We ignored this lake for many years as the first time I tried to swim in it I almost got frostbite! From the warm lakes in Ontario, this was a shocker to me. But 2 years ago, we only had a little time off so not enough time to trailer our boat to a warm swimming lake so we decided... More

This park has an excellent network of trails from beginner to advanced, lots of camping sites (when available), a beautiful lake ideal for canoeing, kayaking, swimming, and boating.

This is a great time of year for everyone to take in the sites & sounds of this glorious park & lake. It's time for family fun or just take a casual stroll around the park.

I walk these trails several times a year and the surrounding beauty is astounding. It is amazing to have a beautiful park system so close to the city. This park and its trails are accessible year-round, much to the delight of the locals and visitors to the area. The walking trails can be light to more challenging.

Golden Ears is full of kilometre after kilometre of hiking, biking and horseback riding trails. Trail heads are marked as horse, hike/bike or multi-purpose use. This said, be prepared for anything on the trails. Also, don't stray from the trails as you could easily get disoriented. If you want adventure far into the trail system go with someone who has...

The beach area has been much improved and is wheelchair accessible. The swimming area is roped off and signs are up to... More

I climbed the golden ears in my youth. We were clueless in those days and clearly had little mountain climbing skills or background, but we did it. What gorgeous mountains on a spring or summer day, when the clouds are not around. You can see for miles and the trails are usually wet but after storms, difficult to maneuver.

Golden Ears Park is a 15 minute drive from Maple Ridge and it is very scenic with dense forest on either side of the road. The camp site was large and your neighbour was a distance away. The facilities are clean and spacious with lots of hot water for a shower. The walk to the lake is about 10 minutes... More

I called this tamed nature because although it is a genuine forest and landscape...we walk on beautifully groomed trails. We love to walk the Spirea trail, Lower Falls and Gold Creek to the confluence, we have in the past enjoyed the Look-out Trail, however now it may be a bit too taxing. The beach and lake is always a beautiful... More
