Spirit Trail

Once complete, the Spirit Trail will connect the communities of Horseshoe Bay and Deep Cove with a continuous, relatively flat pathway for walkers and joggers, cyclists and in-line skaters, and people with mobility aids. The West Vancouver portion will provide a connection between the Lions Gate Bridge and Horseshoe Bay.

Trail Etiquette

  • Helmets are required for bikers, in-line skaters and skateboarders
  • Keep to the right of the trail and only pass on the left
  • Use the trail with caution and watch for cyclists, walkers, joggers, skateboarders, in-line skaters and people with mobility aids
