Hike to Cypress Falls in West Vancouver

3.1 Miles Total - 400 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally added by John Entwistle

A quick hike in West Vancouver to a secluded waterfall hidden in the trees. Usually much less busy than popular spots like Lynn Canyon and Capilano! 

Drive the the end of Woodgreen Pl in West Vancouver, and you will pass the tennis courts on your right. You will see a little dirt road that heads up into the woods on your left - drive up this road ~30 feet into the parking lot. From the Parking lot, hike up the trail beside cypress creek (this is very well marked).

When you get to the bridge (~500m into the hike) DO NOT CROSS THE BRIDGE. Instead, proceed up the west side of cypress creek - This is the best way to get to the falls. 

The hike should take you 30-45 minutes up to the falls, and make sure that Cypress Creek is always on your right and it is pretty hard to get lost.

Swimming hole

Thanks for the share! I'm always looking for new swimming holes in the summer.
