Completed my goal for the summer on the last possible day Sept 21, 2014. Lion's Gate bridge to West Lion to Lion's Gate bridge. This is near Vancouver, British Columbia.
Start at the base of the lions gate bridge (sea level) at SE corner of Park Royal Shopping Center next to the Capilano river, there is a trail head which leads up the west side of capilano canyon to the baden powell trail near the dam. Take the baden powell to cypress bowl ski area, then on to the howe sound crest trail to the base of the west lion (base @ 5200ft). Return via same route.
50km, 9 hr 25 min. I had a cache of food and water that I left at cypress bowl - out and return makes this easy. Basically a really great 30k trail run (ocean to cypress bowl) with a 20k hike in the middle of it! Amazing views.
