Get Outside in Maple Ridge
Jun 09th, 2016
When you live in Maple Ridge, it’s easy to find yourself outside in nature. Residents at Maple Heights and in the surrounding community have the great outdoors in their backyard. Here are a couple of our favourite hikes in Maple Ridge:
Kanaka Creek Regional Park
Contouring the Fraser River shoreline, this 11 kilometre stretch of protected land is lush with water and forest. Kanaka Creek Park has two main trails – Cliff Falls and Riverfront. The two hour Cliff Falls Trail begins at the Bell-Irving Hatchery, and follows the stunning sandstone cliffs and waterfalls. Or take the leisurely Riverfront Trail, where you’ll enjoy one hour of beautiful river views.
Golden Ears Provincial Park
One of the largest parks in British Columbia is right here in Maple Ridge. Rugged mountain terrain and sparkling waters make Golden Ears a truly West Coast experience. Trails of various skill levels and durations crisscross the park. You could spend an afternoon exploring or stay overnight in one of the designated campgrounds. There’s lots to see – the views from higher elevations are breathtaking and you make even spy a black bear, beaver, or goat.
Don’t forget your sunscreen, water, and camera (for all those Instagram-worthy views).
