Mount Seymour Provincial Park
Extending around the 1453 m (4768 ft) Mount Seymour and almost on Vancouver's doorstep (8 km (5 mi.) north-east of North Vancouver; 15 km (9 mi.) north-east of the city center by Second Narrows Bridge), the 35 sq. km (13 sq. mi.) Mount Seymour Provincial Park is a popular skiing and recreation area criss-crossed by several trails. A winding but good road with frequent impressive views climbs to about 1000 m (3282 ft), from which point hiking trails continue to the summit and to some small karst lakes (more views). While raccoons, eagles and other birds of prey are relatively common the park's black bears are generally only encountered in remoter areas.
