For many Vancouver residents Lighthouse Park has long been a favourite place for walking and picnicking; its main trails at least are well known and well worn. From the profusion of paths and trails crisscrossing the 75 ha (185 acres) of untouched coastal forest forming the backdrop to the Point Atkinson lighthouse, I have devised a circular hike that explores the less-frequented eastern side of the park as well as the popular west coast. These perimeter trails surmount the highest part of the peninsula and are often rough underfoot, requiring sturdy footwear. Families with small children might prefer to take the self-guiding nature walk along Valley Trail. Leaflets and maps are usually available at the kiosks in the parking area. Continuing westward, past the buildings, you will soon find yourself on a rock overlooking the lighthouse. A plaque gives details of its century-old history. Stay with the signposted Shore Pine Trail through the maze of paths on this side of the park, but don’t pass up a side trip onto Shore Pine Point to look down along the rocky coast and across to Bowen Island. currently offers topo maps from the entire United States. We plan to expand our topomap database in the future, however this map is not available at this time. Thank you for your understanding.
