While Squamish calls itself the "Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada", the municipality could also market itself as a destination for fans of Dr. Seuss.

You are watching: What mountain does the grinch live on

In How The Grinch Stole Christmas, the author writes:

Three thousand feet up! Up the side of Mt. Crumpit, He rode with his load to the tiptop to dump it!

Well, the Mount Crumpit in B.C."s version of Whoville is just over 1,000 feet high, but it would make for a great holiday-season hike (trail map and GPS device recommended). 

Recently, I revisited the mountain-bike/dirt-bike trails of Crumpit Woods to do a 10-kilometre hiking loop covering Mount Co-Crumpit, Crumpit (spelled incorrectly like the delicious griddle cakes on trail signs), Five Point Hill, Meet Your Maker, and Cougar Ridge.

From the Raven"s Plateau subdivision, it only took about one hour and 45 minutes to reach the top of Mount Crumpit via the Deep Ends trail. The entire loop clocked in at almost seven hours in total, and featured some steep and scrambly bits.
