Dorman Point Trail
The Dorman Point Trail is a 2.4 km out-and-back hiking route on Bowen Island that is located right near the ferry terminal and will provide you with amazing views across to the mainland. While the route is short, it is also a steep route up to the lookout, so be prepared to break a bit of a sweat. Bring some binoculars and keep an eye out for eagles that are sometimes spotted in the area.

Route Description for Dorman Point Trail
The Dorman Point Trail is a short and steep trek that will take you uphill from the area around the Snug Cove Ferry Terminal—up to the point where you can enjoy a nice view across the water to the mainland. The trail initially follows a wooden boardwalk before transitioning to a dirt pathway that climbs up through the forests of Crippen Park. Once you reach the top of the trail, you can gaze out through the tree cover and watch the ships as they come and go from Horseshoe Bay. After taking in the views, head back down the trail and head into town for some more exploration of Bowen Island.
