Description

Paton Peak is a 5 km round trip hike to what was formally known as Vancouver's Lookout.

It is access via a logging spur at the 9.5 km mark of the Seymour Demonstration forest by foot, bike, or other non motorized modes of transportation.

We biked it with packs loaded with avalanche gear and snowshoes / ice axes.

Peak is only at 1020m elevation, but the snow was 2.5m deep at the summit.

4.5 hours round trip with some difficult navigation in places in the deep snow.
