An easy hike through the forest is just an added pleasure as you work your way towards the lighthouse. The silence and majesty of the massive trees in this ancient growth forest is awe inspiring. A spiritual place indeed. When you finally climb the rock that overlooks the lighthouse, the view is stunning. You can sit and watch the huge... More

I have been coming to this lighthouse park for over 20 years. It's a tranquil romantic experience especially if the weather cooperates.

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.

This park is close to where we used to live and is well worth a hike, whether you have just a half hour or half a day. Numerous trails with access to the beach. Dogs are welcome but be sure to pick up the poops since rangers frequently appear and do not take kindly to your pet's souvenirs! Easy access... More

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!
