This short woodland walk around Beaver Lake weaves between long-ago-logged stumps, new growth, and some of the park's remaining large cedars and Douglas firs. A pedestrian bridge crosses busy Stanley Park Causeway and connects to more options for easy walks. Great trail for joggers. Paid parking available.

Easy walk - rather than a hike. Suitable for all age groups. Beaver Lake, is a wetland feature unique to Stanley Park. Beaver creek, and encircling the lake, offers views of wildlife and native and introduced vegetation.

Pretty simple hike around Beaver Lake before crossing over the highway and walking through a more forested area. Trail is mainly dirt but portions are paved. Went on a Saturday morning and only saw a few people. Nice way to get into nature without leaving an urban area. 4/6/19

Lots of trails in the park to choose from, I have to say that Beaver Lake is more like a marsh now and is much smaller then you think. Not as exciting as lost lagoon which is also attached to the park.
