Explore the most popular walking trails near Fraser with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

This is a nice steady incline hike. Very kid friendly, well maintained, mile markers on trail, falls at the top and the option to loop around the lake back down. Lots of beautiful flowers, plenty of wildlife, dog friendly and stellar views. There is NO FEE to hike or park, ample parking and easy to find. If you need a map, just go into the main building on the left hand side as you enter the YMCA and Snow Mountain Ranch and ask the front desk for the trail map to the falls, very friendly.
We live here, but a great starter trail for others to acclimate to the elevation. Stay hydrated and enjoy the views!

Walked from Winter Park resort to Winter Park. Nice, easy walk with picnic tables and benches along the way.

This was a great trail for my 7 and 4 year old kids. The perfect length, nothing too strenuous and a great reward at the end. The waterfall is just beautiful. The trail is pretty sunny, the Larson side is much shadier. We saw several bird species, squirrels, chipmunks and even a porcupine. The wildflowers were beautiful! Well maintained trail, easy to read and follow, bathrooms at the trailhead. We had no issue parking but it was a bit of a colder day, the lot is small so I can see it getting crowded sometimes.

Nicely maintained but entrance pass to snow mountain ranch to hike on their property was $20/person if you are not staying there

Nice, easy hike for families with a pretty falls. you also get some views of distant mountains on the way back.

Easy hike with a beautiful waterfall at the end. There was a little snow and some mud in spots. The only bad thing was the trail start was hard to find for my group.

Good quick beginner hike. My group used it as a test to acclimate ourselves to the elevation. There was some snow and played a little game of snowball baseball.

A network of many trails in this area, many intersections to keep choosing from. Nice easy trails to relax on. One though had several downed trees at the end of May. Lots of shade. Great views when the trees clear.

Easy hike ending at a beautiful waterfall. The last part of the trail was still partially covered with snow. Seems well maintained though.

Great little trail following the Fraser River through Winter Park. Moderate traffic, mostly from those camping along the spots available nearby.

7-5-15- MB/RB; Starts along Fraser trail/ Rendevous development. It's not marked well so hard to follow when it crosses roads where to connect again. It's used by bikers too so makes hiking difficult on narrow/ moderately steep path.

It's a primarily dirt hard surface close to town. Makes it easy to get to and has a nice little climb
To good views of the valley and Fraser river. It's sort of in and around the Rendevouz development so it loses some points for not feeling remote at all. A good choice for some quick miles within a close drive of Fraser and winter park.

It was fun!! Would do it again!

Great bike trail and walking trail however I would not hike here if you are looking for a moderate level...I would say this should be classified as easy. Really pretty trail...lots of tall trees.

Amazing every year

This was an excellent hike. It took us about 3 hours to get to the peak, and 2 hours to get back. There were gorgeous 360 degree views from the peak. A pair of mountain goats was waiting for us at the summit.

After you park, there is a 1.8 mile hike of switchbacks to get to the trailhead. Bikers can bike this first section. The last 1.1 miles is above the treeline and involves climbing multiple peaks before reaching the highest one: Byers Peak.

This is a fun loop with a sustained but easy climb, and a long fast descent on old fire access roads. Be sure to combine this with the Chainsaw Trail on your way back for some fun twisty singletrack.
