Great easy walk for all year round. Nice selection of trails, and some beautiful serene scenery. Nicely located geographically in the lower mainland so easy to get to from everywhere. Checkout the a video of the trail here: https://youtu.be/un4YnsKhTG0

Great area and trails are dog friendly. The ravine near the playground in the park does not connect to further trail. Visit the ravine spot then return to Hedley road and continue south down the hill and you can pick up the trail behind the tennis court. This is a hidden gem

beautiful get away but so close to home

A very nice, reasonably easy trail. Surprisingly beautiful w/ a cute little creek going through. Wasn’t busy at all on a Saturday afternoon and almost felt like a private stroll :) Easy/free parking. Dog friendly!

It's a nice stroll. Take your (leashed) dog; take your baby stroller; take your camera. Watch for eagles on the south-east section of the path. There's more wildlife than you'd think; just look for it.

lots of different types of beautiful views but none absolutely spectacular. It was easy and short which is what i was going for.

this trail is really fun and has a variety of off-trail trails (legal ones!) that are fun to spontaneously explore. also you can get a great workout.

Nice easy trail to do but lacking in signs and difficult to follow the loop and end up on the road and walk back to the car park. Nice tall trees to keep the trail cool.

Easy trail with gentle inclines and declines around a beautiful lake. Good for a relaxing stroll anytime of the day or an energetic run.

did this loop twice on a trail run today. as others are saying the power/pipe line part of the trail is boring and relitavley easy but ascending Nicole's trail gets the heart going and descending Mel's trail makes for some fun technical downhill

This is a really great loop trail, about half way there is a softball diamond with a fresh water tap beside the pool. Really great on a hot day my dogs loved it. Further along the trail, there is fresh water in the stream. We will definitely be back!

nothing special but still it has decent looks

It was easy and a little bit hard stairs.
I loved the big trees and lovley ravine beautiful!

Pretty easy trail I did several weeks ago. But beautiful lake!

Took my dog for a little stroll, she loved it! We started by walking down the stairs instead of the other way and walking up this time, it was a nice refresher.

Quick hike with my boyfriend, always beautiful. Much hotter during mid-day so I prefer the mornings.

It’s amazing

Really cute and nice short day hike. There were lots of off paths that led to little chill spots with the creek running below. The highlighted trail on the map follows a wider path so I chose to take the inside trail which was thinner and a lot more natural. Some spots were very quiet and serene, it was almost as if there was no city around me. If I didn’t have this app I don’t think I would have been able to do the whole loop as there are no signs and it’s quite easy to get turned around. I had to turn around near the beginning of the hike because the trail I was following suddenly ended, it was still a very beautiful detour. I will definitely be coming back to do this.

The forest trails are fun but the power and pipeline parts of the trail are woefully uninteresting. There are many small trails branching off as well.

Easy walk with multiple options for different loops and customized distance. Areas in the sun and shade. Parking is a bit limited. A bit busy with people on a sunny Sunday afternoon and some spots you can hear traffic noise.

Nice for easy hiking with children

Map is now incorrect as it looks like a section of trail has been washed out and now closed off near the Headly St corner/playground ... just walk through the playground and pick up the trail on the other side instead of going down behind the tennis courts and trying to get into that bit.

It's great to see a hidden gem inside a city. Didn't see any signs leading into the trail from the parking lot.

Great for stroller walks as well

We started at bottom of Nicole’s - so the tough part was at beginning rather than end. Where the trail starts on the map there isn’t any parking so better plan ahead

Beautiful view, the trails are boardwalks. Good for a short walk. I would not suggest this trail if you have large dogs
