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.

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
