Beautiful forest to hike through, although we did find that the map wasn't quite consistent with the actual trail itself. A perfect way to spend a day though.

We originally were on the Arrowhead which led into the North star. This forest hike is fairly easy and for those that love nothing more than hiking through the forest in beautiful British Columbia

Nice trail! We started at the trailhead located at the end of canyon creek road just off highway 95. Very steep at the beginning but levels off quite quickly.

We accidentally missed the trail head (it’s a tiny 6X6” sign on a tree at the start of the side road) and incidentally walked nearly 45 minutes up the service/logging road before turning back around. Found the trail head, and had a great time hiking up. It’s quite steep, and probably not meant to be hiked in winter. Haha. I think maybe some people have been on the trail recently, but the farther we went, the more convinced we were that we were following an animal highway, and not a human path . Because of our late start and sunset constraints, we only hiked about 1km up. We found a cool old wooden structure and an impressive cliff face; got some great photos out of that. Hiked back down as the sun was setting and got boots full of snow. Definitely a great adventure! We are absolutely going to do this hike again during the summer and go all the way to the top.

This is a good hiking trail, smooth with no steep climbs. It is fairly narrow and designed for mountain biking, so better hikers when bikers less likely be there. I did it on Friday afternoon in September and only people saw on whole trail was group three bikers. Fair amount of poison oak, so make sure you know how recognize it.

steep hill at the beginning but well worth the challenge. incredible land scape with a great at the end , mountain goats. wear the appropriate gear and bring bug spray , use whistles on trail to alert possible bear sightings.watch for the odd bike going through. Have a blast and enjoy some of the most prestige and wild terrain.

Trail is pretty if you're already in the area, but come on. A 2k trail located up an 8k, filling-loosening dirt road is not really worth it.

Did this with my spouse and two dogs. Great way to spend an afternoon out in the woods. This particular loop is mostly forested and a good mix of sun/shade. Expect a fair bit of up and downs but no really heavy climbs or descents. We did it towards the end of July and the mosquitoes were bad. Didn’t see anyone out hiking, did run into several people out mountain biking (which these trails are also used for). Best to try to listen for them coming and move aside. Made a bit of a detour from the route and stopped down at Cedar Lake #2 to have a rest and let the dogs swim (no dogs allowed at Cedar Lake #1, no problem, I’ll hike to the quieter more private one). I would highly recommend as it’s not far off the intended route and it’s gorgeous. Pictures provided. Great loop and would do it again, however, Moonraker in general is tremendous and has so much to offer that when I do return I’ll most likely try something completely new.

Easy trail with a nice payoff of a great view of lake and mountain. Bugs were more plentiful here than at the campground. We tried out the rope swing at Cedar Lake on the way, which was a cool rush.

This trail is meant for mountain biking (so much fun, highly suggest it). Be very careful if hiking on it! The bikers are moving fast!

We started from the trailhead at the end of Canyon Creek road. The start is very steep but the rest of the trail is moderately difficult. Lookouts are incredible and the trail was easy to follow. Lots of access to other trails in the Moonraker trail system. We saw a male mountain goat hanging out under the pole line which was a great treat! No signs of bears along the canyon but lots of fresh scat once we were more inland. Spent about 5 hours on the trails and only ran into 4 other hikers.

Up to the uninteresting summit of Table Mountain is almost exactly 4km with around 1250m of vertical. Three's some great views along the way, especially at the rocky outcrop just before the summit. The trail is in very good condition and very much a trail, easy to follow. Today, at the summit there was some patchy snow, with much more snow covering the trail to Navy Peak. I was wearing trail running shoes and didn't fancy getting soaked with mid-shin (or higher) soft snow. Going as slow as a snail on the way up (first hike of the season). Wobbly legs on the way down. Total moving time around 4hrs. Temp in the high 20s.

Easy walking trail in the woods passing by small lakes. Area is mainly used by mountain bikers, but accommodating for hikers too. Wasn’t many opportunities for views out of the tree line. But it’s a nice area with many interconnected trails.

Easy trail, looks more interesting to do in mountain bike. Mosquitos ++ near the second lake (2019-05-14). We came back by the north star trail to complete a loop. There's a swimming rope to jump in the cedar lake that look pretty nice to do in the summer!! Leila out

We just did the 8-9 kms which ended at the last look out then returned back. Nice walk but more strenuous than it indicated but that’s ok. No goats sighted and only 4 other hikers on route. It was a pleasant workout.

When walking this trail yeild to downhill traffic on mighty Quinn and gold rush. These are high speed biking trails and users will not expect to see pedestrian traffic.

Went on August long weekend and did the whole loop as just a hike. We parked at the Gudjonson Trailhead and walked South. The canyon lookout was beautiful! But the trail goes through dense forest so make sure to bring mosquito repellent. Would definitely only recommend for mountain bikers or if you want to do lake activities, to park at the other trailhead.

A nice walk through the woods that eventually opens up on some interesting and exciting views of the canyon. These trails are primarily used by mountain bikers, but make great hiking trails too. Well maintained. Watch for wildlife in the area.

Solid trial. Did this loop counter clockwise. There are a few places you have to check your map to stay on the correct trail.
