Trans Canada Trail/Nelson Creek Loop Professional Review and Guide
"If you have traversed the Seaview Walk east from Horseshoe Bay, you have already sampled the most westerly mainland section of the Trans Canada Trail. Now comes the next, more demanding part, which starts you off on the trail’s upsy-downsy march across the face of the North Shore mountains.Start by driving north off Marine Drive on Cranley Drive to the trailhead at Nelson Creek. On foot you cross the creek and rise to the Seaview Walk, where you turn right and immediately mount to a vantage point above Nelson Creek canyon. Then you continue to ascend, passing under the present Upper Levels Highway to reach the roadbed of its predecessor. Here you may enjoy a brief respite as you cross the 1956-vintage bridge with a view down Nelson Creek under the viaduct."
