Beautiful, but...

This review is more of a warning than an actual review. Don't get me wrong, the park is absolutely beautiful. It's a wonderful place to explore. BUT BEWARE OF THE NUDE BEACH! Oh... read more

This review is more of a warning than an actual review. Don't get me wrong, the park is absolutely beautiful. It's a wonderful place to explore. BUT BEWARE OF THE NUDE BEACH!

What a great place to spend a quiet and peaceful time walking, running or biking through the woods. Just fantastic.

It's hard to believe you're in the city once you step foot into this park. The trails are endless and well used. You will encounter a lot of mountain bikes on many of the trails as well as people out walking their dogs. You can spend hours riding in here and not take the same trail twice.

This park is located within the University Endowment Lands (UEL) and the West Point Grey neighborhood and consists of about 3.5 square miles of natural wilderness.

Because it is raining at the time of visit, we did not really see the whole place but we enjoyed and appreciated what we saw. It is very unfortunate however, the weather did not cooperate with us so we can totally enjoy and visit the whole park. Dislike weather that we cannot change.

Love walking, running or biking in these trails. Very well maintained and easy to get around. Only complaint from my experience is that many people do not have dogs on leashes which is a bit tricky when biking. Minimal elevation gains so if looking for lot of climb this is not the trail for you - good for young families... More

I am on the trails several times a month and I am always awed and inspired by its beauty, tranquility, variety and size. There is so much to see and the walks are both healing and invigorating.

Vancouver is so lucky to have this huge area of forest so close within the city limits. It has a big network of well graded paths which are well signposted. Even on a rainy day (and you get plenty of those in Vancouver!), it is worth taking a lovely long walk under the trees. Easy to get too as well... More

I biked through this beast. It's a big park, feels spooky by yourself. Just be careful if you are going alone. Not a lot of people use the deep trails. Surrounding UBC and the beaches are great.

Vancouver is about getting outside - rain or shine. This convenient park boasts many generally easy trails which accommodate walkers, joggers, bikes and horses - yes, horses! Some are shared trails but there are some just for walkers and joggers as well as ones where dogs aren't allowed. Free parking available near all of the park's many entrances. From the... More
