The best part of this hike was the variety of environments along to 20 km length (if started from the main park parking lot). The trail was well maintained and easy to follow.

I would rate this as more of a moderate hike based largely on the length and as a reminder to people that it is the type oh hike to be sure to carry along some basic supplies and proper clothing because at the far end you are at least 8 km in from the nearest accessible road.

This is a great place for a nice walk along the river, through the varied forests and out to the lake shore. We went on a rare cooler day in August and it had a surpising, almost coastal, characteristic. This is also the best set of trails to see the salmon runs from as well which is what the Adams river is famous for.

This hike turned into a 20km hike as we left from the Roderick Haig Brown Parking lot which added the distance. Nice hike.. took the River Loop up the river and the Parker Ridge on the way back which loops back to the river. It is an easy hike but moderate in length. Trail is great and well maintained.

This trail is interesting and has mostly small elevation changes as it follows the Adams River upstream from the parking lot. The Adams River is one of the most important Salmon spawning rivers in BC. These fish fight their way upriver from Vancouver (Fraser River) in a spectacular effort that ends here after spawning every late September/October.

Easy trail with really friendly park rangers. During salmon season, be aware that there are bears in the area (you'll see a lot of scat). In October, on dominant salmon run years, it's a great place to hike and view spawning salmon (and take photos). The Adams River Salmon Society even gives some talks at the park.
