambling necessary. From the other reviews it seems like no one has taken the decommissioned trail and wrote about it, but if you are an experienced hiker and want a challenge then take the old trail down, it will be a good challenge.

We planned to snowshoe at Cypress Mountain Hollyburn trail but ended up not needing our snowshoes. The trails were hard packed snow so all we used were our poles for the slippery spots. Nice, clear day and not very many people. Very leisurely walk. Beware, someone did see a bear!

Went from Cypress parking lot to Hollyburn Peak. First bit is a bit of a steep gravel road, then flat gravel road, then (at the warming hut) you go left up through a meadow trail before heading up Hollyburn on a rock and root trail, and ending with a steep final push. Four-year old grandson made it with a few breaks and encouragements. Beautiful views.

The first and last kilometer or so we're the absouye worst as they were practically vertical. I'm a very new beginner and I had to take a lot of breaks. However everything in between was so much fun. Spectacular views and lots to explore. Round trip was about 2.5 hours and 5 km. Again, I'm a beginner and we took picture breaks. Worth it!
