very crowded when I was there.

My home is on this trail, so I've done it dozens of times. A beautiful walk or bike ride.
Bring your dog and stop at off-leash parks.

Went there tonight, it was a nice trail overall - we were on the Pandora part - but then we didn’t get to finish it as we saw a black bear. It was looking at us, came forward a couple steps so we turned around and went back from where we were coming from. I think it was a female, not sure if there were cubs around but didn’t risk it! Otherwise it was good, I’d probably go back and hopefully enjoy more views next time!

Nice walk very busy.
Better are the interior park trails as quieter.

Nice small walk along the bay. Sometimes it’s too crowded but you get to enjoy all those activities that people are doing around.

Lovely walk with some very good views. Vancouverites are very lucky to have such an amazing park right in the centre!

Scenic beauty along sea wall

great dog walking area. great views, good for a brisk walk

The view along this walk is amazing. Lots of great sights and many places to stop for a few and relax. A walk you shouldn’t pass up

I wish the description or reviews mentioned it is pay to park ($3.50 per hour).

definitely an experience. pleasant and easy!

Lots of options around these trails!

Exploring this trail, bike or walk, is an amazing way to spend half the day. Many beautiful views, pit stops along the beach for a dip in the ocean, and even public washrooms.
super family friendly.
I've done the route a few times already and will probably do it a few more times.

Super nice view

Just ok

Almost 10km, amazing views ! I did several times.

Bikes around the trail. There are some spots where cyclists have to dismount. Washrooms along the way.
Very scenic and stunning.
Bustling with people eager to get out with their families and loved ones for the day.

Biked the trail, it offers some really amazing views. It’s a good idea when you want to have a active yet relaxed day. After half way we had a little picnic and then continued.
Early morning is the more serene and blissful time to do it.

Not so much a "trail" as it is just a very lovely park to stroll around.

Awesome walk down the English Bay. Not necessarily a "hike" but a great stroll nonetheless.
If you love people watching this is for you!

Favourite seaside ride. Part of the seawall that extends from the Park to Yaletown, then on to the Science Centre and around to Granville Island all the way to Spanish Banks and UBC.

I highly recommend renting a bicycle and riding in and around Stanley Park. It's a gorgeous place to spend half a day. We actually rode bicycles all around Vancouver including Grandview island. This loop trail is very busy during weekends with runners and cyclists.
