Vicar Lakes trail map
Take the Mt Seymour Parkway Exit from Hwy 1 in North Vancouver, at the north end of the second narrows bridge. Continue straight onto Lillooet Road for about 5 km. The road ends at the Rice Lake Gate and its parking lot. You are in the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve.
This trail is usually done as a bike/hike. There is about 2.8km bike ride to get to the trailhead. You have two options. The second option is the best one.
1- Seymour Valley Trailway: Bike to the end of the paved road (10Km) and cross Seymour River (bring sandals) at Dear Creek Bridge. On the other side, there is a short trail which takes you up to the Eastside Seymour Mainline, where you turn left. Seymour River can be high and not passable.
2- East Seymour Mainline: Bike along Seymour Valley Trailway and turn right on Hydraulic Connector (at about 5.2Km), cross Spur 4 Bridge over Seymour River, and then turn left into East Seymour. The trailhead is at about 12.4Km marker and is marked well. East Seymour Mainline is an unpaved road but it is in good condition exepct a small section in the middle.
A few minutes from the trailhead, don't miss on the General and the General's Wife, two giant cedar trees. The trail is steep and bushy but well marked and there are several fixed ropes along the way. The trail eventually levels and goes through 3 different pounds and Vicar Lake from which Mt Bishop is in view. From this area you may find access routes to Mt. Bishop and the Indian Arm trail.
