Easy loop hike with some elevation along the west side of the lake, making it super fun to mix up trail running and walking. I love bringing a lunch and eating on the floating dock that overlooks the lake, near the car park (if it’s not full of fishermen). There are some great swimming spots along the east side, so I recommend wearing a bathing suit, going for a dip, and walking off the wet in the summer months!

Enjoyed it today with my 10 year old son. The west side of the loop is definitely a little more difficult with more up and down the crests of the hillside. Lots of waterfalls, a suspension bridge and nice views of the lake. It’s challenging but do-able, but for those that aren’t in the best shape, you might want to stick to the east side of trail.

A nice hike. Quite busy, even in the winter. Lots of hills, and a good variety of terrain.

Have done past two weekends (wet) and over 20 times. Always a great trail, moderately strenuous, but never too difficult. Absolutely love this place!

Perfect 10k hike where you can also run in many places. Changes in elevation and lots of different paths to explore when ready. Beautiful scenery. Rugged, hiking shoes recommended. Dog-friendly. Be Bear-aware.

Although you are close to the city, you will not hear cars. My boyfriend and I enjoyed a walk here in July. My Fitbit logged it as a 7.94 mile hike. There is some elevation change so bring water and a walking stick if you need to steady yourself. Will certainly go back!

I've done this Lake Loop trail multiple times. Always a great hike. Love that there are multiple options from the Lake loop to Lakeview trail and the longer Diez Vista trail. The lake is beautiful and trail is well travelled. Get there early on weekends or you will find yourself walking in from outside the gates adding a couple kilometres to you day.

Loved this hike. It took us just under 3 1/2 hours to complete. This included a short snack break at the north beach and a few photo stops. Some technical parts , crowded even on a Monday, but well worth it

Buntzen provincial park is one of my favorite places to hike. The scenery is specular.

An easy walk around the lake, even in the rain. Small elevations along the way, but mostly flat. Had a nice encounter with a banana slug that came out after the rain.

This is an easy trail. I mean, not extremely easy, but I've seen children doing much harder trails in the past.
It's a nice pace for a day with the family. The lake is beautiful.
The east side of the trail is a walk on the park.
The west side has some short "steep" sections, which shouldn't be a problem to most people.
I few this trail should be rated as easy instead of moderate. Most likely it's rated as moderate because of the west side, which is not even that bad imo.

As informed by Rio Loing, the east side of the trail is closed for maintenance. Utility road must be used.

Nice trail but the entire east side of the trail was closed for maintenance. Had to walk along the utility road the whole east side of the lake.

East side of trail is down due to crazy wind couple months back, they are working on fixing it so part of route is on the hydro road. Been on this hike hundreds of times and will always love it, safe comfortable place for me and kiddo to hike as I know the area. We will never let the rain stop us from exploring.

Part of the trail was closed due to construction but definitely worth the scenery it boasts.

It's a slushy wet slog right now so dress to get wet. If it freezes again before the rain washes away the snow, you'll want spikes or yaktrax for some sections.
