Tunnel Bluffs Inaccessible

A 30-minute parking restriction near the trailhead to the popular Tunnel Bluffs trail has been put in place. The Ministry of Transportation (Facebook | Twitter) and Sea To Sky Highway Investments (Facebook | Twitter) put up the 30-minute parking signs at the Tunnel Point parking area on March 9, 2020. They would also like to remind the public that parking along the Sea To Sky Highway is not permitted and crossing the highway is illegal.

Unfortunately, these restrictions make the current hiking route to Tunnel Bluffs inaccessible and there are no reliable trail alternatives with adequate parking at this time.

Vancouver Trails will provide an update when more information becomes available.

Seymour River Suspension Bridge

As of December 20, 2018, the new Seymour River Suspension Bridge is open and once again, the hiking and mountain biking trails on the east and west sides of the river are connected. This includes trails such as the Fisherman’s Trail and the hiking route connecting multiple trails known as Two Canyon Loop.

The approximate coordinates of the suspension bridge in North Vancouver are: 49.341853, -123.001962

There has been no crossing at this point in the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve since the former Twin Bridge collapsed in 2014 after a rock slide blocked the river just down stream.
