Love this spot. perfect for a day hike with lots of beautiful spots to picnic, meditate, stretch. It's right along the river so saw a few people with rods and a couple of kayakers coming down the river. I saw lots of fresh mtn. bike tracks and dog walkers.

Lovely easy trail by the beautiful rushing Adams River. My puppy and I did the lower trail to stay by the River. Take the side trail to the small canyon Sample the wild strawberries! Popular trail so it gets busy

Lovely hike, moderately challenging. Packer trail is less busy than lower trail along the river. Always be prepared for bears!

Awesome. Challenging at parts but rewarding. We went early(10am) on a Monday and it wasn’t too busy until on our way back. Still wasn’t too bad. Took us roughly 4 hours to get in and back out

Beautiful warm day. Trail is muddy in sections, some icy snow in the shade, but trail conditions are quite good. Great early spring hike if you’re itching to get out where there is no snow!

Trail run on Nov. 28 up the Packer Trail to the end loop, then back along the River Trail (exactly 15 km). Trails were a bit wet and slippery, but no snow. Scent of dead salmon is still heavy. Starts off nice and wide on either trail (the upper Packer Trail or the lower River Trail). Towards the end of the loop, it changes to a single track and has a little bit more rock. The nicest views are at the gorge, in my opinion, but the trail does skirt along the river and offers many photo ops.

Ran this trail a couple of weeks ago. Hands down, my new favorite trail. Absolutely beautiful scenery. The trails are well maintained and great for running (not a lot of roots or rocks).

Awesome hike, took us a while because we stopped to take pictures and look around. Amazing to see when the salmon are spawning

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 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.
