Walk from Snug Cove to Bowen eBikes

Hello traveller, you’ve just made it off the ferry, and have heard tale of a mystical business, high atop Cates Hill that will rent you an eBike. But the journey is long, and you don’t know how to get up there. Google maps, just says walk the road, but that is wrong! That’s what this post is all about, the (not so secret) secret path towards our home business.

Basic Information:

Duration: 19-25min UPHILL walk.

Stair Count: 4 sets. (let us know how many you counted when you arrive)

Water Stations: Zero

The orange path shows a shortcut to our business. As always, this map is not to scale, and just an artistic rendering. Please don’t trespass.
From the ferry terminal, keep walking straight up Bowen Island Trunk Road.

Walk through the 4 way stop until you see a totem pole.

Head up the path at the totem pole.

After climbing your first hill and staircase, keep walking up towards Bowen Island’s Municipal Hall.

See that Building? That’s the Municipal Hall! Congratulations, you’re 1/2 way up the daily commute of commuters on Cates Hill.
Walking beside the Municipal Hall, you’ll see a sign for Cates Hill Neighbourhood. Head up your 3rd set of stairs!

You are entering a residential area. Please respect our neighbours and stay off of private property.

Passing through the Twin Towers, a path will diverge in front of you. Go up and to your right. You’re nearly there.
Take the final and 4th set of stairs on your right.

After the final set of stairs we are the 2nd house on your left.

You have now arrived via walking at 965 Seaview, sweaty, happy, and enjoying the view.
