Explore Vancouver Along the Waterfront Renaissance Trail

At Red Lion Hotels, we think Vancouver summers are ideal for outdoor adventure. Among the countless Vancouver attractions, you can begin your adventure along the Waterfront Renaissance Trail, stretching five miles from Esther Short Park in downtown Vancouver to Marine Park. This paved riverfront path is perfect for walking, jogging, biking or rollerblading, and is home to some of the best sunset views in Vancouver.

Wide enough to accommodate bikes and strollers, the path is perfect for families or individuals. The trail boasts stunning views of the I-5 and I-205 bridges. As you progress, you’ll come across The Old Apple Tree, Marine Park and Kaiser Viewing Tower. With shops and restaurants along the way, the trail offers great places to picnic and play, or simply take in the Vancouver views. The trail is easily accessed by trailheads located at Wintler Community Park, Marine Park, Waterfront Park and downtown Vancouver.
