Access to this lighthouse is thru the Lighthouse park in West Vancouver. It is a short and easy 45 min walk. A search for the hidden bunker will make your walk even more adventurous.

Fabulous walk through some "Giants" that ends with stunning, panoramic views of Burrard from the North Shore mountains to Point Grey and beyond. Various spur trails offer different vantage points of the Lighthouse and surrounding landscape. The main trail is accessible, but with some steep...More
