An unassuming walk in the woods, the Lions Bay Loop provided a light and informative tour with an abundance of views of the beautiful Howe Sound.
The nearness to the highway bothered us less than we had anticipated, though it is a nearly constant presence. One of the joys we discovered on the walk was that the community of Lions Bay had provided information cards on the various plants and animals along the trails. We learned about the different ferns, witches butter, salal and oregon grape, and much more, including their traditional uses. The trail meanders along and is connected with several other side trails that we did not explore but do take advantage of the various lookouts!
This is a nice one to do for a quick escape into nature with the added bonus of learning more about your surrounding environment.
