Lighthouse Park Trip
West Vancouver BC
Liked: the views from Juniper Point, several benches inside the park, driving down Marine Drive (West Vancouver).
Of note: no flat parking spots (a very sloped parking area); one needs to know exactly where to go to see the good views.

Lighthouse Park is located in West Vancouver, and you can get there by driving for 15-20 minutes West on Marine Drive after crossing the Lions Gate bridge. Marine Drive is very scenic, with numerous driveways heading up very steep hills, where the good people of West Vancouver live in their lovely mansions. Marine Drive requires careful driving due to frequent blind turns, but it is a pleasant driving experience nonetheless. Lighthouse Park is on the left side of Marine Drive, if you are heading West. The entrance to the park is easy to miss, as it does not stand out all that much.
1. After a very steep and inclined parking area, the trail begins quite smoothly.
