Always a favouriteof ours over the years as the kids grew up in Lynn Valley North Vancouver, nice sunset viewing, great to watch the English Bay fireworks, with out travelling across the Lions gate, and trying to get a parking spot in English Bay which is impossible.

Cypress Provincial Park is one of the things that I love the most about Canada, more specifically, Vancouver. You can get unparalleled views of Mother Nature, just a short drive away from the city. Never been here in Summer but in winter it is great. Despite the crowds of people, it was extremely peaceful and picturesque. We took a hike... More

Visiting Vancouver in winter, all you want is to be able to drive 20 minutes and experience true mountain-top snow, skiing, and snow-shoeing in beautiful surroundings. Welcome to Cypress. It's a short drive from Vancouver and unlike at Grouse where you arrive by a [picturesque gondola but have top pay to access even the basic facilities, here you can drive... More

TripAdvisor's map shows the location of Cypress Falls park , which is outside of the Provincial Park. The falls trail starts just off of Woodgreen Place ,a short street which is a right turn off of Woodgreen Drive . There is a parking lot near some tennis courts but go a little further and look on the left . There... More

Half way up to the Cypress Mountain Bowl there is an area to park yourself and take a breather. I'm amazed at the number of bikers that pump there way up to this level. The trip down would be more to my liking. The picnic area is a great place to spend a few hours on a nice clear day.... More

An intermediate hiking trail 8 km long and will take around 4 hours to complete. The view at the bluff is spectacular. One can see the City of Vancouver, West Vancouver and the Pacific Ocean. En-route to the bluff, are many beautiful little lakes and streams. The elevation gain is about 350 meters ( 1150 feet ) however it is... More

Rented a road bike from Spokes near Stanley Park and rode up Mt Seymour and then Cypress Mountain before returning to Stanley Park. You get a great view of the city from Cypress but as a roadie, these two climbs are superb! Nice wide lanes, smooth tarmac, not too steep makes descents incredibly fun! Only thing is the Cypress climb... More

We took the trail to St.Marks. One of the harder hike we've been on. My companion has a weak knee, nonetheless it took us longer than we expected to finish the loop (6 hrs, with a 40 min stop at Bowman lookout and the summit). The view at St. Marks is very nice. Some paths are very treacherous, in fact... More

Once you leave the highway, about 200 meters is the first really tight corner (hairpin corner), then about 300-400 meters further up is another tight corner with a parking area and an amazing view of the city of Vancouver. Worth a few pictures. At the top there is a place to buy a drink or food, as well as some... More

Time away from the downtown experience. Short drive to nature with great City views. Many waterfalls, fresh air, etc. After hiking all day in City/Stanley Park, visiting Cypress provided a chance to see what British Columbia beyond Vancouver is like - beautiful forest.
