The 5,668-hectare LSCR contains spectacular and diverse landscapes. Its alpine meadows, forested slopes and river flood plains are within minutes of downtown Vancouver and are easily accessible from many areas in the Lower Mainland.
Harvesting plants and edibles such as, mushrooms, fiddleheads, salal, and moss is not allowed within the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve. Such activities can degrade natural resources. Help us conserve the biodiversity of this forest system and leave the plants untouched.
The amazing restored bridge is located just downstream of the Seymour Falls Dam, and connects the Spur 4 road to the trail network adjacent to the Seymour Fish Hatchery allowing for a 25km loop. Bike recommended. Bear Island Bridge LSCR Trail Map
All dogs on the Dog Mountain trail are required to be on-leash at all times. This supports Dog Mountain’s status as a sensitive sub-alpine ecosystem in the LSCR Management Plan. Furthermore, it aligns Metro Vancouvers’ dog rules with BC Parks’ in the surrounding area, and supports wildlife and public safety. Dog Mountain Map
Safety inspections of existing mountain bike structures on LSCR land are being conducted. Some mountain bike structures on popular LSCR trails (Ned’s, Dale’s, etc.) have reached their lifespan and may now present a safety hazard to users due to structural or surfacing deficiencies. Those structures deemed to be unsafe and beyond repair are being removed.
