If you need a place to stroll through trails and paths surrounded by trees and ocean this is definitely a go-to place in West Vancouver. It is off leash and your dog is able to explore along with you. You choose how adventurous you want to be as some trails are a good workout and others are a nice stroll... More

This park is very close to the city yet less crowded than Lynn canyon or Capillano. Breathtaking views from the cliffs out to the ocean, combined with a lush forest with a few centennial cypresses. Worth a stop !

This park has well marked trails, but it is a good idea to have a map of the trails in your pocket. The trails offer easy, intermediate, and, if one gets off the trails (as we did), difficult levels of hiking and rock climbing. There is adequate parking, outhouses, and few people. It is free.

If you are returning from Squamish or Whistler and need to spend time to avoid the horrible traffic this is a great option. The park is located past a residential neighborhood giving a feeling of less traveled. It is best visited on a clear day, but if you are into old growth trees it could be visited any time. Lots...

The hike is about a mile, maybe more, through a forest (very shaded) of large trees. There are a number of times you need to climb a little, so not for those who have difficulty walking. The end is a large rock formation, which you can climb, that looks out over the water. There is a lighthouse nearby, as well... More

Enjoy a peaceful, relaxed walk from Marine Drive parking area to the Lighthouse on a sunny afternoon or watch the sunset from the high rock above. Very shady with magnificent trees along the way. Total time is about an hour round-trip.

We tried to go here, we parked and started to walk down the long path, then we realized the path going there was all down hill and we didn't really want to walk back up it. (we had been exploring all over town that day and our feet really hurt) we decided to turn back and just google a picture... More

This park seems to be frequented mostly by locals so it's a nice escape from the tourist treadmill. There are a multitude of walks so you can get some silence on the harder ones like Valley of the Giants where the PNW softwoods are hundreds of years old and enormous. There are a lot of coastal lookouts and spots for... More
