Admiralty Point Hike
Admiralty Point Trail, near Belcarra Regional Park, is an easy and peaceful hike. The trail has minimal elevation change, making it a great choice for families. As a sea-level hike, it’s also a nice hike to do in the shoulder seasons when other hiking trails are covered in snow.
The main attraction of the Admiralty Point Trail is, not surprisingly Admiralty Point itself. Admiralty Point offers a great view of the North Shore (Mount Seymour and Deep Cove), the Indian Arm, Burrard Inlet, and Burnaby Mountain.
Read the guide for this hike here.
Until next month!
