This walk, with virtually no climbing involved despite its title, takes you from the top parking area in Mount Seymour Provincial Park to a point overlooking the Seymour River, one that gives breathtaking views of Vancouver and its sister municipalities to the south and west, of Mount Garibaldi and Mamquam Mountain to the north, while Mount Baker provides a majestic backdrop to the eastern Fraser Valley. The trail itself is pleasant also, lying in open forest for much of its length and interrupted only by First Lake, set in its subalpine meadow.

What is not mentioned in the trail description is the trail, while rated "easy", is made more challenging due to the exposed roots and boulders that cross, and form, the trail. You spend a fair amount of time looking at your feet, when walking. Some high stepping is required. (But then my partner's past hiking experience has been along more even grade trails.)
