Length: 4.2 km
Condition: Rough, bushy, very steep, short swampy sections
General Route: The trail follows the south side of Norvan Cr. then briefly crosses to the north before ascending to the ridge NE of Norvan Pass, then follows the SE ridge to the summit of Coliseum.
How to Find: To find this trail, hike up the Lynn Valley Trail almost to the bridge over Norvan Creek. Just before the bridge, look for a trail going up Norvan creek, signed as the Coliseum Mountain Route.
Trail Description: First section of the trail is very steep, and somewhat eroded. Trail eventually flattens out and crosses two small creeks by descending into minor ravines. Contours parallel to Norvan Creek before crossing a final small creek in an open bushy area. Crosses to the north side of Norvan Creek for a short time before crossing back to the south side of a tributary and climbing to the SE ridge of Coliseum. Trail turns north and follows along the ridge (mostly to the west side) through the subalpine. Just after the junction with the Paton Lookout Trail there is a short scrambling section. The final stretch contours over open granite terrain to the summit. From Coliseum there is a general route that continues on to Mount Burwell.
