Lighthouse Park, Caulfeild

Must see · Lighthouse · Park
Venture through Lighthouse Park, a rainforest covered parkland that features Point Atkinson Lighthouse as the main landmark. Walk among the rugged trails through the dense forest landscape, which is home to Douglas fir, Western hemlock, and Western red cedar. Reach the lighthouse viewpoint to see it perched upon an outcropping of rocks overlooking the ocean. Sit down and savor a picnic on the waterfront as cormorants and eagles fly overhead. Be sure to wear appropriate footwear, as the trails are known to get muddy and slippery.

  • Looking for something a bit different we headed to this park to take a look at an operational lighthouse. We were not prepared for hiking, wearing sandals, but the short path is good for all...  more »
  • Really fun walk! Easy to get to and beautiful views, hard to believe just a stone throw away from an incredibly busy city because it’s so peaceful! It’s also so clean and the trails are well...  more »
  • We went on a weekday morning and it was not very crowded, I could see that it would be popular in a sunny summer weekend though. We explored the paths and descended to East Beach and climbed the...  more »
  • Lighthouse Park is a stunning destination for a walk. I wouldn't call it a hiking place as the park is very small, but this makes it great for families with younger kids. There are some toilet facilities near the lighthouse and plenty of trails to explore if you're feeling adventurous. I only give 4 stars because parking is usually difficult to find, especially on a fair weather weekend.
  • Good combination for wild hiking/ trail. There’s many different trails to take and all with awesome views. I see a lot of people doing there photo shoots here. It’s very dog friendly so if you aren’t a dog person I suggest don’t go here haha. There’s a lot of private areas within the trails And even picnic areas and water stations, water falls and rock beach’s. You can either spend all day here.
  • Beautiful local trails deep in West Coast rain forest of West Vancouver. Overall, trails are short distance and moderate for walking. Several washrooms and wooden benches on main trail which is good specially when you go with family to rest and have a break. Good parking space. Beautiful scenery on the way and when you get to view points. I strongly recommend to pick up a free map of the park before heading to any of the trails to have a peace of mind not getting lost. Trails can be a bit slippery in wet and rainy days so having proper hiking shoes will help. No camping, no barbeque, no wheels of any type in this park. Dogs must be on leash all the time. Good place for photography. Respect the nature and the do not live you garbage behind. There are several educational signs about the local animals and plants and also history of the place that sending a bit of time and reading them give you a deeper understanding and observation of your visit. Have fun and enjoy this mysterious place. Cheers.
  • This was totally amazing! Only thing that was a bummer was that we couldn't get down to the lighthouse itself, but there was a lot of other stuff to see and experience. I had a problem with a bad knee, that kept me from exploring to much of the park, but what I saw was awesome. The trees are *so* old, and so dense that you'd never know how close you are to populated areas. If you get a chance, spend a day here!
  • Can't ever get to the light house. Maybe there are times that you can. Definitely look into it. Still a nice hike. Can get right down to the rocks at low tide.
