Scenic coastal route one way followed by a forest path and road back to the parking lot. Very enjoyable and not too difficult, as long as you're prepared for navigating amongst roots and rocks one way and elevation change the other.

easy 9km run. couple hills in houston

Very easy trail with views of the river on one side and farms on the other side. The only drawback, for me, is the inconsiderate pets owners who don't pick after their pets.

For me Thom is a great local workout hike....a grind if you like without being quite as steep as others around. You are rewarded with a beautiful view and the top and there is always a challenge to get up to the summit faster each time so it continues to offer challenge. I think most skill levels will appreciate the hike you just have to go at your pace. Easy to get to for a quick hike in the area though I don't think I'd drive out from the city just for it. water fountain at Sylvan trailhead spring-fall and porta potty which I think the city does a pretty good job of keeping clean.

Read the reviews! I did this hike back in 2016 with my husband and my brother. It is one of the best day hikes I’ve done in Canada but it wasn’t easy as many of these reviews have also stated. I’d say moderate to difficult. It is also a 10 hike along the coast. We had a gorgeous spring day for this and I have terrific memories of blue skies, sea life and the sound of crashing waves. A very memorable hike! Shout out to the blog ‘HikeBikeTravel’ for this most excellent suggestion.

We are weekend day hikers, and it took us 1 hr. each way with our dog, starting at Sylvan. Steep start turning intermittent and then steep again toward the Summit. Not for the faint of heart, 90% of the elevation gain occurs in 3km. Lots of shade from trees and a lovely view of Cultus at the top. A steep but lovely hike - would do it again.

Great trail - count in 2- 2 1/2hours at least - the part on the coast was not as easy as we thought

Biked this trail for the first time and it is beautiful. It’s an easy route with good signage. Do the Fort to Fort trail and grab a coffee, or whatever, in Fort Langley before heading back. Go early as the path gets busy later in the day.

easy run except for the two hills at the beginning.

Nice walk thru the woods. We saw a few birds and a rabbit. The kids ( under 5) really enjoyed it.

Good work out. We went on a cool day. Beautiful scenery and very well maintained.

The trail is 11km. I walked with my stroller my two year old and my 2 month old. there were some areas of slightly deeper gravel that was a bit harder to push through but completely doable. My two year old walked about half of the trail and sat in the stroller the rest. It was a beautiful trail. about 75% was in shade.

Nice short hike with great views at the top. Took the path from the bottom car park through the newly planted raspberry bushes and found the hidden track by diverting left just before the train track and crossing 40 meters further up. Would recommended if your looking for a nice afternoon walk with a great result at the end.

It’s a loop trail that goes around the lake and there’s lots of side trails to explore

It was a nice and easy trail

Quiet, great for our family and dog. Well maintained! Thanks

The views along the Matsqui Trail are amazing and very diverse. It is easy for hiking, biking, and trail running. And not to forget to mention the photography opportunities.

Trail was pretty torn up by horses that had been in a week ahead of us. Lot's of downed trees and mosquitoes were insane. Gorgeous scenery but the trail was not much fun at all.

Lots of options around these trails!

Great spot for a mildly strenuous trail run. The trail is in great condition and has just enough of an incline to make it a decent workout!

great walk! stroller friendly. the outhouse was gross you better off to bring your own toilet paper and pee in a Bush.
pack your bug spray the mosquito's were very bad, you get dived bombed if you stop for one second

amazing day hike. I like to do side trips up to the old iron mines. lots of sea life to sea and historical petroglyphs. a must do

Can anyone tell me how to get up to the lookout? would like to take a look!

Easy loop trail with little vertical. One end is blocked as it is private property, but you can walk next to the fence. Easy walk, most of it can be done with a wheelchair or stroller, very quiet loop trail. You can adjust the length too by taking one of the bypass loops.

Love this place!

Loved it!!! Had to continuously check the app a few times since we started on the wrong path a few times. Could be better marked! But gorgeous!

Love it! Fairly easy but has enough ups and downs to keep you active and working hard without being too easy, or exhausting.
