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.
