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.

The jewel of Vancouver. You get to see some of the best views Vancouver has to offer.

Rented bikes and cruised the whole way around. Great day!

Walk or cycle. A must do for anyone visiting Vancouver.
Bring your swimmers for Third beach if the weather is nice.

Nice leisurely bike route

Great place to take a stroll or a leisure bike ride.

A decent walk - could feel it in my legs after. Not as busy as I expected. It's stroller friendly too.

One of Vancouver's main attractions!

Not exactly a trail, just a nice path for walk and/or run

biking one way (counter clockwise) closes gate on trail 11 pm good for wheelchairs and seniors lots of benches to rest with breath taking scenery

Excellent! A pleasant long walk in the park
As easy as it gets.

Very Busy otherwise an enjoyable walk with lots of great views and Granville Island!

Flat and path all the way, great for a lunch break run

Dangerous at night, not great during the day. Avoid Chinatown and the Eastside area. Especially Hastings

Great views around the entire seawall. I typically bike it but be sure to be careful around certain turns

Great for tourists looking to hit the top spots in downtown Vancouver. For locals, not so much. I would probably attempt the "trail" in a different order but you definitely hit many of the top spots to see.
