Beautiful Forest walk

great trails for running, I went before the sun went down and the trails were clear and great for training.

good walk and also has a park for the kids at the end of the walk ...can be kind of confusing with so many ways to go

I went with a 5 year old and a 2 year old ....cant take a stroller so we didnt reach the falls but really nice walk

It's was really nice, and we had lots of fun! We saw different little places to swim and enjoyed the nature.

It's a good nature walk. Normal pace took me 43 minutes one way. It was nice to hear the river the whole way thru as it helped calm some nervous energy.

Great urban park with lots of variety! great for dogs early in the morning. watch out for bears in the spring and coyotes in the fall.

low elevation easy trail. but a great summer trail with the river to cool off in.
the falls have a pool below it if you feel courageous enough to jump in.

terrain is boring/urban BUT lake is stocked with fish and so in addition to ducks there are often cormorants and sometimes an eagle or two so that makes it a go to place when you just must find a bird or two

Made it to Dennet peak (South Burke peak) today but turned back before the North peak due to heat. Not a well travelled trail. Markers ok but just flagging tape. Bugs crazy a times and a bit over grown. Attempted to get to Dennet Lake but Trail was hardly travelled and difficult to follow.

We did this trail early in the morning and it was still busy. It was a nice walk although there were lots of puddles and the trail was narrow through a few stretches. When we got at the falls it was super busy. No way you could take a picture without having strangers in the background. lol
I would do this again in a few years maybe.

If your looking for something really easy this ones for you!

It’s nice cause it’s really shady, and right beside the bustling river

The Fall is a bit small but a waterfall none the less

I went it early July and it was still really muddy

Keep your dogs on leash at the top of the falls, mine went to the top and she slipped and slid all the way down... luckily she didn’t get hurt

If your looking for a nice easy hike this ones for you

But if your looking for something more challenging you will want to look at other trials in the area

Let’s be honest, this is a nature walk, not a hike but the waterfall reward makes it worth checking out for the veteran hikers. Parking was hard to come by on this holiday Monday and the trail was quite busy. There were loads of people in flip flops and although the trail was very muddy, they did just fine. The falls themselves are pretty but way too many people for my liking to visit on a weekend. I’ll stick to the more challenging hikes to thin out the herd.

Nice river access for dogs. A little muddy. Easily accessible. Can be crowded on a weekend.

Beautiful falls, only takes about 45 minutes to walk there (at a decent pace). Super easy, more of a walk than a hike.
Perfect outing for young families too, if you want to get out and enjoy nature without going overboard and having to carry your child half the way.
We went yesterday when it was quite hot out so it was perfect to cool off in the water once we reached the falls.

Pretty nice and easy trail. Encountered a black bear about halfway through the way back and it seemed used to being on the trail.

It’s nice and easy walk. It’s hard to believe this pristine water fall is located just backyard of residential area. I live in the area for over 25 years and lately it became too popular and seemed it has lost its tranquility.

Very easy and good for all fitness levels. 35 minutes each way. Loved walking next to the Coquitlam river....very therapeutic

Great spot for a quick and easy hike!!
Was fairly busy, but not "too" busy.
stopped for a snack at a little pool just off trail and watched some Steelhead smolts. Really neat to see the local ecology! There's some info at the trailhead regarding salmon spawn and what fish are in the river, so to actually see and be able to identify them was a treat!

There are also lots and lots of smaller trails offshooting from the main one. almost followed one out, until I realized it certainly wasn't the one I came up on.
I'll explore them another time for sure!

Only downside is that, as there are no garbage bins or toilets... you'll have to find a spot to squat.
Not hard to find one; there's lots around, but you might notice if someone's been there before you.
Seeing toilet paper left behind anytime I stepped of trail was rather disappointing.
If you do gotta go, bring your remnants with you please.

was good had a good afternoon with fam even saw a lil bear on the trail

It was a beautiful day for this short hike! The water is running high right now, so be careful around it, but the mud has nearly all cleared up during our hot spell. Easy, pretty hike to the falls!

Great hike to start off the hiking season. It’s pretty easy hike with not a lot of hills. Children can complete this hike with out a problem. Can get really muddy after a rain fall.
