a little bit of rainforest on the Vancouver bus route!

Take the 257 bus from Georgia St, half an hour you're there. Beautiful old growth forest, rocky coastline and great views, bring a picnic!

A well maintained trail system leads you to the lighthouse at the trail end. Nice parking area allows easy access to the forest trails with old timber growth seen along the way. Nice viewing area and photo opportunity.

We all met at the trail entrance and hiked the roundabout way to the Lighthouse. It was a beautiful hike with nice vistas and places to sit on the rocks. Once we got to the Lighthouse it was a great end of the hike.

This is a highlight of Vancouver. An oasis of nature in the city. Many trails to choose from. Spectacular views. Trails were well marked.

We love this amazing park and visit it frequently with our kids. Old growth forest, dramatic rock cliffs overlooking the sparkling ocean. But today we reminded how important it is to keep your eyes peeled to your little ones: emergency services attended to a 7-year old who fell from the cliff and stumbled down 15 metres (he suffered serious injuries)....

This is my favorite place to visit when in Vancouver. Its free and about the most beautiful place you can visit. Your visit starts in an ancient forest with massive old growth trees. Then its out onto the beach and massive boulders where you have an impressive view of Vancouver!

I took the bus from Vancouver and it took less than 45 minutes. You can drive closer in with a car. The bus lets you off in a residential neighborhood and it's just a short walk into the park which is a lovely forest with many trails. There was hardly anyone there. fI you like lighthouses and great views and... More
