If you are visiting, or have out-of-town visitors to entertain, its a great place to stroll down, amaze them, for no cost. They will love the forest, and the views to UBC, while getting a light excercise.

Although we never got on a trail were you could see the lighthouse very well, I'm sure there is one. The forest and the views of ocean and city are stunning!

This is a relatively easy forest walk out to the old lighthouse on the point. The day we went was a sunny day and I was very impressed to see my first three bald eagles. There was easy parking the day plus some great views of Howe Sound.

It is highly recommended to make the trip for a photo opp and just for the exercise. Take a picnic lunch and make a day of it. It is some of the finest hiking in the area.

It was very hard for us to find a spot to park our car when we came on a nice day last month in July. The hikes are nice. There are several options for long and short hikes. On either side of the trails you can admire the forest. When in season, eating the huckleberries off the bushes is nice.... More

Located in Lighthouse Park, the lighthouse is worth a visit. Bring a picnic lunch and spend the day hiking and exploring the park and lighthouse.

Located in Lighthouse Park, this is a great place to see as it offers awesome views of Vancouver, and is rarely busy. For elderly or people who need wheelchais assistance, ths is a gret spot as the trail leading to the lighthouse, although steep in a couple spots, is very wide and smooth.
