This trail which ascends to the summit of Mount Hollyburn in Cypress Provincial Park is popular in both Winter and Summer.
Route: Runs up to Hollyburn just west of the groomed run.
How to Find: From Vancouver, drive up the Cypress Bowl Road, then turn into the cross country area.
Trail Description: This trail provides access to Hollyburn without going on the groomed trails. It is free. It is heavily used by people on snowshoes. From the parking area, climb over the snowbank and follow the trail up just to the west of the wide open area under the power lines (which is the groomed area). The trail climbs a little hill, then turns east, and goes down a small hill, then runs south of some tiny lakes. It then swings north and goes up through the trees, emerging just beside the groomed trail at one point. Eventually it merges with the wide open swath at the upper end of the groomed area. Then you can continue on up the steep slope to the summit. There will almost always be tracks, and a beaten trail in the snow.
