The trailhead on this map is in the middle of Vancouver Lake, so it's better to just go to the park by the lake and do an out -and-back from there. A lot of the trail meanders through a deciduous forest of cottonwood and alder, a cool and pleasant walk on a hot day that ends suddenly in a swampy area.

Not a hike. Just a walk along the lake. Definitely not impressive, compared to so much natural beauty in the area.
