Like Cypress Mountain (via Cypress Bowl Rd.) and Mount Seymour (via Mt. Seymour Road), what satisfies these criteria:

  1. They must be located within the following (demarcated) area: enter image description here

  2. My grandparents wish to drive upward to enjoy scenery at higher elevations. So local maxima, and not summits (i.e. global maxima), suffice.

  3. The roads must begin south of these mountains (e.g. West or North Vancouver, Coquitlam, Mission, Harrison Mills), to minimise driving time from Vancouver.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "Questions covering tasks normally performed by travel agents such as constructing travel and tour itineraries (including scheduling and budgeting) are off-topic. They are generally too specific to your personal preference, with many variables and possibilities, and are probably not helpful to others. See also The WANTA debate." – Giorgio, Ali Awan, JonathanReez

    Not by car, but you can get a cable car up Grouse mountain. – CMaster Aug 10 '16 at 8:27

    Another non-answer but Whistler/Blackcomb is not a long drive (maybe 90 minutes under good conditions) from Vancouver and has cable cars and a chair lift to the summit from the village during summer. Around $50 person, very scenic. – Spehro Pefhany Aug 12 '16 at 9:12

    @pnuts Yes, all of what is shown in the map. I removed the redundant copy. – Greek - Area 51 Proposal Nov 4 '16 at 15:03

    @pnuts Yes, elevated vantage point accessible by road vehicle. In fact, Cypress Bowl Rd. has a few of these. – Greek - Area 51 Proposal Nov 6 '16 at 2:27
  • Voting to close as WANTA as this request is too specific to be of much help for other travellers and "constructing itineraries" is head-on WANTA. – mts Nov 25 '16 at 22:27
