The First Lake Trail is located in the Mount Seymour Provincial Park, immediately adjacent to the Mount Seymour Ski Resort. While just a short little trip, the trail is nicely nestled into the mountainside, giving the hiker/snowshoer the illusion of being much farther away from the city than they actually are!
Great for first-time snowshoers, or people just looking for a quick break in the forest.
Drive up the Mount Seymour access road, and park as close to the end of the parking lot as possible. Hike past the Seymour Provincial Park info kiosk/pagoda, and head up the trail on the far left of the ski runs. Look or the sign indicating the trailhead about 100m up this path. Either start here or continue up the trail parallelling the ski run for another ~400m to the next junction, where the 1st Lake Trail joins yet again.

QuestionI would like to try this hike this fall, and perhaps again in the winter as a snowshoeing activity - my concern is the weather factor. We get a lot of rain this time of year and I am wondering what might start as a nice day may turn into a rainy day - is this particular train very steep or slippery?ANSWERS are in this forum: Weather Safety

UpsideNice easy walk for first time snow shoe'ers and kids DownsideNone CommentWas a nice walk, the kids (8 & 11) did well, some steepish up hill climbs but they are troopers. Great way to start spring break. My Garmin 60CSx said it was actually 2.7 km, but we did a small side track to check out the 'snow-cave/igloo' someone built. When at the lake, cross the bridge towards Dog Mountain, about 30-50m along, look carefully on your left for the small entrance. Will try and upload a GPS track you can see the short side track to the igloo. We did it in slightly less than 2 hours including stopping for lunch along the way.
