Hiking adventures beckon as soon as visitors to Bowen Island get off the ferry in Snug Cove.
The terrain is forested and hilly, but there are well-maintained trails suitable for every fitness level on "The Rock," which is slightly smaller in area than Manhattan Island. Exploring Bowen Island on foot is a pleasure since more than half of it is designated parkland, and the environment is clean, green, and serene.
Right from the ferry dock, hiking up to Dorman Point is a great way to get a sense of Bowen Island's geography. The 2.5km/1.5mi hike takes about 1.5 hours return. While there are some steep climbs, reaching the summit of this arbutus tree-strewn plateau offers a striking view of Whytecliffe Park in West Vancouver across the Queen Charlotte Channel. Also visible to the southwest is the University of British Columbia (UBC). Dorman Point is a lovely spot for a picnic.
