Beautiful loop around the trail. Part of the trail is closed due to poor conditions

Absolutely a beautiful hike. We did the hike on Sunday January 20, 2019. Perfect weather, very easy to moderate hike. Very well maintained and well marked. Recommend to do.

Hike/run took 1 hr 50 min.

Last time I hiked this trail was 30 years ago - much has changed. Crushed gravel laid on potentially muddy sections, bridges over creeks and hand railings on steep side slopes. Great accessible trail for all abilities.

I learned 2 things today that reacquainted me with the Westcoast rain; 1) touch screens on cellphones don’t often work and 2) OR Foray Rain Jacket and matching rain pants work awesome!

Easy trail. Not much for views or amazing vistas, but perfect for those times when you have only a couple of hours and want to stretch your legs, get some fresh air. I've done this trail at least a dozen times and still enjoy it. We usually go clockwise around the lake to get the minimal bit of elevation out of the way first. Sometimes we pack a lunch to enjoy at the picnic area at the north end of the lake.

It typically gets quite busy, so we usually try to get on the trail early. Lots of people, lots of dogs (about half of which are running off-leash). The busy-ness is the only reason for my rating of 4/5 stars. The trail itself is great.

FYI West Buntzen Lake trail is closed. You can detour via Lakeview Trail but it adds about an hour, is steeper and has no view of the lake.

It was a great hike to do- nice views and not too busy. Took about 1 hour and 40 minutes to go halfway and back based on closures. Lots of families with kids and pets so more of an easy-moderate hike.

Our family of 8 had a great adventure here! We chose to go clockwise around the lake. Starting with the difficult, and finishing with easy terrain. Construction of a bridge repair made for an extra hour detour. We were slower than most hikers due to little feet. Took 4.5 hours.. We would recommend going to the right (counter clockwise) instead, reach the beach at the end of the lake, then turn around and return the same way you came. Significantly easier, more scenic, and shorter by far. We all had sore feet and were thrilled to see the parking lot.

Trail work happening on the lower portion of this trail made this trail a little busier than expected. The west side is so much nicer than the east side. Kind of wish we had returned the way we came instead of completing a loop.

Warning: the west side is currently closed to repair a bridge, so you’re detoured to the lake view trail. Which is gorgeous (including an epic waterfall view), but definitely heed the warnings of how steep it is.

Great single track trail running. Ran the loop twice. Some nice elevation gain that adds a nice challenge without killing the legs. It’s a shame the park doesn’t open until 8 am, would be nice to get out and run first thing in the morning.

Excellent time. Enjoyed the well maintained trail. A good balance of wooded trail on one side and more open on the other side. Even though kind of a rainy day it didn’t dampen a great outing. We’ll be back likely when sunnier. Come early as parking could be a challenge. Took us about 2.5 hours at a steady pace.

Great loop hike weaving through forest next to the lake. On the scale, slides toward moderate on the easier side due to some inclining sections. We did this in 2.75 hours walking at a good pace and stopping for pictures. We hiked it in the rain and loved it. I would come back on a hot day to add in some swimming.

I hike this trail a lot. Some nice long uphills and a few downhills, but generally an easy hike. Great swimming at the north end in summer. A couple of friendly ravens there too.

very steep areas. the rocks beside the water falls I did slip but was caught. was beautiful but difficult

Great winter hike or early morning hike before work. Busy in afternoon. Dog friendly. long enough to feel like you went on a hike.

Dozens of laps over several years, always a good hike & I love to pack some power snacks to have a decadent little lunch at the North beach. Highly recommend clockwise no matter what people say

really nice hike easy and friendly for dog, 2.5hours

Great walk, we have done this many times. We even did a vlog of our walk. Check it out on our channel J&M Jaunts on YouTube.

Beautiful lake. The trail was well maintained and not crowded at all. Took around 2.5 hours total to go around the whole lake. Mostly shaded which is nice on a hot sunny day. Didn't feel like a real hike though since there wasn't a viewpoint at the end, it was more of an exercise/walking trail. Perfect trail for dogs.

Loved it. Dogs enjoyed it even more - lots of places for them to swim.

Beautiful walk, mostly shady. Lot’s of spot for swimming. I recommend to get there fairly early in the day, as the parking is very limited. We had to walk 40 min to actually start the hike

Wonderful hike. Great variety of scenery.

great trail. Not for beginners, friend of mine had to rescue someone who fell down the slope beside the waterfall. A 21 year old hiker also fell from the rocks on the falls and died not to long ago.

Great hike with hard and easy spots, wonderful workout, beautiful scenery. I wish everyone followed the dog on leash law on this trail, as some of the narrow lanes can be difficult to tread when dogs come running at you.

This is my favourite hike

Lovely trail, we thoroughly enjoyed it!

Beautiful and easy

A really good hike! Not too hard, not too easy, just perfectly in the middle. At times it can get steep but has straight and downhills as well. Did it with my parents and finished around 3.5 hours later.
