Burnaby Lake Regional Park

 

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.
