We spent a wonderful morning in Lighthouse park on the north side of the bay in Vancouver. Fantastic trails and walks through Old Growth Forest and stunning sea views. Go early to bag a parking spot - the car park is a decent size but not massive.

We enjoyed a few hours of hiking and walking in Lighthouse Park. It's a never-logged old growth forest with fabulous flora, terrain, and elevation changes. The lighthouse and interpretive displays are interesting. The rocky "beach" is fun to explore. The views of Vancouver (Downtown / Stanley Park / Lion's Gate Bridge / Point Grey) and Bowen Island / Howe Sound... More

We loved this park, a true oasis in the midst of the big city. There are park maps at the trail entrance. We took the Shore Pine Trail on the way down to the lighthouse viewpoint and the Valley Trail back. Gorgeous views toward downtown Vancouver at the end of the Shore Pine Trail. We liked the Valley Trail the... More

We spent an afternoon hiking all the trails at Lighthouse and really enjoyed this beautiful park. Finding it would have been a pain without a GPS as we aren't familiar with the area at all. Also, the parking lot isn't the greatest but we lucked out finding a spot (it seems like a very popular place, the parking lot was... More

Just wanted to share a few things before you head out to see the lighthouse. It can be a bit hard to find but our garmin got us there with no problems. When you arrive, you will be driving on a dirt road up to the entrance of a beautiful rain forest. We were the only ones out there at... More

The once and present lighthouse winks at all of the Lower Mainland but up close the Park is a lush and somewhat steep series of wooded trails leading to cliffs over Burrard Inlet. You can clamber down and swim or just enjoy the reward of the views. There are some historic buildings and it looks as though youth groups can... More

not a huge area but the hikes are varied and dogs are allowed which is a bonus. I hear the carpark has been resurfaced which is a good thing

Its a good place to do some hiking but there is not much to do besides that, sometimes you can take longer on a bus going there and returning to your place that in the park.

We visited this park with the kids so they could have some fun in the trees and on rocks. My 6-year-old started out whining that he hates hiking and ended up scaring me to death as he had a ton of fun jumping around on the rocks at West Beach. We enjoyed the main trail straight to the lighthouse and... More
