Cypress Trestle Bridge
A trestle bridge has been built in West Vancouver near Cypress Bowl Road that connects the Mountain Path trail network and offers scenic views of the city. The inspiration for the impressive looking bridge has been taken from several other trestle bridges throughout the Province, including those along the Kettle Valley. The trestle bridge opened in December 2021 and is part of the larger plan to expand the Mountain Path trail network to connect several neighbourhoods in upper West Vancouver.
The path begins at the Cypress Pop-up Village just before the first hairpin corner of the Cypress Bowl Road. There’s ample parking and a great view from this location, however the hike to the trestle bridge is a roughly 2km, uphill walk along a gravel path. The trail begins alongside the Eagle Lake Access Road.
How to get to the Cypress Trestle
You can also walk to the trestle bridge from higher up starting at Chippendale Road on the north side of Cypress Bowl Road. There is a very limited amount of parking at this location. The trail from Chippendale Road to the trestle is paved.
