To really appreciate this hike, it must be done on a blue sky day or as a winter snow shoe. Walk past the Dog Mountain trail sign post on the left side. The trail starts here as it winds along a rocky trail that has a gentle incline. As you walk half way up the trail you'll see a memorial for Tim Jones, who was with North Shore Search and Rescue as a volunteer for 26 years. He saved many hikers who went into the back country ill prepared. Please take a moment to say, thanks!
The trail emerges onto a rocky road, turn left and follow the road as it climbs for about 100 meters. You will come to a road on your right; keep going until you see the trail on your left. There's a small lake on your right...follow the trail down and right away it begins to climb.
Soon you’ll arrive at a rocky bluff. Your eyes will be treated to views of Golden Ears, Eagle Mountain, Robbie Reed and Alouette Mtn. Continue on down the rocky bluff to the left as the trail descends a bit over some larger rocks.
Soon after another junction to Elsay Lake and Mount Seymour. Go left to Mount Seymour. Now the trail gets steeper and rockier. Keep climbing. The trail will break into a little meadow and a tarn on your left. Your summit is now in sight. After this last section you break out a big rocky outcrop with many rocks to choose. There’s a summit post here on the tallest rock. There is the option of carrying on to Tim Jones Peak & Third Peak. Once you've soaked in the views head back the way you came. Happy and safe trails.
