Easy, year around trail. Nice scenery. The canyon is very beautiful. It took us 4-5 hours to finish the whole trip.

The top part of the trail is beautiful. I would not suggest to start where this map suggests because the first mile or two is very urban like walking by parking lots. Part of the trail washed out 30 years ago and was never rebuilt so you have to walk around high rise condos. Just past the condos is an underpass which would be a better place to start this hike in my opinion. Not sure if it's legal but cars were parked there and no signs prohibiting. That way you're not so tired when you reach the really beautiful parts of the hike. Other than that hike was easy through beautiful forest.

Loved this trail! Beautiful!

Lovely area. Note that you cannot yet from the suspension bridge to the trail suggested by the gps recording - the suspension bridge park is fenced off from the rest of the area. You need to come out of the suspension bridge park to get onto the trail. Worth doing both the suspension bridge park and the trail to make a day out.

If you start from park royal it is an interesting combo of urban/nature hike (at the beginning). As you go follow the Capilano river you pass through some condo areas and such. That is short lived as the trail is very nice and leads to the beautiful Capilano lake. The Cleveland dam at the top is a sight on its own! Highly recommend for anyone in the city looking to explore but not venture too far out of town.

Beautiful forest and waterways!

It was a nice, scenic, easy hike. More like a walk through the forest most of the time, with the exception of a few stairs and a couple short steep hills. I'd call it easy for most, maybe moderate if you have mobility issues. Again, just due to the steps and hills. Mostly flat though.

This trail really surprised me! I wasn't expecting so many lovely view points and such diverse natural habitat. While some may say it is an easy hike, I felt it was moderate if taken at a good pace. Take a moment on the Coho Loop near the hatchery to watching salmon jump. I will certainly do this hike again!

Can be a bit confusing for newcomers but all paths lead from and to the dam. Really lovely place and easy to access. Great trail running and some fishing spots too.

Beautiful hike. Did it on a rainy day though so we did need some rain gear. even the dog had a rain coat so we were good. beautiful scenery all along the river. went to the Capilano Suspension Bridge park as well, that was also pretty great

Good walk, right in town. Worth doing when parking and walking from ambleside
