Hike Description

Hike Description


Quarry Rock is a short hike located in Deep Cove, just outside of North Vancouver. It's short distance, manageable trail, and rewarding view of the Indian Arm fjord makes it a favorite among many. This trail is fairly popular and can often be extremely busy during the summer and weekends. Most of the vertical is hiked during the first half of the trail, leaving a somewhat leisurely stroll through the woods for the second half. Quarry Rock is the main look out, a great place to look down onto the small town of Deep Cove and watch boats go by. If you keep hiking a few minutes north from Quarry Rock you'll find a transmission line and another lookout hosting an equally impressive view.
