Cypress Mountain, Vancouver: 5 reviews and 5 photos

  Standing at the Cypress lookout in July 1995

While most tourists are encouraged by Tourism Vancouver to pay money to take a gondola up to the top of Grouse Mountain, if you have a car - forget it! Drive your car over the Lions Gate Bridge (from downtown Vancouver) and follow Hwy 99 northbound. Take the Cypress Provincial Park exit (a short 10 minute drive later), and you'll start driving up a very scenic road to the top of Cypress Mountain. Here I am in June of 1995 at the main lookout point on Cypress Mountain. On clear days not only can you see all of Greater Vancouver, but you can see as far as Mount Baker, in Washington state.

Be sure to come here on a sunny day for then you'll get stunning views of the city and the surrounding geography.

Also, Cypress offers skiing in the winter, and great hiking and mountain biking in the summer months. Either season, Cypress is a fun place to be!
