If you're looking for great views of the city of Vancouver and Burrard Inlet, then head to Cypress Provincial Park, just a short drive from the Lions Gate Bridge. Was hoping to see some wildlife but the panoramic view more than made up for it:)!! Be sure to bring your camera!

Cypress Falls is a great place to go for a hike! It was our first time and even with a few misturns (trail not really marked) we made it up and down in less than an hour. Some steep spots but made for a great climb. We were lucky to meet a couple and their dog who live in the... More

An easy drive from downtown Vancouver, it's free, and gorgeous. What's not to love! And - we even saw a young black bear here. Took about 15 minutes to drive here from Stanley Park, and it's a gorgeous view once you're up there. Really wonderful, and - unlike Grouse Mountain - completely free! Go!

This is a great place if you have a car to spin up and catch a great view. We just went las tweek(last week in April). The ski season is over but there is a spot about halfway up the mountain to catch a panaramic view of downtown. Best of all - it's free.

Wait for a clear day and take short the ride on Highway 1 out of West Vancouver up toward Cypress Provincial Park and you get spectacular views of Vancouver and Burrard Inlet. Cypress Bowl Road has a turnout just a few miles off of Highway 1 where you can see for miles and miles and kilometers and kilometers.

Great place for hiking in the summer - views over the city and the wilderness/mountain ranges to the north. Access point to the wild.

Always a favouriteof ours over the years as the kids grew up in Lynn Valley North Vancouver, nice sunset viewing, great to watch the English Bay fireworks, with out travelling across the Lions gate, and trying to get a parking spot in English Bay which is impossible.

Cypress Provincial Park is one of the things that I love the most about Canada, more specifically, Vancouver. You can get unparalleled views of Mother Nature, just a short drive away from the city. Never been here in Summer but in winter it is great. Despite the crowds of people, it was extremely peaceful and picturesque. We took a hike... More
