Yhe Park itself is an amazing place but the lighthouse, not so much. It is really just the end point on the trail, not much to look at and you can only see it from a distance. Strongly recommend you hike to Jackpine Point instead....More

Access to this lighthouse is thru the Lighthouse park in West Vancouver. It is a short and easy 45 min walk. A search for the hidden bunker will make your walk even more adventurous.

Were recommended to go here by a friend. Enjoyable walk but access to the lighthouse is closed so you basically get to the house of the people that maintain the property and that's it

The Lighthouse itself is cute. Nice location on the Point. The site was named by Captain George Vancouver when he sailed past the site. The site has historic significance especially during WW2. FYI, there is NO access to this Lighthouse. It is not Peggy's Cove...More
