You won't find many hiking trails better than this one, right in the middle of a suburb! Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver has some very nice old growth tree trails, a scenic lighthouse and lots of great coastal views and sea critters to check out along the way. The trails are not very difficult and are great for all ages.

Lighthouse Park has always been a favourite of mine for a walk through the woods followed by a picnic on the rocks watching the boats go by. If it is a nice day, get there early to get a place to park or take the bus.

This is a great place to go for a stroll. Bring a couple of beers on ice or wine to enjoy when you get to the ocean (be discreet). It's a kind of "horseshoe shaped trail" hike with the ocean at the "rounded part" of the horseshoe. I"m pretty sure there are restrooms, but being a guy means the whole... More

Just be ready to get a little muddy if you stray off the main path to the Pt Atkinson Lighthouse...you'll enjoy the experience no matter which trail you take!

A beautiful park and trails in West Van. Great place to get outside and some fresh air. Make sure to walk all the way to the rocks, where you can see it more open and across the bay.

This was a great place for a short hike with young (ages 4-8) kids. We took the Valley Trail down to the Lighthouse viewpoint, had a snack, and hiked up the Beacon Lane Trail (wide straight road/trail). Yes there were a lot of off leash dogs which is not so great for kids scared of dogs. PLEASE keep your dogs... More

This is the best place near Vancouver to see what the forests of the area would have looked like before logging. Big old growth trees on a moderate walk down to the ocean bluffs with wonderful views out across Vancouver and over to Vancouver Island. Be sure to take some of the side trail loops and not just the main... More
