Climb Summary


Cycling Cypress Bowl

Cypress Road is the little brother for climb, and big sister for view, of the Seymour Hill Climb which is 21 km/13 miles south of Cypress Road.  

The views to the south, of western  Vancouver  and the Salish Sea along the first 4 km/2.5 miles of this climb are breathtaking.  A testament to the extraordinary views from this venue is Barrett’s View (also known as High View Lookout), a large paved turn out and viewpoint just before the second of 4 hairpins leading to the top of the climb (at km 4/mile 2.4). As we see from the photos below, this IS the spot to get great views of the Vancouver/Salish Sea/Vancouver Island!

Barrett’s View - kilometer 4 of climb.

At several spots along the first segment of the climb we have extraordinary views of the many merchant and oil ships moored or moving about the bay.  But for the exceptional views of the Vancouver area from Cypress Bowl Road, the Cyrpress and Seymore climbs are very similar and as indicated above only 21km/13 miles from each other.

The road is bordered by thick forest as we climb.

We finish the climb at the Cypress Mountain Ski Resort.

One of our all-time favorit signs . . .

Roadway surface and traffic:  As with Seymour Mountain, Cypress Bowl Road is in excellent condition with little traffic offering a fairly steady 6.5% average graded.​
