A canoe paddle through a lay-lowing slough and a short hike make the perfect summer-weekend day trip. This tidal freshwater lake is the largest of its kind in the world. Lace your way through Widgeon Slough, leave the canoe on a sandy beach, and make the easy walk through the woods to powerful Widgeon Falls. As the creek tumbles over a rocky drop, it creates a refreshing rainbow of spray and a stunning view. Canoe Rentals are $55/day ( as of 2014) but no other fees or permits are required. Kayaks are also permitted. Contact Pitt Lake Canoe Rentals at (604) 836-7117 for rental availability and reservations. There is no water available at the Grant Narrows parking lot or at the campground trailhead.

busy busy busy. always super packed. this place has gained extreme popularity over the last 5 yrs. The trails and water ways are heavily trafficked. parking is also limited. lots of people park in the Bush, notorious parking lot for break ins and fines. remember over night trips require parking permits or you'll come back and your car is gone. the slomac curse is strong with this area. remember wondering further south from the camp site you will be on private property and the folks in the community there are very odd ducks who enjoy 100% privacy

Loved it. Reach early especially over the weekends if you want to rent out a Canoe from the place itself. Those Canoes fly pretty quickly. Canoeing to the trail can take 50 mins - 90 mins each way depending on the skill level. Trail itself is not very hard. The entire experience of Canoeing and watching the widgeon falls itself is pretty rewarding:).

Great walk

Great spot to unwind after the canoeing, camping, and hike up to Widgeon Lake on the day before. The hike is super easy (compared to getting to lake above), with tons of spots to unwind in the river, with scenic falls around you, and spots to jump into the water if you're brave. Just be careful!

Take a canoe up to the opening.

Service road to the falls makes this a very very easy hike.

For the exercise and view I would take the trail. Beginners will find it a little challenging but it's worth it and good for you :)

Nice little day trip with the family and the canoe ride is about 30-50 minutes at most.

Nice hike. Paddling can take a good 90 min each way. Take the service road as a quick way to the falls. The trail is more challenging but also more beautiful
