  • We did the east canyon trail. Lovely little 2hr hike. Pretty easy other then one part heading down tothe fower falls. It is a pretty step downhill part. But it had beautiful view.  more »
  • Had a nice hike on the lower falls trail. Easy trail and beautiful scenery. Would recommend. Would love to hike other trails in the area.  more »
  • Great park, the trees are beautiful, just remember there's no cell reception (the is cell reception in little pockets). Will be very busy in the summer and the gates do lock at night. Nice place to go for walks and take your dog out. Recommend wearing wet shoes. Sometimes you'll see film crews out here.
  • This park is gorgeous, not far away from town (Greater Vancouver), with one of the most beautiful lakes in BC and a creek with clear & fresh streaming mountain water great for kids' fun. Also, at the peak of the summer season, it's not crowded at all. Only some patience is necessary in finding a spot to park your car, but it's still achievable. My family absolutely loves it.
