A wonderful day trip for just yourself or the family.
Great walk. Almost all level and winding with both forest and open shoreline views. Some short moderate climbs. Great for history buffs as this is the railway bed for the former Stave Falls Power railway that serviced the Powerhouse from the Fraser River. Start at the south end of the trail or start at the Hayward (BC Hydro) beach park. If you want to make a real outing of it, visit the BC Hydro Stave Falls Power House Museum. It is more than worth the admission and there is a lot to learn about the fascinating history of this place.
Guy on a MUNI. Mountain unicycle.
Little steep in parts for a guy on a mun without brakes. Bit of hiking. Not too technical so a good cross country type ride. I only did the NW side.
Beautiful walk/hike with sections ranging from easy to moderate. Most of it is good year round but can get muddy and slippery in the rainy seasons.
We spent a few days geocaching along this great trail. The east side would be nearly imposible to bike. The west side was difficult in places for a bike, mostly tword the north end. Really enjoyed the trail over all.
