Located on the rocky slopes above Eagle Harbour in West Vancouver lies a spectacular view from Eagle Bluffs. Most hikers access Eagle Bluffs from the downhill ski area of Cypress Mountain as this route passes some other great scenery, including Cabin Lake and Black Mountain.

From the parking lot of the downhill ski area, walk towards the wooden sign board that has a map of the trails around the Cypress Mountain area. A new trail to Black Mountain was built in 2004 and more recently has had some changes made to the route. It is this trail we will follow to reach Eagle Bluffs. To reach the start of this trail, walk towards the nearest set of chair lifts and watch for a trail that leads into the trees on the left side. The trail will pass near Yew Lake so this can be used as a reference point on the map.

Meet at the Cypress mountain parking near the wooden sign board.
