Burnaby Mountain Hike

A friend suggested we climb the 500 steps up Burnaby Mountain to the park perched above. As we ascended, a view of Burrard Inlet peeked through the trees.

Ten years back, some 300 hectares was set aside as a reserve below Simon Fraser University where trails led around and up the mountain.

The real reward was at the top where North Vancouver’s Deep Cove sat nestled on the other side of the inlet; Belcarra’s Admiralty Point a little closer. To the west, the squared matrix of Burnaby and Vancouver Cities were silent.
