SUMMARY: A popular short hike from the Grouse Mountain Chalet to the bump just west of Grouse Mountain. The return trip takes less than two hours. Walk past the Grizzly bear enclosure and then onto the old road on the west side of Grouse Peak. After about 500 m the road ends and a good trail heads up through some big trees and switchbacks to the "peak". The trail continues on to Goat and Crown mountains. Snow can linger until July some years. Snowshoers should be careful on icy days since there are some steep slopes along the trail.create

Quick trip up to the top of Dam Mountain and back to the Chalet via the loop. Although overcast with a bit of a brooding sky, the views were still amazing. Warmer than it has been for most of the season, at just above zero - enough for the snow to be coming off the trees in large chunks (had to be careful!). Took just under 2 hours to complete.
