“Best view of the city at night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Went up the mountain at night to grab a quick night photograph. Safe place and a very nice lookout. One of the best places we found to escape the city. I would go back in a heart beat. Great place to talk. Bring a coffee or hot chocolate depending on the time you go up.

“beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013

The drive up is tricking with current road repairs. There is a great view point part way up. At the top, the mountains are so beautiful. Parking is plentiful in the off season. Hiking trails abound. Such a nice place to spend the day. Fun to see the Olympic rings.

“Birds Eye View from Cypress Provincial Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

Panaromic views, short hikes or extended back-country trips Cypress Provincial Park offers it all. Visitors can simply drive up to the lodge enjoying numerous viewpoints and lookouts along the way, or you can pack your back pack and tackle the Howe Sound Crest Trail to Porteau Cove. Numerous trails begin at the day lodge and offer a wide variety for those interested in exploring the North Shore Mountains. After your hike enjoy a treat at the Lodge and take a peek at the 2010 Olympic memorabilia. During our recent visit, we hiked the Howe Sound Crest Trail to St. Marks Summit. It was a wonderful hike with great views of Howe Sound. For more detailed information and pictures, please visit our blog: http://no-wrong-turns.blogspot.ca Be sure to dress for the weather and be properly prepared before venturing into the back country. The Cypress Provincial Park website provides great information to help visitors prepare for their trip. Of course in the winter months when the snow flies Cypress Mountain offers fantastic skiing, snowboarding and showshoe adventures for all skill levels. I highly recommend a visit to Cypress Provincial Park.

“Great day-hike, stunning views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

We went on a glorious sunny day in mid-July for a day-hike to Eagle Bluffs, just after Black Mountain. Start from the last parking lot in the park. The first stretch up a gravelly path along the ski lift was a little dusty but some of the glimpses of the mountain views already impressive. Take a dip in Cabin Lake, enjoy the views of the Lions. Then continue to Eagle Bluff for a fine picnic. The views of Vancouver, Bowen Island and Vancouver Island on a clear day were amazing.

The views as you travel up toward the mountain and down again are beautiful and we really enjoyed the snowshoeing.
