    Sasamat Lake is in Belcarra Regional Park, near Anmore. This is one of the warmest lakes in Metro Vancouver ! There is a nice easy trail around the lake, with minimal elevation gain. This place can get very crowded in the summer because it has two great sandy beaches (White Pine Beach). There is a very sturdy floating bridge across the lane with two wharves for fishing or jumping off. The lake has an area of about 45 ha (111 acres) and a perimeter of 3.2 kms.

    Distance: 3 km
    Time: variable
    Low point: 51 m
    High point: 74 m
    Elevation gain: 23 m
    Trailhead and parking: 49° 19’ 21.5” by 122° 53’ 03” (Google Maps and navigation)
