Lighthouse Park Walk – West Vancouver
One of the more popular easy trails with stunning views is Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver. When I asked Google Maps for a driving route, it suggested taking the Upper Levels Highway, which is a horrible route for a tourist. If you are coming from Vancouver stay on Marine Drive and head west. This will take you through the Ambleside and Dundarave sections of West Van, but then lead you to twisty roads with wonderful views. Be careful because the locals like to take these fast.
It’s a left turn onto Beacon Lane where you can head down to the park. The parking may be difficult on gorgeous days, so be patient.
The Beacon Lane trail is the direct route to the Lighthouse view point, but the various trails provide opportunity to avoid people and enjoy the spectacular trees and various birds that call the park home. Juniper Loop and Seven Sisters Trail were enjoyed by our group.
Compliments to the park staff. The bathroom by the Lighthouse was super clean.
As you can see from the photos, this is pretty much a required park to visit when in the area. Even during a pandemic.
