      This region is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

      Cypress trails, for the most part, are unsanctioned, unmarked and the steepest, most technical trails on the North Shore.

      Cypress trails lend themselves to be easily shuttled because of the road access, but there are also great riding loops to be found. You can create these loops using the BLT Trail as the main climbing route accessing all the trails on the mountain.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      Shuttleable: YES
      Cypress Lookout google parking directions
      Access Info:
      Take Highway 1 West from the Lions Gate Bridge or the Iron Worker's Memorial Bridge. Head west into West Vancouver heading toward Horseshoe Bay. Take Cypress Provincial Park exit, drive up Cypress Bowl Parkway approximately 2 km from highway. You will come to the West Vancouver works yard on your right with an antique road grader on the side of the road and a small gravel parking lot on the left. Park in the small lot on the left.
