Uneven ground, not always clear where to go. Pleasant enough, but disappointing not to be able to get to the lighthouse.

This is a lovely hike! Even in the rain, our shoes had great traction on the rocks. It’s mostly downhill there, and uphill back. But really worth the short time it takes to see this beautiful place.

I read several of the reviews that indicated this was an easy hike. I did not find it so, both in terms of the steepness of many of the trails and the fact that the trails were pretty rough, lots of rocks etc. I don't necessarily want a groomed trail, but even though I hike a reasonable amount I would not call this a 'walk in the park'. If you have any physical issues you would be advised to skip this venue. We even saw dogs panting coming back up to the parking lot. It is very difficult to find a spot to park. I had really been looking forward to seeing this park/lighthouse, but I agree with others that it is a bit of a disappointment in terms of the accessibility and views one can get of the lighthouse itself. My best photos of it have come from the water, on the ferry to Vancouver Island.

Bring the kids, bring the dogs, bring grandma, there are many trails all reasonably easy. Bring a pic-nic basket, and sit on the rocks watching kayaks and boats float by. Great views to downtown Vancouver, views to Bowen Island and Horseshoe bay. Or, go for lunch to Horseshoe bay at the end of your hike, you will love the seafood. You will need a car to get here, but its all easy.

Easily accessed from the Lower Marine Drive road through West Vancouver. A history as a light house then for years, if not still a summer training ground for Junior Forest Wardens. The writer once enjoyed the youth program as a Junior Forest Warden. It was a marvelous experience scrambling over the shore side rocks, learning as well how to fight forest fires along the walking trails. Great memories. Today the Point still offers amazing quiet walks, reflective opportunity and a breath of forest and ocean air. Definitely a great few hours to experience.
