“A challenging route from the Cleveland Dam rising to the amazing views of Hollyburn Peak.”— Paul Hiom
After you hit the tree line, the trail proceeds for another two kilometres. You'll cross two Fire Roads, at both continue to go uphill, and reenter the forest on the Baden Powell Trail West Vancouver. At about the four kilometre mark you'll see a turnoff for the Brothers Creek Trail. While you can continue up Baden-Powell, this trail is a worthwhile trip as it takes an alternate climbing route and is more scenic.
Climb the Brothers Creek Trail for about 2 kilometres, and right before the bridge take the left turn up the Blue Gentian Lake Trail. This trail will take you across a few creeks and around Blue Gentian Lake before returning you to the Baden Powell Trail. Climb the Baden Powell trail passing through a few clearings and you'll find yourself at the lower reaches of the cross country skiing area. Follow the Baden Powell trail past Hollyburn Lodge and the Cross Country Ski Chalet into the alpine area.
About two kilometres further along the trail, the Hollyburn Peak Trail branches off to the right. The trail is a climb, at times steep, for 2 kilometres up to the peak. Enjoy the views, and then return to your car by following the Baden Powell Trail West Vancouver for the full descent.
In total, this run is about 3850' or 1300 metres of elevation gain. If you don't want to complete the descent, either take Baden Powell trail west from the Hollyburn Peak turnoff to reach the downhill skiing lot, or return to Hollyburn Lodge and follow the signs from there to return to the Cross Country skiing parking lot.
