A quick loop guide to getting the most out of this small park. At the far south/west point of West Vancouver along Marine Drive is the Lighthouse Park. A small(ish) park it gives a great representation of the west coast flora and terrain. While the core of the park would be considered easy terrain, the outer loop trails represented by this guide should be considered moderate and you should definitely be equipped for the terrain. A great hike, this back and forth loopy walk will take you through most areas of the park and show you all the major view points and highlights. Official trail maps can be found at the information kiosks in the parking lots or downloaded from the City of West Vancouver website.

Beautiful scenic ocean views, gorgeous huge trees and mossy forest. I loved it here and look forward to going back! Well behaved dogs are allowed to be off leash which is fantastic. It's steep in some parts but really well maintained.

The direct trail to the lighthouse view point took less than 8 minutes. The view was OK. If the private gate nearby is open, enter the driveway and you'll be surprised how much closer the lighthouse is from there. Juniper point will also surprise you with a great view at the end.

Easy “hike” with many viewpoints...almost too easy for all the amazing lookouts you are rewarded with!

Probably my favourite park around Vancouver. Here you get to enjoy both the majestic west coast forest in its original state and beautiful ocean vistas. Highly recommended,

The hike was basically a 15 min walk, so if you are expecting to hike for a good hour or two, this is not the one for you.The view is very pretty though.

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

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.

Lots of different trails to choose from. I did the west side of the park, lots of great view points. Can't wait to explore the east side! Definitely on the easier side of hikes, but still very rewarding.

Cool trail, not long or difficult. Interesting to see some of the old memorabilia they have in the park. The lighthouse itself is inaccessible by way of fence but the surrounding view are very pretty with the coastlines and open ocean.

Good little hike, little too busy, would recommend to go week day when less ppl. Awesome scenery, many good spots to just chill and take the beautiful views in. If you do the whole loop and make few stops you should do in couple of hrs. Make sure bring snacks and couple of sandwiches! Enjoy

Clear trail markers, a bit muddy in March, well worth the view.
