Good variety in levels and scenery. Wear good shoes as the beginning is steep downhill (and you have to go back up it later). I wouldn’t bring a stroller. Only saw 2 other people on a holiday. I will definitely be doing this hike again.

Excellent trail to explore. Some hills then walking flat along the lake. Easy and beautiful. The sign says you can go to the powerhouse, but recently the trail was closed just past the slide area and you had to turn back.

Took the dogs here for the first time! Was a little nervous having them off leash for the first part of the trail as the drop off looks quite steep, but as you get towards the two beaches from the upper parking lot it's perfectly fine for dogs to roam free ( there was no one around). Water was great for them and paths were wide and easy to walk along. Wasn't sure what we were getting into and half of the path was closed for bc hydro work so just walked a few km and turned back to the car. Looks like a spot to check out again in the summer. There is a outhouse near the beach and also garbage can for park use. It was clean and well kept. Curious if it gets busy in the summer.

Great walk. Almost all level and winding with both forest and open shoreline views. Some short moderate climbs. Great for history buffs as this is the railway bed for the former Stave Falls Power railway that serviced the Powerhouse from the Fraser River. Start at the south end of the trail or start at the Hayward (BC Hydro) beach park. If you want to make a real outing of it, visit the BC Hydro Stave Falls Power House Museum. It is more than worth the admission and there is a lot to learn about the fascinating history of this place.
