From North Vancouver’s Cates Park was a hiking trail that followed the shoreline where once author Malcolm Lowry lived in one of the squatters’ shacks during the 1940s. He was the author of Under the Volcano that won the Governor General’s award. I discovered two plaques dedicated to the author along the route.
What made this pathway worth the hike, was capturing views of Indian Arm. While the lower and upper trails weren’t long, it was possible to continue north to Myrtle Park, opposite Strathcoma Park to extend the hike.
