Are you looking for the best hikes in Vancouver? Well, it is without hesitation that I recommend Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver. This post is chalked full of photos to show why I loved this family adventure!
It was an average Sunday in our household, which means “Sunday – Funday!” While I had absolutely NO ambition to peel off the warm blankets and get moving, the reality is that you can’t write a blog about adventure and spend Sundays on the couch.
I told the kids it was time for family fun and it warmed my heart how quickly they were digging out their hiking boots and collecting all of their gear. “I need a hat”, “I need a whistle” – music to my ears.
We chose Lighthouse Park because of the family-friendly slope and the view of the lighthouse. Other than that, I had no clue about the park.
My first surprise was when we arrived. Apparently the sunny 15 degree February day had given many people the same idea and the parking lot was PACKED. It turned out that it was a bit of a game, but there seemed to be as many people finishing up their hikes as there was starting them, so it only took a little wait before we had our spot.
The trail didn’t disappoint. It had a nice wide walking trails which my children “flew” like airplanes down. There was lots of points of interest along the way to stop and look at… way more than I expected.
