Cypress Falls – Hikes near Vancouver

Cypress Falls – Hikes near Vancouver

If you’d like a fun mini adventure to find the best waterfalls near Vancouver, then you should go and take a peek at Cypress Falls Park in West Vancouver. The first waterfall is less than 10 minutes walk from the car park, so this could be good for walkers as well as non-walkers, grannies and toddlers.

We stopped here on our road trip from Lillooet back to Vancouver. Marc and…

I’m happy to go on long hikes to reach pretty waterfalls. However it is also fantastic when you can visit such a beautiful natural phenomenon with virtually…
