Deer Lake

 

Deer lake is located near the centre of Burnaby, BC and is about 35 ha (90 acres) in area. The area is a nature oasis in the City of Burnaby. There are a number of easy walking trails and points of entry. I parked at the parking lot off Sperling Avenue. The trail around the lake is short and sweet; they are flat with many elevated boardwalks to protect the sensitive aquatic ecosystems. To add some distance to your hike, I suggest a walk up to see the original stairs for Oakalla Prison (which used to be located in the area).

Distance: 3.5 km (just lake loop)
Time: 1 hour
Low point: 20 m
High point: 38 m
Elevation gain: 18 m
Trailhead and parking: 49° 14’ 11.3” by 122° 57’ 53.5” (Google Maps and navigation)
