Perfect day for this trail. It's a pretty easy hike and we hung out at the beach area for a few hours enjoying the sun.

    We did this trail this afternoon, Jun 28. It's a very easy trail and very flat. It's much quieter and easier than Jug Island trail, but the view at the end isn't as nice. Near the end of the trail you kind of just continue on the rocks... we got confused and kind of went off trails but ended up backtracking and figuring it out. About 1 hour roundtrip.

      You cannot see Deep Cove from Admiralty Point! You can see Boulder Island, Cates Park, Burrard Inlet, and Barnet Marine Park.

        Great fun trail to walk. We bought our offroad stroller...it was challenging lots of rocks and alot of carrying the stroller up the rocks and roots but still a fun trail. I wouldnt bring a off road stroller if I were alone.

          The trail is really rough - exposed roots and stones almost the whole way. Think twice before hiking with children or, babies, or anyone who isn’t very sure-footed.
          Honestly, the views aren’t that great ...

            Perfect trail for beginners. Rocky outcrops at the end can be slippery if wet. No need for hiking boots.

              Very easy and short walk. Can stop and have sit on the rocks at few spots. Kinda expected more from the view at the point though. If you go the other way you get to Jug island - the trail is a little more challenging and the view is more scenic.

                This was a perfect hike for anyone looking for something easy, short, and beautiful that is still close to the city.

                  Found it to be a very easy hike for myself as a avid hiker. Flat for the most part with few big roots/rocks in the way. Takes about 30minutes each way walking at a medium-fast pace. Overall enjoyed the constant great views and small beaches to stop at and have a picnic. Would be a good hike for people who are unable to do some of the other hikes in Greater Vancouver due to problems of stairs or because of the length of the hike. Waheguru.

                    Great hike! Super easy terrain with a couple of uphill sections near the end. Tons of cool spots to explore off the trail on the little rocky beaches when the tide is out. Super dog friendly too.

                      A great hike that's close to the city. I brought along my small dog that doesn't usually come with me on more difficult hikes and she loved it.

                      No chance of getting lost, well kept and a great place to relax and get away from the city without driving too far out.

                      Would recommend!

                        My family hiked this trail yesterday. We were surprised by the amount of heavily exposed tree roots as well as large rocks on at least 50% of the trail. We read all of the comments attributed to this trail so were expecting some obstruction. However, we thought the trail rating of 'Easy' was too conservative. We stopped to talk to a couple of senior ladies who felt the trail rating was also too lenient. These ladies were well-prepared with hiking poles, packs and good footwear so they weren't out for a stroll in the park, so to speak.
                        On a positive note, this location is beautiful. The view points offer spectacular views of North Vancouver, Burnaby, and Downtown Vancouver. This trail is easy to get to and allows you to experience the stunning natural environment.

                            We hiked to Admiralty Point on May 14. Was surprised at the amount of larger rocks and exposed roots on the trail as we had been expecting something a bit flatter. Still a pretty easy trail, but good to note that it's not completely flat. You can peek through the trees to the water on most of the hike, and the views from the Point were gorgeous!

                              This is a great, easy (for the most part) hike to tackle if you've only got a couple of hours. Easily one of my favourites in the area. If you decide to continue past Admiralty Point to Burns Point, the trail's a bit more challenging, particularly the slope down to the end point itself, but still manageable for beginners.

                              Be aware that there are sections throughout that move over large rocks and roots. It's definitely an easy hike, but more a hike than a walk - just a heads-up for anyone seeing the same rating as something like Burn's Bog and expecting a flat path!

                                  Just done it today! As a senior I found it very doable.
                                  Saw a plaque of a declaration, a 99 years lease by the fed .....and is now expired.
                                  Can anyone tell me how to find out more about it?

                                    Such a great hike! We did it with a toddler and a baby, both being worn in baby carriers. Gorgeous views, and the beach at the end is perfect to sit and throw rocks in the water. This trail would be do-able with a proper trail stroller, there is one little hill that would be more challenging (big rock, lots and lots of big roots). Definitely easier with a baby carrier though! :)

                                        Awesome hike for beginners with lots of fun little view points to explore. Jump off the path down to the rocky beaches and look around at the purple starfish and views of Barnet beach across the waterway. Fun to do in the rain too.

                                              Please note, dogs are not allowed off leash anywhere in Belcarra. We almost got ticketed. I think the description needs to be amended to reflect this.

                                                  We did this hike today after doing the Jug Island Beach trail and thoroughly enjoyed the easy pace and relatively flat topography. I only wished that I had brought along my field guides to common mushrooms and coastal wildflowers. It would be a great hike for a family.
