How to Get There

Super cool spot easily accessible

It can be a slight challenge to find the park, however, trust Google Maps and you'll be fine! There are lots of awesome trails that lead to the lighthouse that are short and easy for anyone. Take it easy and enjoy the park, the lighthouse itself is super cool and there are many terrific viewpoints in the park, both of the city and on the other side, Squamish Inlet.

A great place to visit right outside Vancouver

A fantastic little hike in West Vancouver. There are some stunning views from here of Stanley Park. If you can make it for sunset, the views are amazing. Definitely worth a visit.

Coolest hike in a city

It's hard to believe that this beautiful park is right in a big city. The views are amazing and so is the hiking within it. Plus being able to soak up some sun on a warm day on the rocks while looking at the lighthouse and the ships come into the port and the birdwatching makes it even better.

Small but beautiful

Watching sunset from here is gorgeous, amazing for a medium length walk with the dog.

Growing up meters from the beach it was no surprise that my love for photography began in and around the ocean.

 

 My consistent drive to get up every morning is fueled by the excitement and enjoyment of capturing visionary photographs of things that inspire me, whilst having a ton of fun along the way.

 

 I love the feeling adventure photography has given me, to explore new places and strive to capture the outdoors. I hope to inspire people through my work.
