Felt like fall Vancouver hiking today with some misty rain and low fog in the trees on Grouse. We went up McKay from the Powerline trail, exploring the old cabin sites as we went. It's as steep and relentless and the rest of Grouse but minus the crowds. On to Simic's trail with its chiseled rock markers and up to the Chalet. Saving the Skyride cheat for darker days, we then came down on a combo of BCMC, Larsen and the Baden Powell. A good few hours out!
