Many trails. Could spend days getting around to all of them. We went to Wreck Beach. We rook #7 trail down the many stairs and then walked along the seashore trail to Wreck Beach itself at #8. If you take this route, the trail is fairly rough and you have to be prepared to go up and down a lot... More

Great walking trails and biking trails. Make sure you get a map of the trails, though. We got lost once and ended up a couple of miles away from our vehicle!

One minute you're on the road and five steps later you're in the middle of the forest. You can stroll, cycle or run on the trails through this beautiful space. When you look at the height and imagine the age of these giant trees you realize how tiny and temporary we humans are. This is a great place for families... More

Such a relief it was when I found the little track off the beach, to get into the shade of those high trees! Slightly shattered from walking along Jericho and Spanish beaches this scorching day, climbing the steps up, up, up was no struggle. Little plaques explained about preserving what used to be the nature all around, before the houses... More

I have walked or run all of the trails over the past 20 years, and have favorite spots to commune with nature. The forest is full of birds (owls, woodpeckers being the most spectacular) and stands of tall trees that sway in the wind as rays of sunlight percolate the canopy.

Pacific Spirit was cut out from the extensive University (of British Columbia) Endowment Lands, a huge area comprising the whole tip of the Point Grey Peninsula which had already been logged and deemed of little value by the Province and which was given to UBC to set up their Campus back in 1906 or thereabouts. UBC recently returned the Pacific... More

Enjoyed the natural beauty on a clear, sunny fall day during a one and half hour hike through some of the trails. The mosses, ferns, trees, water and fauna are beautiful. The trails were being enjoyed by walkers, joggers and dogs.

Beautiful and well-kept trails, lots of off-leash areas. This park is one of the best in Vancouver, easy to spend a few hours, rain or shine.

Lots of trails to do and access to the fantastic Wreck beach. Cyclists, drivers, campers, hikers - enjoy. If you get tired of it, there's a bus back via Marine drive.

Staying in West Point Grey

Neighborhood Profile
West Point Grey
West Point Grey is one of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods, especially known for its easygoing and admired beachfronts. Locals crowd the Spanish Banks and Jericho Beach, especially in the summer, where a sprawling view of the English Bay awaits. The central village is an oasis of sovereign shops, many of them in local operation for years. The neighbourhood has a more personal feeling to it, and can be a wonderful and much-needed break from the bustle of big-city life, being a little haven of peace and quiet with an almost village temperament in the heart of Vancouver.
