Howe Sound Crest Trail Safety Video
General Information

This BC AdventureSmart trail specific safety video is all about the Howe Sound Crest Trail in West Vancouver, BC.

The Howe Sound Crest trail is one of the most challenging trails in the North Shore mountains.

Although this trail starts in close proximity to the city, it’s important to remember that you will be venturing deep into the backcountry and up into the exposed alpine where snow and severe weather is common well into the summer.

This trail sees a large number of avoidable injuries, and search and rescues, each spring and summer.

The British Columbia Search and Rescue Association supported this initiative.
