High knoll is another one for a sunny day. The dyke between lakes offers lots of wildlife, the treck to the high knoll is fairly easy making you work up a small sweat before breaking open to the view point. Definately the most rewarding part of the hike are the panoramic views of Pitt river and surrounding areas.
We started at the Quarry Road entrance, took to the gravel trail and at first we were concerned that our hike wasn't going to be challenging enough for us but that quickly changed to rocky terrain entwined with tree roots. A beautiful sight and once we got to the Lookout we were thrilled with the entire hike!
Would do it all over again on a sunny day to see more of the country view.
My husband and I did this hike today, it was a beautiful sunny Sunday so it was a bit busy heading up! We started the trail around noon and got back to the car shortly after 2pm. That was with taking only a brief break at the top to enjoy the view - which was included some nice views of the Pitt River and the marsh.
Some good variation in the trail, some good incline, rock and root to scramble, minimal views on the way to the top but there are a few lookout points. Personally I don't mind this, I love being in the trees. The trail was well marked and easy to follow with posted signs, and a few maps along the way.
The trail was a bit muddy in some sections, expected for early Spring! We would definitely do this again.
Snow free. A little muddy. A great family spot. Venturing to high knoll with small children might be challenging. Lots of ducks and saw a beaver. Great view for little effort.
Awesome trail for all ages
Great hiking/walking trails
Very easy and nice scenery walk
The view was great up there at High Knoll. I went at winter time and would love to do it again in summer.

moderately difficult trail. fairly easy walk for the most part although, deciding to head up the high knoll meant engaging the ol' leg muscles and trudging away. well worth it for the view. great way to kill a few hours.
We walked at a fair pace, the High Knoll trail and it took about 75 minutes. some steep sections but definitely manageable. once at the top, beautiful views!
