Stunning lake with viewpoints the whole way round that are all worth stopping for. If leaving from Lynn canyon the suspension bridge is currently closed so you will have to take the long way around

Great trail for kids and families. Walked this at 36 weeks pregnant a few months ago and it was easy enough. Lots of people out on the weekend.

An amazing trail for hiking and it is stroller friendly. The kids loved it. 4/5 would recommend to families with small children.

This is one of our favourite hikes in the Lower Mainland. It’s easy enough for young children to walk the entire loop on their own. It’s stroller friendly too.

Very easy and pleasant walk around the lake. I wouldn’t go as far as to call it a hike though. It’s fairly crowded with mostly families.

Nice location easy hike had a great start on a suspension bridge. Multiple options here, we took the lake loop and then walked to the falls. Saw a black bear which a local biker told us was rare.

It was a nice walk but definitely the boring part of my hike. It’s a tourist destination. Easy walk for families. Not a good place to go to see the greatness of Vancouver trails. You won’t feel lonely.

Lovely walk. Very easy trail, no elevation - just a beautiful walk.

The little lake was partly frozen and looked lovely with the mountains in the background. The trail was a bit icy and slippery. Some people put on cleats but others managed the trail with just sneakers. Trail head is quite easy to get to with transit.

Basically, there are two trails to this lake. One begins from the Lynn Canyon suspension bridge, the other starts from the Seymour-Capitano filtration plant area. If you wanna sweat a little bit I recommend do it from the suspension bridge route, otherwise, start from the filteration place. Stunning and scenic lake. There are a couple of cycling trails which might be exciting to do

This is a no dog zone, because it’s part of the city water reservoir, therefore we couldn’t walk there.

I did the trail today with my friend, we did three round of the trail, we ran totally 8.4km. Very easy trail and it took us 15-18 minutes for one loop about 2.7km.
