Also known as the Caren Range, Spipiyus Park is north of Halfmoon Bay on the Sechelt Peninsula. It protects pockets of old-growth forest, prime habitat for the marbled murrelet. There are hiking trails that lead to Mount Hallowell with views of the islands and fjords of Pender Harbour, the Strait of Georgia and Vancouver Island. There is a fire tower located here that has recently been restored and may be one of the only remaining ones in the province.
