Description:

Eagle Bluffs near Black Mountain in Cypress Provincial Park is considered by many the best vantage point on Vancouver’s North Shore. Perched on the rocky bluffs, you have jaw-dropping views of Howe Sound, Bowen Island, Eagle Harbour, Vancouver, Point Roberts, Mount Baker, and beyond. The hike to Eagle Bluffs also takes you to the two summits of Black Mountain, and offers a chance to see, or even swim in, the beautiful Cabin Lake – along with numerous other subalpine lakes you will pass making your way along the serene forest trail.

Eagle Bluffs is a popular day hike for many locals (and for good reason), the first 20 minutes of the hike might be quiet challenging for some people but after that, it will be quiet easy for everyone. This hike is not long but it's a great way of going out and exploring BC. 

Logistic

 We will leave Vancouver around 7 am and we'll get there around 7:30 depending on the traffic. We will hike up and hopefully get to the "Eagle bluff" by 10:00 am depending on our pace. We will spend some time enjoying the view, eating snacks, socializing, taking pictures and will head down and hopefully finish around 12:00 pm.

Email me if you have any questions!

Cheers
