Brothers Creek Trail

Brother’s Creek trail starts in British Properties of West Vancouver. There are variants of this route – I will be showing my route. It was a nice day today – a little cold, but fine. We encountered snow a short time after starting and were soon punching through. The trail starts at the east end of Millstream Road. Beware of snow conditions even into early summer.

The stats:

Time: 2 hours
Distance: 7.8 km (return)
Low point: 375 m
High point: 828 m
Elevation gain: 453 m
Trailhead: 49° 21’ 27.3” by  123° 8’ 30” (Google Map)

Before heading out on your hike, make sure you are well prepared. This means, having the TEN ESSENTIALS. It is also important to leave a trip plan (route details and estimated return time) with someone you trust.

Bring your smartphone, fully charged and put it in airplane mode while hiking. I always bring back-up battery packs for extra piece of mind. It is highly recommended that you bring a GPS device; I use my smartphone with a GPS app (Backcountry Navigator). The GPS will work in airplane mode. Learn how to use it before your hike.

For anyone new to hiking, there is a rule to which hikers follow; it is called “Leave No Trace” or LNT. The concept is generally to pack out what you pack in and respect nature, so all future visitors can enjoy what you have enjoyed.
