It’s a short trail, Quite and gives a decent view... you can spent some time and enjoy the serenity of this place ... well maintained..

Nice little trail, quite urban to start with, we started from Marine Drive, but was quite quiet along it, not too taxing, it's a gradual incline to the dam, good shelter in the trees and pretty surroundings too!

Nice walk lots of awesome bridges and great views.

The trail is in great condition and easy to maneuver across the creek as the bridge is washed out. Make sure you take the 10 minutes to walk to the lake before crossing the bridge. Pay attention to the trail markings as there are many different trails, you could get sidetracked easily.

Wear hikers over runners... terrian on the Shore Pine trail is rocky... the beacon lane trail is a simple 10 min walk from parking to the lighthouse lookout

We got a bit lost not taking the right turn and didn't manage to do a loop just went up and back because the time we spent lost. Beautiful view, still well covered in snow.

We did this trail yesterday. Still completely covered in snow, so prepare to walk through snow the entire route. Trail is still easy to follow as there are signs along the way. We were the only ones at the summit in the morning. Beautiful view and worth the trek through the snow.

Hiked yesterday, snow the entire way starting at the parking lot basically. Crampons suggested!

Still lots of snow, micro spikes are recommended with hiking boots

Rookie mistake on my part to not wear hiking boots. Still tons of snow but melting away. Good pair of boots still needed.

Really beautiful view of Vancouver and the ocean.

Did this hike today. Snow right from the beginning. Not a hard hike, but a beautiful view at the end. If you are looking for a short hike, this is a good one.

Great relaxing hike. Multiple view points of the ocean. I went early around 9am so the parking was not so bad. However as I was leaving around noon, there were no spots available.

Amazing hike along a number of ridges. Gets hot in the sun. Fantastic lakes to camp at.

We hiked this on May 2, 2018 and the trail is still covered in snow but it’s all compact and hard so i didn’t even use my snowshoes or crampons. My hiking shoes was enough. I brought my 9 year old little 12 pounder shihtzu as well and he handled it like a superstar. Cypress is closed for the season now so we used the ski hill to slide down on our asses to the lodge. It was super fun. (Though i advise you to stay on the trail). It was a great day hike. Short but good workout. ❤️

Awesome but super hard .

Well marked trail. We went in October and it was fairly muddy and snowy so boots are definitely the preference over sneakers. Such a stunning view at the top to hang out and have a snack and enjoy all the whiskey jacks!

Travel light but bring plenty of water. Prepare yourself for amazing views. No one is overstating when they say the trail is difficult. Did the trail in August 2015

It’s a great trail but unlike the proposed route, it’s not actually possible to cross the suspension bridge from the west side. If you zoom into this proposed hike, you’d have to go off trail.

Very nice hike, long but not steep. Lots of cool wooden bridges and amazing dam in the one end of the loop. If you walk with small children, from half point it is possible to take s transit back or continue on the other side of the river. Overall it was 18 km and took 4 hours.

Amazing view and the hike was difficult but I loved it!

Almost didn’t go because we thought it was one of Cypress’s paid snowshoe trails. Luckily an employee directed us to the correct trailhead which was a little further down the road from the ticket and rental area.

Great 360 view from the top. Did Feb 18 and it was chilly and beautiful, with mostly packed snow on the trail. Used microspikes. There are some steep sections where it would also help to have poles, but not required. Snowshoes were not necessary and many snowshoers were sliding on their butts down steep sections.

Nice views. Great wildlife.

Best on a sunny winter day when you can slide down the snow on your butt

The hike was great make sure you take poles and proper snowshoes. The view on the top is amazing. Make sure you check the avalanche warnings there are about 4 avalanche paths make sure you are prepared before you head up in the winter.

Easy, year around trail. Nice scenery. The canyon is very beautiful. It took us 4-5 hours to finish the whole trip.
