Hiking Cypress Falls

Cypress Falls Park is a lesser known, yet impressive area of forest in West Vancouver. A walk through the trails of Cypress Falls Park takes you amongst some of the biggest trees you can find on the North Shore. The 300+ year old giants are rivaled only by the trees of nearby Lighthouse Park.

As Cypress Falls Park sits at a lower elevation, this hike is accessible year-round and is family-friendly. It is a great hike to save for an overcast or rainy day. Spring is the perfect time of year for a hike to Cypress Falls.

Cypress Creek carves its way through the park and provides two impressive waterfalls.
