Corey Rock

I had recently been told about a good trail to a view-point overlooking Deep Cove and so on this sunny Wednesday we decided to try it out.

You start by taking the Baden Powell Trail (which extends from Deep Cove all the way to Horsehoe Bay) and shortly before it's intersection with Indian River Drive you reach Corey Rock.

Parking in Deep Cove we enjoyed good views across the marina

More views of Indian Arm

The trail winds quite steeply to begin with up into the forest.

Lots of dappled sunlight through the trees

Looking over Panorama Creek from the bridge over it.

Tumbling water in Panorama Creek

A brief piece of video of Charlie and Panorama Creek.

Approaching another bridge over another creek. We must have crossed 10 or 11 creeks at least on our way up.

Bridges are always good for a quick photo stop

Don't know what Charlie's grinning for, there's plenty more uphill to go yet !

So we reach the Corey Rock look out. Views to the North through the trees.

View South overlooking Deep Cove village and the marina

View South East towards the city of Port Moody.

Views North East over Indian Arm towards the villages of Anmore and Belcarra.

Another quick piece of video giving the panorama view from Corey Rock

On the way back down, another creek means another drinking opportunity

Views across a creek and through the forest

Back in Deep Cove village another view across Indian Arm

Finally, a view North out of the village to the peninsula with the rocky outcrop which is Corey Rock.

A terrific walk to enjoy on a sunny day and probably great on a warm summers day as there are plenty of creeks for Charlie.
