What you'll do

This experience was made for the rainy season!!
We begin at the Capilano Pacific trail, the opposite side of the Capilano suspension bridge. Greeted by enormous evergreens and great tall mossy maple trees, the sound of the river is present immediately as we gently wind along the ridge 350 feet above the river below.
A easy path guides us through dense and spactactular rain forest.
Loaded with waterfalls, wildlife and beautiful trellis and bridge work.

We arrive on top of the great Cleveland Dam with sweeping views of the famous Vancouver Lions,
Grouse Mt. tram and the beautiful
Capilano River below.
A round trip will take 120mins.
Other things to note
Dress appropriately for a forest walk.
Bring a small snack and water.

I've been hiking and exploring West Van for over 30 years covering vast trail systems and beautiful beaches. The dense Coastal Rainforests have been my cherished playground for years.
I have spent endless hours and seasons wandering in wanderlust through the hidden trails and local beaches of West Vancouver BC.
from the enormous 1000 year trees to smallest and most delicate blue-green lichens and moss, l cherish and will share it all with you!

I'm charismatic and love showing off all the amazing spots only a local would know.
The Capilano Pacific Trail is certainly my favorite trail to hike of all!

Natalie was amazing! You can see her true hiking passion & her knowledge of the forest & her love of sharing all the beauty that nature has to give. She explained many things from bear & coyote paths to different plants & life forms. You can see with Natalie that she truly was fully engaged with us & not just on “robotic mode”. She’s warm, knowledgeable & we highly recommend her to anyone from young families to older novice hikers.

Natalie is such a blast to go hiking with. She knows her stuff and is super funny and entertaining. She even gave us some of her special forest balm that she made herself. All in all it was an easygoing hike with amazing views and great company!

Hiking experience with Natalie was amazing! Did two hikes in a row and couldn’t wish for a better trail and emotions, except having more time to do few more hikes :) If you’re in town and wanna check the local trails with someone experienced and a great nature lover, you’ll have the best time with Natalie. Happy hikes!
