Would turn back when the trail turns hard right left onto swan dyke- eventually gets too overgrown to easily continue and there’s lots of black flies rn

Thursday June 25th, 2020 at 10:30am - Oh boy, not what I expected. First 2/3 of the trek is fine, no shade really but nice views of the water and nearby mountains. Should have turned back after the second lookout tower though. The last part is very overgrown with some prickle bushes along the way, parts of the pathway have eroded making it a bit tricky to navigate through the thick brush. Took my 8 and 5 year old and it wasn't a pleasant time for them. I would suggest only doing the first 2/3 of it then either doubling back or there is another longer pathway that you can go which is wide open so you'll need sun protection. Also gate is locked to trailhead so add another 1.5km to the loop. If it weren't for the views, would give this a lower rating.

Beautiful hiking area, but be bear aware! Had two of them come out of the bush about 50' in front of me. Luckily my dog noticed them first, but they did not care in the least that we were there. Turned around and walked the other way as they seemed content to just mull about on top of the dike. My only complaint is no garbage cans, not even one at the gated entrance along the side of the road (parking area closed due to Covid). And while I am a firm believer in pack out what you pack in, sadly many are not.

Parking lot remains closed, cars were parked along road, it only adds about 400m of walking before getting to the trail.

I always go the opposite way on the trail, lesser people. Beautiful views of the mountains! One of my go-to places to walk with my dog. I enjoy trekking down to the rivers edge when paths become avaliable along the way. Can sometimes be muddy, I usually wear my rain slickers. Lots of thorny bushes along the trail so be careful if you come with your pup. There are also no garbage cans along the trail if you go to the left instead of walking the loop.. Inconvenient if you have a dog but I just stick it in the trunk and discard of it once home..

The Pitt Addington Marsh trail is on Katzie First Nations land. I grew up knowing these trails as a part of the “Grant Narrows Regional Park”. A lovely loop system in the marsh that connects to the lower Pitt River, Pitt Lake, and Pitt Addington Marsh! Easy dyke walking a a lot of bird life. I went Christmas Eve and saw plenty of mallards, wigeons, bald eagles, trumpeter swans, and blue herons, as well as a northern shrike, marsh wren, northern harrier and a few song sparrows! Merry Christmas everyone!

The full name of the area is the Pitt-Addington Marsh Wildlife Management Area. The trail is along the Pitt lake, and it is flat, easy to walk, and the views are beautiful.

Great trail at all seasons. Lots of wildlife. Scenery is amazing, Pitt Lake, wet lands, mountains. Gets very busy on weekends. If the sun is out, parking lot will overflow. The part of the trail between the view post and the parking lot is no longer maintained and especially the blackberries are trying to conquer the trail. I walked this trail a couple of times this summer with a machete, however, the trail needs some serious maintenance.

We chose to hike this trail on this cloudy day and it was perfect as most of the trail is not shaded. The drive coming to this trail was also scenic, blueberry farms on both sides of the road. We started the trail behind the canoe rental building. A third of the trail was thick bushes, lots of bugs and very narrow, be careful of the thorns from the blackberry bushes. The next third of the trail has hill view on the right side and marsh on the left. The last third was gravel road with river view on the right. Beautiful. Stop by at the lookout tower to see the swallow nests on the ceiling.

The trail was good, lots of great views. 2/3 of the trail is completely accessible for parents with small children/infants but the last part of the trail is a 1’ wide trail that leans towards the water making it extremely difficult for people pushing a stroller. Trail could use more signs as well so you know you aren’t lost.

Beautiful views. Walked to the end of the dyke and took the swan dyke road as it appeared to link up with the beginning of the trail. Once I got to the second lookout the trail thinned quite a bit but was wide enough for my dog and I to get through. That last little bit was pretty slippery and muddy, and I agree with the other reviewers who said it was a bit claustrophobic. I prefer the wide open trails. Saw some beautiful birds as well.

It’s a nice trail but it’s heavily over grown. You’ll need a machete to get through some areas or just squeeze through. Wish it was better maintained. Noted a handful of bear droppings but no bear sighting.
