Located in Belcarra Regional Park, Admiralty Point is a short hike that offers spectacular views of Deep Cove, Mount Seymour, and Burnaby Mountain across the waterways connecting Burrard Inlet with Indian Arm. The trail has very little elevation change and is perfect for families. The trail continues along the shoreline, offering glimpses of scenery and the passing boats on a warm summer's day. The trail eventually reaches a sign pointing the way to Cod Rock. This is a short side track with a view worth checking out before continuing along the trail. After walking another kilometer from Cod Rock, the trail reaches a junction with a sign pointing the direction to Admiralty point. Go right and follow the path about 100 meters to a rocky outcrop along the shore. You've reached your destination and this is a great spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful view of the North Shore mountains as the waves lap up against the rocks. After enjoying the scenery at Admiralty Point, return to the main trail where the sign to Admiralty Point was. The trail continues for another 30 minutes or so to a beach area and Burns Point. The beach offers a similar view to what Admiralty Point has and is only a short distance beyond the junction. Burns Point offers a view of the waterway connecting Burrard Inlet with Port Moody. When you are ready to return to the picnic and parking area at Belcarra Regional Park, re-trace your steps along the trail and follow the path along the shoreline. Another hike in Belcarra Regional Park is the trail to Jug Island Beach. The trail to Jug Island Beach is a bit more difficult and both trails can be hiked in one day.

Amazing view.

Nice trail but it isn't really a hike, it's more of a nature walk. Would be great for people with kids or anyone with pets. It is very pretty!

The views are not that nice and you have a constant humming noise because out of the factory's accros the water. It doesn't feel like you are far in the nature because of the noise. Dog mountain and deep cove are way more impressive!!!

Very east trail - not suitable for strollers. The kids handled this one no problem. Beautiful little beach (Maple Beach) that would be nice for swimming in the summer.

Nice easy trail we walked this weekend. Waterfalls and giant trees. The rocky point at the end was quite slippery - mind your step.

Beautiful views out over the water, and a nice place to sit on the rock out at the point before turning back. Trail is in good shape, a few gentle inclines a rocky/root sections, but suitable for beginners.
