This is a beautiful rainforest area flanking the Capilano River. There are many kilometres of walking trails to choose from - short or long! We did the Coho Loop (1 km, about 30 mins) alongside the river, and part of the Pipeline trail heading down to the Suspension Bridge Park. The paths were clear with good signage. It seemed popular with locals for walking their dogs. We spotted a woodpecker up close, but no other birdlife.

A gorgeous park with scenic views of the mountains, the Capilano River, and the Cleveland Dam. The place is ideal for a family picnic and a relaxing afternoon rest.

The trailhead is comfortable for recreational distant walking or hiking. Further down the trail is the Capilano River Hatchery and it’s amazing to watch the spawning ponds and jumping salmon.

A peaceful place to commune with nature.

We went for an afternoon walk in this park. The weather was cool, sunny and perfect temperature. It was not filled with lots of people and the walk in the forest was soul soothing and magnificent. I wish the same experience for you!

You can walk this area via a gravel road on the west side of the river down to the hatchery or down a trail with a bunch of stairs on the east side. Suggest doing the stair route down and the road back up. The stairs are on the far east side of the field at the dam level. Cross over the river below the hatchery and then you have some great rails that connect to the gravel "road" to head back up. Dont miss walking by the huge 300 year old fir tree!!

Walk on miles of well groomed trails on either side of the Capilano River, around and under old growth trees. Children love playing on the huge fallen logs. Overlooks dot the river and provide great views. Do not miss the fish hatchery and salmon ladders. There’s no charge for anything.

My husband and I visited the park and the trails on a Thursday. Even though the description of the trails says “easy,” it is not easy throughout. There are many stairs here and there. We enjoyed our one-hour hike in the forest.

The Capilano Bridge, opened in 1889, with its 70 meters is the highest suspension bridge in all of British Columbia. Crossing it is a unique and unforgettable experience and from there you can enjoy a magnificent view of the valley and the river of Capilano.
The Bridge, reachable in about twenty minutes by bus from Downtown Vancouver, is located in the center of a large natural park. The educational trail through the park, full of information services and maps, makes the Capilano Bridge a very instructive attraction for everyone, even for families with children. Not to be missed!

Amongst all the attractions that North Vancouver has to offer this must surely be the best. Not only is it free, but easily accessible by public transport.

At the entrance to the park you can pick up a very useful pamphlet with information regarding the park.

We enjoyed walking the many trails which were thankfully very cool on a hot day. They are all very well marked and the only hiatus we had was that part of the Palisades Trail, near the Salmon Hatchery, was closed.

Found the visit to the Hatchery very interesting.

I often stop to walk beside the Capilano River along the trails that run beside it. It's a great place to "get away from it all", meditate, or just commune with Nature.
I'd love to add photos, but this short form doesn't allow for it.
