Summer 2018 Map

Today December 7, we started from parking lot at 9 am. We reached Lindeman in 45 minuted. The trail was moderately sloped and well maintained. But from Lindeman to Greendrop Trail was pretty challenging, not because it was steep, but because almost two third of the trail you have to walk is on uneven rocks. You have balance on rocks and find your way between red dots and you cant go fast. But it was worth going there. We reached Greendrop at 12:40, ate lunch and took 20 minuets break. It was so cold that my water bottle got frozen in few minutes. We returned to our car at 4:10 pm and it was already getting dark. It was Friday, we didn’t see any other hiker between Lindeman and Greendrop. Total two way distance is 12 km.

Good hike, finished in about 3.5 hours just to the lake and back from the lower parking lot. Gravel road but you don’t need a 4x4, and the trail head is a bit hidden. Overall the trail was in good condition, and a nice little lake.

Great walk minutes from Langley. Bring bird seed for the chickadees. Good for young kids and stroller friendly. Trail is hard packed gravel with a few boardwalk sections over the wetlands.

This is a good 10K power walk trail which I do regularly. Would rate it easy rather than moderate. As others have noted, avoid the horse poop. I’ve always found the horse riders polite. Remember it’s their trail and keep dogs calm and under control when the horses pass.

good grind

one of my favorites

Just a nice little walk.

A beautiful place in the heart of lower mainland. The trail goes through lush green forest and several beautiful streams, that ends at a small and quite lake. We hiked on November 16, a sunny Friday, surprisingly it wasn’t busy at all; met only one other couple in the whole trip, carrying bear bells was a good idea. The distance from the Trail head to the lake View Point, shown on my app was 6.5 km, so it is more than 13 km two way. Same is Elevation Gain: As trail goes up and down the hill several times to cross the streams, you should add at least 100 m extra to what it shows the elevation gain on the map. The slops are not so steep, that makes the climbing easy snd pleasant. I will suggest using waterproof hiking shoes and poles, as you will face few puddles and wet slippery places on the trail.
To find the Trail on google, search Sumas Mountain Trail Head. Coming from Vancouver at Highway 1, exit at exit 95 and turn left on Whatcom Rd, and quickly after crossing highway bridge turn right on N Parallel Rd. after two and a half km turn left to Sumas Mountain Rd. And stay on Upper Sumas Mountain Rd. The winding road will run about 9.5 km and then turns into a gravel road. That is where the trail head is. After coming down about 100 m on gravel road you will see a wooden pole on the right side of the road with very small (6 inch) green signs, showing bear, dog on leash etc. The gravel road is wide enough at that point to find a road side parking..

Always a good hustle to the top! The view is worth every minute.

Nice area but lots of horse poop. Horses have right of way and riders can be unpleasant towards pedestrians. Will not be returning.

Perfect for kids, feels like a different world in the middle of the city

Did this hike with my dad today and ventured on past Chadsey to the East lookout. Such an amazingly dense forest to wander through! The light shining through the forest and fog looked magical. I will share some pictures from today too.

Do this hike ATLEAST once!

This is a beautiful trail that we have walked a number of times but it is now tainted by the fact that someone broke into my vehicle yesterday (Nov 3/18) and stole my wife’s wallet. The lowlife also emptied the change from my ashtray. No windows were broken and the vehicle was locked up afterwards which leads me to believe that it was done with a slim jim (tow-truck driver’s tool).
I should mention that this was at the lot off McKinnon Cr.

Be cautious out there folks. We are seasoned hikers who slipped up and left something of value hidden away and not on our person. Nothing was left in sight. This was the job of someone who probably frequents this location looking to rip off hardworking families. Hopefully this headache doesn’t happen to you.

Good workout, trail is eroding quite a bit in places but is still in pretty good condition.
Quite muddy and slippery when it rains, I suggest using poles and possibly even crampons if attempting after/during any decent rainfall.

Nice easy hike. No great views, but a nice little loop around some 500+ year old Douglas Fir trees.

Exercise not a hike. Come to walk up some stairs and see some good looking people. No views.

my wife and I hike Abby grind once a week. a good place near by for our cardio exercise.

The hike up to Lindeman Lake is worth every second. The lake is stunning!

I did this hike today and the last time was about 4 years ago.... it has become very eroded, a lot of the trail has been blown out and lots of silty sand. Great view at the top but some trail love needs to happen here before I go back.

It’s was nice out so that made it better than anything else I’ve done lately

Great road bike area for my 7yr son while I walk the dog. A little noisy close to the highway and kinda bland scenery but not busy and still quite enjoyable

Nice easy walk for family

Loved the hike to Lindeman but got tired of the rocks pretty quickly on route to Greendrop. Unfortunately we went on a wet day which made trekking the rocks a slippery and slow process. Will do again but on a dry summer day.

Hiked down to this trail from the Watt Creek horse trail via the "hard" 0.8 km connecting trail a few days ago. It's a nice, easy trail. The mini loop to view the Seven Sisters is worth investigating (500+ years old Douglas-fir trees, up close and personal).

Watch out for the horse manure

Easy walk on well groomed path.

Great little path. lots of forest. a few lil creeks. nice walk.

Beautiful lake at the end, expect some stair climbing on rocks instead of stairs. Great hike, loved it.

I loved the experience
