This is an easy short afternoon hike. I spent less than 2 hours plus small breaks at the two lookouts. Please wear closed-toe shoes coz some part of the trail is fully covered with roots and rocks. When you are leaving the low and high knoll lookout, just follow the same route you get up there. Have a lot of spaces for parking on gravel road.

Good exercise and I’ll do it again, but it feels wrong to hike up such a plain ugly hill when there are beautiful mountains and forests nearby. Convenient, quick and dirty though, sometimes that’s what you’re looking for.

This is not a safe trail and poorly marked makes it very dangerous and easy to be lost

Good shape trail. Not very well marked, but good experience

We enjoyed this moderate hike. There are a lot of signs warning you about bears in the area. We did see some scat on the trail but no bears. Nice expansive view from second knoll. Good spot to enjoy a snack and soak up some sun before the descent.

If you want to climb stairs to stay in shape, this is the place to do it, otherwise meh...

Hiked today, June 28/18. The first 15 mins the trail was boring but then it really picks up with awesome terrain and elevation. The views are great once you reach the upper knoll. The hike back down through low knolls was awesome. I’d visit again.

June 24, 2018- Perfect hike for us as it’s a slight steady incline and only steep in a few areas, especially as you get to the top. This allows you to get some exercise and enjoy the beautiful greenery. Moderate in distance and incline. Didn’t seem too busy for a Sunday but the parking lot was almost packed when we got there at 10:30am. My friend wore runners and was fine. Don’t need poles. Well placed markers for us casual hikers were helpful. Twice people told us they saw a bear, and once we had to turn back and go around, but we didn’t come across any ourselves. Didn’t get bitten by bugs and mostly covered so you shouldn’t burn. The view is so worth it! Lots of space to sit and have a bite. Most enjoyable hike. Will definitely do it again : )

This trail has become a weekly routine!! My new fave!

Great off leash area for my dogs. Good socialising with other dogs.

Great work out and view!!!

Could be renamed 'Burke Mountain, south & north summit' One of the nicest trails in the area, we remarked trail when snow started to get heavy and put markers to the north summit near the end of the trail map. 360 view. South Summit has partial view. 45 min logging road start from the gun range. Camped over night. 12 hours round trip, 23km total, 1600m elevation gain and 1290m on the North Summit. You won't be disappointed! Be prepared, not a well maintained trail.

Slight inclines, but nothing too strenuous. The most difficult thing is that there are bears and cougars in the area. There was a bear on the path on our way back to the parking lot. Read up on black bears and expect that you will see one on this park.

The only way to do this loop is clockwise as there’s a pretty steep climb between the falls. Do it the other way and you can only slide/fall down to keep with the trail. The trail is very well marked in my opinion. Would recommend wearing long pants. It can be a bit bushy in some places

Great moderate hike for a mostly overcast day. We did the loop clockwise, making for a tough grind right between the falls. Highly recommend bringing trekking poles to save your knees and back!

Did this today June 18/18.
was a pretty easy hike.. a bit of an uphill climb near the top but nothing to worry about. view is nice. overall 3/5

So grateful for those trail guides who have marked the trails so well. Even found markers in unexpected places. Beautiful hike even in the rain and hail!!

This is a very beautiful park, well marked and great pay off view with easy access. Very crowded tho so next time I would go mid week.

Did this hike this weekend(June 2, 2018). Nice trail. Start of the trail is not marked, but after several hundred meters it's marked good.
A lot of bears poo. When we back we meet one of this guy )) He was eating grass right near the trail(near the bridge).

My favorite quick hike in the Coquitlam area! Beautiful view and a decent work out. Bit of an incline for the last part of the trail.

It’s one of the best trails in BC. We hiked during weekend, not too much crowded and easily find a parking spot. High Knoll is definitely a great view. I highly recommended this trails including beginners, it’s fun and challenging

Great hike that gives you a good little workout. Fairly steady uphill climb the whole way but lots of changing terrain and well marked so it doesn’t feel like you’re just grinding away. There was still too much snow up top to get to the lakes so I’ll be back later on in the year to get the view!

Took me almost 2 hours to get up and just under an hour to come down. Definitely need hiking boots and wished I would’ve brought my hiking sticks.

Good trail but steep and full of switchbacks. Good cardio workout in the woods. Late May and the lake is still frozen and socked in with snow.

Nice hike, but no markings or signs for guidance. Thankfully someone else we ran into gave us directions how to get back. Ended up cutting through downhill mtn bike trails, eventually running into a bear at the powerline clearing. Good times.. I guess

What a beautiful flipping trail!! Not too hard. Not too long. beautiful lookouts. So pretty along the water.

We tried to do this hike last Saturday (April 21). It is a nice hike which goes up to the mountain. Unfortunately, in this park, trails are not very well marked so we bought the book "Burke and Widgeon a hiker guide" which has a super detailed description of each trail. Almost all time we walked in a water from streams and 3-4 times you need to cross a bigger creeks. A spare pair of socks was handy. Make sure your shoes are waterproof too. Unfortunately, we did not finish the journey. The last river to cross was too deep and the current is too swift. So we will come back later after snow melts. We did a loop to come back to the parking lot. Entire trip was 4 hours, 10 km with about 400 m elevation gain.
