We enjoyed this hike - very easy (gradual uphill) with some nice views along the way. We did Dam mountain, then continued on & did Little Goat, then looped back using the alpine trail. It took us exactly 2 hours, and we were going at a slow, relaxed pace to enjoy the views.

Great bang for your buck if you have the Grouse annual pass (otherwise you'll have to walk up / down BCMC).

    This was a weird hike. Steep for most of the hike so not sure why it's listed as easy. Lots of flies that don't stop.
    The trail markers were not accurate or in the right spots.

      Hiked on July 5. Trail is snow-covered for at least half of hike, and trail markers are not up at the moment, making this more a difficult trail than typical. Bugs were ferocious, and wouldn't permit you to sit still for more than a minute. Would recommend waiting until at least mid July before trying. Views were very nice at the top, and I'm sure the heather meadows are pleasant when they are not covered by a foot and a half of snow.

        We tried to hike this trail with Crampons on May 20/2018.
        We only made it a bit over half way. The snow is much too soft for Crampons.
        Like Eagle Bluffs, which I reviewed last week, this one is snowshoe only for now.

          Went on Sunday, June 14. Trail condition is quite good, we only encountered a very short muddy section (less than 30 meters). We finished this trail quite fast, going up along Ridge Trail towards Dam Mountain and coming down the Alpine Trail. A decent portion of the trail is on the steep side, so coming back down was actually more difficult than going up (for us at least). Some mosquitoes were buzzing around, so bug repellent would be recommended.

          Trail has great views dispersed among the trees occasionally, and you definitely get a good bang for your buck for the short amount of time required to complete the trail. The view at the top of Dam Mountain was very beautiful. You get a panoramic view around you. Goat Mountain and Crown Mountain can also been seen off to one side. There were a lot of tall trees around as well though, so the panoramic view you get is a bit discontinuous due to the tall trees sprinkled here and there.

          Since Dam Mountain was a short hike, we had extra time in our day to go look at the resident rescued grizzly bears in their enclosed habitat on top of the Grouse Skyride. Also combined our hike with the Peak Chairlift, where we enjoyed a perfect view of all of Vancouver from above on this cloudless day.
