Lovely hike with many different path options depending on your desired hike length/difficulty. There are numerous lookout points that offer stunning views of the ocean below. I'd say the hike isn't too challenging, but you should have proper shoes, as the paths can be quite...More

Lighthouses are always interesting. Plenty of side trails to explore the forest. Rocky points provide views of the ocean, Stanley Park, Vancouver, University of BC endowment lands. Plenty of seabirds along with marine traffic to watch from an outcropping.

There isn't any overflow parking but there are a number of residential side streets that are 5-10 min from the park entrance. When we were there, we actually parked 3 streets down and asked one of the city bylaw officers who... More
