Worth taking in if you are visiting West Vancouver or on your way to Horeshore Bay. Large parking lot and a well defined trail takes you to a rocky place to sit and have a picnic, enjoy the fab. view and hike back at a slow pace taking in the beautiful surroundings. A local treasure.

Anyone visiting Vancouver who is a nature lover must come here. Even without the lighthouse itself, the giant Douglas First alone make this worthwhile. Trails are well groomed and there is a choice of easy walks and challenging trails along the rocky shore. Many beautiful lookout points on the way. You can just come for a quick walk, or a... More

Note that this lighthouse is at Lighthouse Park, on the far west side of West Vancouver. It was a little hard to find, but our GPS directed us there correctly. We were not able to see the full lighthouse (just the top) from the main trail to it and the nearby viewpoint. We walked down to West Beach and from... More

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.
