This 8-km Hike Takes You To An Epic Lookout Point Less Than 1 Hour From Vancouver
Views of Bowen Island, Sunshine Coast, and Horseshoe Bay.
Dust off the old hiking shoes. There is an epic hike super close to Vancouver and you'll want to see what's waiting for you at the top. The hike is literally 30 minutes away from the city so you don’t have to worry about travelling far. This 8-kilometre Tunnel Bluffs hike is all you need for an unforgettable afternoon in the sun. Just bring lots of water, some snacks, and you’re good to go.
You can only walk aroundso many times before you need a change of scenery.
Tunnel Bluffs is a short 30-minute drive from downtown Vancouver which is nothing considering how long we usually spend in traffic.
Your new go-to hike is a steep incline from the Sea To Sky Highway. Eventually, it flattens out before you'll be greeted with a birds-eye view of Howe Sound but nothing in life ever comes easy.
Seeing the views of the ocean, surrounding mountain tops, and lush greenery is the best in full daylight.
If you happen to go on a really clear day, you will have views of the Bowen Island, Sunshine Coast, and Horseshoe Bay.
it's perfect if you don't want to go on a long road trip to check out these areas.
The hike's trailhead is located directly across the north end of a small parking lot along the Sea To Sky Highway.
You will see a map right at the entrance. We suggest taking a picture of it in case you get confused about where to go.
Within the first five minutes, you will reach a viewpoint where you can walk onto a rocky bluff to see views of Howe Sound.
After this, there will be a steep climb. Be sure to use the rope along the side of the trial to help balance yourself while you walk.
Don’t worry it’s not like this the whole way and it eventually levels out. That's how you know you’re close.
When you get to the top, stop and take it all in. Theand stretch as far as the eye can see.
Take a celebratory picture to show everyone what you just conquered.
The hike should only take you about two hours to complete.
