Some people come for the trails, and some for the food. Some bring their significant other just to sit in the parking lot and marvel at the sunset. I come for the views, and never tire of them. I strongly recommend this spot, especially to those new to our city - find your way here and see Burrard Inlet to the east, Indian Arm to the north, and Vancouver to the west, all by walking about 100 yards. The steep drop to the north allows relatively unimpeded views in all three directions.
Difficult to get to by public transit, but lots of free parking. Public restrooms adjacent the restaurant. Ainu art of Kushiro Park also close by.
All this in the middle of winter, no less.

Large (free) parking lot at the top of the road (Centennial Rd) but still very packed on a Friday night around 7:30 pm. Lots of intersecting walking trails for varying abilities with grand views of the North Shore, esp. during sunset. Kids' playground, rose garden, washrooms, and a stunning collection of wood sculptures (poles) that take centre stage against the sunset. Such a beautiful, scenic place to relax, walk (with leashed dogs), meditate, picnic and enjoy nature at the top of the mountain. Accessible by public transit from Simon Fraser University or Burnaby Mountain Pkwy and walking up/to mountain.

Amazing views of surrounding mountains, inlet, ocean, city views all the way to the horizon. Good parking. Temporarily empty restaurant facility. On same mountain as large university and venues. Popular spot for international visitors.

Burnaby Mountain (where SFU is located) is the best little mountain in metro Vancouver for hiking and mountain biking. Lots of trails that lead all the way to the inlet, up and down for a good workout and with a university and a great restaurant at the top. You can park on a city street or the top, either gives you ready access. Plenty of trail maps and as long as you stay on the trail, safe. Be aware that this is bear territory so be smart.

We visited on a cool, cloudy, humid day so not perfect, but what a beautiful mountain/park! We had little time so the 3 km (roundtrip to the parking at the top) on the Pandora Trail was perfect for us. The trail was a beginner-intermediate level trail compared to the Grouse Grind, and had it been any wetter or muddier, it may not have been do-able without hiking poles and/or hiking shoes.

The views with hints of water through the pines, ferns and other forested growth made it worthwhile!

At the bottom of the trail, we happened on a beautiful neighborhood with lovely homes.

I highly recommend if you have a few hours to explore. It's a short drive from Vancouver.

The pictures here should give you an idea.

If you've never been to a political protest, this is the perfect place to start. Whether you're a nature lover, a history buff, or you just believe in your own well-informed common sense, you'll find what you're looking for in an easy day-trip from anywhere in BC's lower mainland.

To really appreicate what your fellow protesters are shouting about, try to do a little reading before you go. But even if you can't take the time to understand why a Texas pipeline company has police-protected access to a public park in Canada and you don't, you'll catch on right away. The scenes of armed RCMP guarding drilling equipment are unmatched unless you've been to Algeria to watch the Chinese.

No, you don't have to go to Algeria or any other desperate, repressed country. You can protest right here at home, only minutes from downtown Vancouver. Burnaby Mountain Park -- it's safe, affordable and exciting for the whole family!

This protest is the start of the electorate of taking back the power from corporations. Join the rest of us concerned with the environment and our governments sell out.

Joined a bunch of friends at this location during the summer, did not get much chance to check out the view and sadly our table was near the centre of the restaurant so did not get to see too much out the windows. The view looks out towards the Burrard Inlet and the City of Burnaby. There are some old totem poles there which I was not able to get close to to check them out.

It's close enough to the city but far away enough to feel like I'm in the clouds
