After an initial steep climb alongside the ski slopes of Cypress Mountain resort, this hike turns into a lovely relaxing amble past subalpine lakes and out to Eagle Bluff. There you sit at the corner of Vancouver, looking down on Lighthouse Park, Horseshoe Bay, and Point Grey. NOTE: Dogs are not permitted at Yew Lake, but leashed dogs are permitted in the park. No fees or permits are required. There is fresh water available near the trailhead, but not during this hike. Road Cyclists love the challenge of biking up the steep switchbacks of Cypress Bowl Road - called the Cypress Challenge.

There are a lot of loose rocks, so wear good shoes. Also quite a few black flies bothering us near the beginning of the trail. I love the "secret" lake about half way up where you can take a dip. Really amazing view from the top.

Great hike. Well marked and fairly busy. Buggy but not bad. Shame about the haze.

did this track after work 5.30pm on a Monday, it was not very busy at all and we got back by 9pm before dark which was nice. view at the top is amazing, with cute chipmunks and birds. there were sooo many bugs the whoooole way which was extreeemely annoying but at least they don't bite, and there were no slugs which was good, I hate them. if you can get over the bugs this is a perfect half day hike. only muddy in 2 spots so probably doable in runners now.

Amazing. The trail up itself is not super nice for the first half, as it's next to a ski hill in the summer, but once you get to the lake it's great, and it's a solid workout if going at a good pace. The view, and the peak itself, is spectacular. One of a few North Shore views I've seen that are just incredible. Bring a baguette, cheese, wine, and book on a sunny day and just find a place to settle.
