Quarry Rock- Hiking Trail Information
Quarry Rock Trail Map
A quick linear leg of the Baden Powell Trail in Deep Cove, Quarry Rock is a Vancouver-fave for a little Shinrin-yoku. It’s easy to find—just stop the car at Panorama Park and walk further along Panorama Drive to the trailhead. Or follow the crowds—notoriously busy, go before 9:00 a.m. on weekends for the best experience. Most reasonably active pups (and people) can manage this stroll—a short stair-climb leads to an undulating forested path and finishes at the namesake rock with expansive views over Indian Arm and east.
Weave through dense forest, cross creeks on wooden bridges and plop out on top of a smooth rock surface for gorgeous views of Deep Cove and the Indian Arm. Although there are some steep and rocky sections, this trek can be completed by nearly every level of hiker. Stop in at Honey's Doughnuts for a mouth-watering trail treat to enjoy with those views.
