Directions from Whistler to Grouse Mtn.+

Last minute thought of driving rental car from Whistler back to Vancouver but stopping at Grouse Mtn. , Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge and possibly Lonsdale Quay before heading back to West. Georgia Street. Can you help me with driving directions please? Thanks.

Once you have come down to Horseshoe Bay, continue on the Upper Levels Hwy 1 / Hwy 99 to Capilano Road, Exit 14. Exit the highway and do the "cloverleaf" on to Capilano Road northbound. Head on up the mountain. Cap Susp Bridge is on the map following, just south of where Edgemont intersects Cap Rd., Grouse is Balloon B.

Are you just going up Grouse for the view? Or for the other attractions up there? The reason why I ask is because you can get essentially the same view for free on neighbouring mountain peak, Cypress. Cypress Bowl Road is an exit off of Hwy 1. There's a little lookout that you can drive up - it's about a 10 minute detour up the mountain, but if all you want is the view, don't bother spending the $30+ per person for Grouse unless you really want to spend several hours up there. Just thought I'd throw that out since you have a car, and since you asked for Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge (the free alternative to Capilano Suspension Bridge). Lynn Canyon is only a short drive further down the Hwy 1 after Cypress.

Sorry, I completely missed that you want to go to Lynn Canyon. Here's the route "across the top" of the mountain from Grouse to Lynn Canyon Park. This would save you driving all the way down the mountain, across, and then up another road.

And here's how to get from LCP down to Lonsdale Quay. If you go down Chesterfield right to Carrie Cates Court, then turn east, you will line up nicely for the underground parking to Lonsdale Quay.

Zoom the maps for details.
