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.

Went up the mountain at night to grab a quick night photograph. Safe place and a very nice lookout. One of the best places we found to escape the city. I would go back in a heart beat. Great place to talk. Bring a coffee or hot chocolate depending on the time you go up.

The drive up is tricking with current road repairs. There is a great view point part way up. At the top, the mountains are so beautiful. Parking is plentiful in the off season. Hiking trails abound. Such a nice place to spend the day. Fun to see the Olympic rings.

Panaromic views, short hikes or extended back-country trips Cypress Provincial Park offers it all. Visitors can simply drive up to the lodge enjoying numerous viewpoints and lookouts along the way, or you can pack your back pack and tackle the Howe Sound Crest Trail to Porteau Cove. Numerous trails begin at the day lodge and offer a wide variety for... More

We went on a glorious sunny day in mid-July for a day-hike to Eagle Bluffs, just after Black Mountain. Start from the last parking lot in the park. The first stretch up a gravelly path along the ski lift was a little dusty but some of the glimpses of the mountain views already impressive. Take a dip in Cabin Lake,... More

The views as you travel up toward the mountain and down again are beautiful and we really enjoyed the snowshoeing.
