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.

Enjoyed this trail today. Was worried about having a muddy hike but aside from a few puddles this trail was not bad.

Easy hike. But can get mucky in the fall/winter especially when crossing the little streams.

Easy walk. Great to get the family outdoors. A little hidden gem. Can’t wait to go there in the summer and catch some of the water pools. Car a coyote while on the trail

Nice and Easy Trail, can get a little muddy after rain, wear boots and you should be fine. It’s an unmarked trailhead in a residential area. Great views of the river.

Great Park. a bit of a maze though. Plenty of turtles in the lake and a frisbee golf course too.

Straight, easy trail although pretty muddy with streams and big puddles to cross this time of year. The falls are impressive. You can climb up to the top but I wouldn't try it in wet, muddy conditions. Bring waterproof boots!

Awsome local hike I couldn't believe to have such gorgeous Trail nearby with such a massive waterfall too bad my phone ran out of juice and I couldn't take so many pictures:)

not a very long hike. falls are small. trail a bit noisy due to many trucks on other side of river.

Absolutely amazing hike, the people who we met were friendly. The falls were astonishing.Highly recommended.

Did this with our 2 girls (4 & 6). The kids had a blast watching the spawning salmon, navigating shallow streams across the path, climbing on the rocks near the waterfall, and searching for the old car hidden in the forest. It was a nice fall day with lots of friendly people along the trail. I would recommend this for families and people wanting to get out for a easy trail walk.

it is very

Easy and tree covered most of the way. Seems most people are with dogs when we went. Coming back it was easy to take a wrong trail branch. Keep your head up and go right. Parking is on the street at the trail beginning. GPS sent us on the other side of Coquitlam River in error. Trail is on the East side of the river. The falls is small and disappointing but worth the exercise.. 9000 steps!

Good hike, very muddy in some areas ( June 2017) so wear good hiking shoes if going during wet weather. Trail is in a wooded area and gets dark pretty fast after sunset, watch out for bears as well!

Not overly busy as it was raining but with decent tree cover it wasn't much of an issue. Some muddy patches and the occasional spot where water flows over the trail but there is usually logs to help cross without getting wet. Wear some good shoes and keep an eye out for bears as they frequent the area

This is the largest park in Coquitlam, that you can spend many hours traversing the different trails, or do the perimeter in just one hour! There are many entry points around the park, all with free parking! Wide, accessible trails make this great for walking and biking. Dog friendly, and you'll find a lot of four legged walkers on these trails. The Coquitlam Animal Shelter is right next to the park on Mariner Avenue, and volunteer dog walkers are always out and about with the pups. This park offers a rich, diverse ecosystem. There is wildlife, even deer and the occasional bear at various times of the year, but I have never seen anything other than birds. Lots of birds! There are two small, beautiful lakes in the park with benches strategically placed for optimal viewing. A perfect spot to stop and enjoy a picnic lunch. This park is easily accessible by bus with at least three routes going straight past the park.

Heavily trafficked is an understatement. Don't expect any peace on a warm day, especially at the falls. I didn't even bother with a picture there were so many people there. The trail is decent enough, as wide as a sidewalk in a lot of places, yet somehow people still manage to crowd you when you meet. Not one dog was on a leash, but they were all friendly...so that's good I guess? Long story short, I've done it once and won't be back.
