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.

This is a Summer Review OK, first, as you drive up the twisting turning road that takes you to the top of Cypress Park you should be aware of the following: After you leave the highway, and take the Cypress Park Exit you will drive along until you get to: (1) The first hairpin (tight 180 degree) corner. This has... More

One of the top 10 places to go if you come to West Vancouver or the North Shore. I always bring my guests here the views are like no other of vancouver. It is a nice drive I will admit if you are not into hiking its a short trip but do take 1 hour out of your day and... More

a wilderness resort right on the edge of the city. Great place to hike in the summer and snowshoe in the winter. Glad there is no charge for parking.

Likes: fantastic scenic drive up to the mountain that takes you 2000 feet over the harbor. The roads really twist and turn while the trees on each side frame your drive. Once you get there you should get your camera out because this is what the west coast is about. Dislikes: not much to do if you're there in the... More

Went on July 3rd on what was supposed to be a warm sunny day in Vancouver. It was cloudy and cold up on Cypress. The temp in the parking lot read 13 degrees celcius and it felt like it. The hike is quite difficult and rocky for the first quarter. You basically walk up one side of the mountain and... More

We had a beautiful clear day for the drive. Definitely worth the trip. Have lots of room left on your memory card. If you have the panoramic function, this would be a place to use it.
