This month’s mini-adventure will take place on the Sea to Summit Trail on Sunday, July 16th. Previous experience is not required and the invitation is open to anyone and everyone, so feel free to bring friends and family along, just keep in mind this is classified as an intermediate to advanced hike.

  • Meeting Location: We will be meeting in the Sea to Sky Gondola parking lot.
  • Parking: Parking will be in the Sea to Sky Gondola parking lot.

Trail Information:

  • Distance: 7.5 km one way
  • Estimated time: 3 - 5 hours
  • Elevation Gain: 918 m
  • Level of difficulty: Intermediate/Advanced. Some steep & challenging sections. Requires fixed rope lines to assist you at certain sections. Not recommended for downhill travel. For hikers with dogs, you may need to assist your dog at some of the steeper steps (step heights of roughly 3 feet).

Dogs: As a courtesy to other hikers, please keep your dog on a leash. There are some visitors who are uncomfortable around dogs, especially the ones who run up to them, off-leash. In the past, dogs off-leash have knocked hikers while passing and we hope to minimize that risk. Please be considerate, thank you!

Trail description: Starting from the Sea to Sky Gondola parking lot, the Sea to Summit Trail rises through the lower sections of the Stawamus Chief trail and eventually diverts onto the full Sea to Summit Trail, up what was once an inaccessible route through beautiful forest to the top of the Sea to Sky Gondola. Views of Howe Sound, Sky Pilot and the surrounding peaks are abound throughout. A three to five hour intermediate/advanced climbing hike just over 900 metres, the Sea to Summit Trail is definitely a must-do.
