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.

First part of trail was quite steep with loose rocks so can be somewhat slippery going downhill on the return trip. No snow left on trail but some parts are muddy. It was a cloudy, rainy day and we didn’t think we would have a view but we were lucky because the clouds parted as we reached the bluff. Nice hike with a beautiful view. There was a raven and a couple of chipmunks on the bluff waiting for food. Took us about 3 hours return.

It was raining and foggy but a beautiful hike nonetheless! Steep to start but then fairly relaxed but a decent amount of mud and rocks along the way

Did the hike today. Still quiet a bit of snow. The northern trail that summits black mountain has much less snow and better views then the cabin lake trail.

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.

Fyi 90% of the elevation gain is right from the get go otherwise a not bad trek. Bring some coffee to sip and stay awhile when you finally get there.

Decided to start the hike at 10pm, and got quite lost, non the less, an amazing starlit sky, and goregous view to wake up to, definitely recommend this bad boy! Bring bug spray! You'll get eaten alive. and stay hydrated

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.
