“Rugged in the city”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

A great place to take a hike or just a quiet wander. The views when you get to the clearings are absolutely gorgeous. Different hikes for different levels of fitness. Great place to take your dog.

“Went for the lighthouse, stayed for the view”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

For starters, the access road to parking had big potholes. Then again, I was glad just to find a spot though on Thanksgiving Day afternoon (~3pm).

The lighthouse viewpoint and view of the lighthouse itself wasn't much to see. But, the trip was redeemed by the East Beach Trail which has the awesome views.

“Great views and good walking trails”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

A wonderful view, take a blanket and a picnic and just lose time as you watch the boats go by. Lots of trails if you are looking for exercise. They have a Westie Walk every May where everyone follows a man playing the bag pipes. Easy to get to, view is best at the top of the trails, where you come out on the seaside rock.

“Rain Forest on Our Doorstep”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We live in North Vancouver, only a 15 minute drive from this beautiful park that we like to take our out of town guests to. A walk through the rain forest has great appeal to Europeans and Australians - to see the mighty Western Red Cedars & Douglas Firs! After a 15 - 20 minute hike you find yourself on the granite boulders surrounding the Point Atkinson Lighthouse that was built in 1875. Lots of photo opps along the way! You can watch the ship traffic to & from the Port of Vancouver.
