Golden Ears is the highpoint of the divide between Gold Creek and Pitt Lake in Golden Ears Provincial Park. It's a popular destination for local hikers, probably because the Golden Ears massif with its multiple summits is visible from almost anywhere around Vancouver and the lower Fraser Valley. From Gold Creek, a trail with 1500 m elevation gain leads to its summit. (description courtesy of
