    Burnaby Lake is the largest lake in Metro Vancouver and there is a trail that goes all the way around. For an added bonus, there are a number of different entry points to start your hike/walk. For my hike today, I started at the east end of the lake and parked in the Avalon Avenue parking lot.

    There are a number of small creeks that feed the lake, including Still Creek at the west end. The lake has a dam (Cariboo Dam), which leads to the Brunette River, which then goes to the Fraser River.

    Distance: 11 km (loop)
    Time: variable
    Low point: 15 m
    High point: 25 m
    Elevation gain: minimal
    Trailhead and parking: 49° 14’ 47.6” by 121° 55’ 6.0” (Google Maps and navigation)
