  • It place gives you the panoramic view of Vancouver. Breath-taking. It's similar to Lawrence Lab outlook point at the U. of California-Berkeley where you see the entire SF Bay. you must take the car up...  more »
  • Just north of the city, drive up to the viewpoint to see all of Vancouver laid out below. On a clear day the views are spectacular. Combine it with a visit to Horseshoe Bay 
  • I had read and seen so many good things about the Howe Sound Crest Trail that I made the hike up it to the Bowen Lookout part of my trip. However, I took a wrong turn at the start of Yew Lake and ende...  more »
  • There's a trail for everyone to enjoy. The Baden Powell one is worth it. It's not too long but not too short either. Just perfect for an afternoon. Make sure to stop at the lookout on your way back down, especially when the sun is setting.
  • One of my favourite places in Vancouver, Summer and Winter. Go up to mount Strachan for epic views on the lions and Howe sound
  • Great place to visit and check out the olympic rings, and grab a bite to eat.. If skiing is your thing, and winter time it is... Then strap on your skis (or snowboard) and ride the lifts and check out some of the slopes used for the Olympics.. Great overlook on the way up to cypress. No parking fees, food not too expensive.
  • Hollyburn mountain trail is an easy dog and kids friendly hike from the Cypress cross country skiing parking lot. The trail, 8 km return with a 450 m elevation gain, is clearly marked and will take 3-4 hours to complete. The flat rocky summit offers scenic views of Howe Sound, the Lions, Crown and Camel Mountains etc. .
  • This is a great place to go for a hike if you're not wanting to stray too far from the Vancouver area. There's a good selection of hikes, including St. Mark's Summit, which gives a spectacular view of Howe Sound and is one of my favourite local hikes. Hikes on the other side, like Eagle Bluffs/Black Mountain, give nice views of the city.
