The main trail down to the lighthouse is easy. However, the lighthouse itself is closed to the public which is a real disappointment. The trail to the lighthouse viewing area is more difficult and can be slippery when wet. Most washroom facilities were closed in April.

Located north of Vancouver just off the the Sea to Sky Highway. we used GPS to get to it. Many easy hiking trails. Enjoy the forest and plants along the way to the beach and lighthouse. We enjoyed sitting on the rocky banks and cliffs. Provided a great view of the Vancouver skyline, the lighthouse and boats.

Nice, clearly marked trails through old-growth forest down to the water. Very enjoyable hiking but some of the trails are pretty steep and uneven, and there isn't any way to know the difficulty of each trail without examining it in person. Still, if you can make it down the lighthouse walk, the views are great.

This is a beautiful park but has gone downhill over the years with too many people and out of control dogs on the main trails, especially on weekends. Plus less biodiversity now - used to love to listen to the grouse booming but they’ve been gone from the park for years. Still enjoy Eagle Point with its fawn lilies in spring and nice Arbutus trees. Also still see sapsuckers on the east side of the park.

Wonderful peaceful walk through the forest! At the end of the 15 minute gentle way you are rewarded with spectacular ocean vista!

The trails are well marked and you get a decent view of the light house.

You can’t get to the lighthouse that is off limits.

It is possible to get to the ocean.

They have part of a trail that is graded with gravel for handicap accessible. Which was super nice.

Limited bathrooms. FYI.

A bit off the beaten track (west Vancouver - about 45 mins from the city center) and much-less visited than its popular neighbor, Stanley, Lighthouse Park is a beautiful gem worth discovering. The trails are easy to navigate and well-marked, some paths allow you to walk through some first growth Douglas Fir and Sequoias groves, and there are lots of nice vistas throughout where you can glimpse the ocean, Stanley Park and Vancouver Harbor in the distance. BTW, it's easy to get to from the city, just jump on a bus and it will drop you 5 minutes from the park entrance.

Close to Vancouver, with easy trails that lead to great views of the sea. Not very busy even on a Saturday morning. This would be a great place for sunset views.
