HikingGreat!

What a nice surprise. I went in thinking I wasn't going to like this hike but I loved it. One of my favourites of the summer. Great view of Buntzen Lake at the end. For my short video review: https://youtu.be/aFoEvLq8Tkg

WalkingGreat!

The trail is beautiful, lovely views at the end! I’m confused why people here are saying the power lines are a turn off? It’s literally called eagle mountain POWERLINE ROAD, obviously there are going to be power lines there?

It’s an ok hike. The trail itself is fairly maintained and the views aren’t bad however, the powerlines are definitely a turn off. If you feel like hiking for a quick heart pump, then I’d recommend this one.

Great for an afternoon or an evening hike. The powerline makes it less attractive for me, but still you can get a glimpse of the city, and nearby lakes. passed only a handful of hikers and some offroad bikers and cars.

Nice trail, very rocky though like a logging road, pretty easy for an intermediate trail. Most of the incline is at the start. The view is beautiful except for the electric poles. I saw only 2 people the whole time from 1-2pm on a tuesday. Just be bear aware when coming up on corners whetr you cant see ahead :)

Pretty nice, for an access trail. I took off up the mountain for a bit on the way there, which was a good bit of uphill. It was misty and drizzly at first, but cleared up about half way through. Running when I could, it took me three hours to do 15k, with the diversion up the hill.

Off Road DrivingClosed

We were a bit disappointed today. We had hoped to take our Jeep up to the lookout at the end of Powerline Rd. The first gate off Eagle Mountain Drive was open so we started, only to see a sign that said the gate could close at any time. Next we hit another gate at the start of the Powerline Rd, this one permanently closed. Motorcycles are also not allowed. They can sneak around the gate but there are signs everywhere that say NO to this. Mountain bikes are no problem though.

BEAR WARNING Did this hike Friday June 5, on our way back around 9pm, we rounded a corner and encountered a large bear right on the paved road at the end of the trail before the gate to get back to our car. We started backing away slowly but it saw us and started walking towards us, at this point we started talking to let it know we were human. It was undeterred and kept approaching us while we backed away slowly. We started shouting and it eventually turned and went into the forest and we briskly got back to the car. Luckily we had bear spray ready as well. Also luckily we had our dog on leash at the time, I noticed some people walking their dog off leash. Be careful!! Other than that the views are very nice at the end. The main road had a lot of people on dirt bikes going by which was stressful for the dog. The side trails in the forest were nice as well but also mountain bikers to be aware of passing.

The access road is a nice easy-ish hike up with a nice view at the top. Tried to explore the bike trails a little but found them confusing & it tacked on a lot of time to the hike. Hung out at the top for about 20 mins to take in the view. Overall good exercise & good view.

Chemin d’accès tout du long ou alors prendre les sentiers forêts et profiter de l’ombre, tout en respectant le sentier et les cyclistes, qui sont prioritaires. Beau point de vue, un peu dommage avec les énormes pylônes électriques.

Nice hike - highly recommend hiking on the bike trails. Much nicer than staying on the access road. At about 1.5 kilometres take Physiotherapy up the mountain and then transition to Mossom Creek Trail. It will take you to the access road before the lookout over Buntzen Lake - which is gorgeous. You can also use both trails on the return leg.

Took 1.75 hrs. to complete this 8.5km trail. No proper sign was displayed at all and we missed the trail to almost go to the BC Hydro plant in the first place. Apart from this, the trail is considered to be easy with beautiful outlook over the Buntzen Lake at the very end of the trail.
