Regarding trail Widgeon Lake near Vancouver, BC

Hi Guys,

I'm reading the comments and it looks like we have to paddle to an hour to reach the lake. Is there anyway to hike all the way without paddling? I don't really want to carry my canoe all the way (I guess there is a spot to put it somewhere...?)

Thanks for your answer! ;)

I have done this trail twice since 2012 and there really is no way to get to the trail head without a canoe. I have yet to see anyone actually get to the lake on top the hill with a canoe. It would be a Herculean effort to pull it off. The last 3 km are straight up the mountain. Scrambling etc. It isn't impossible. Last August I went up with some friends for an overnight. 3 of the kids were 11 and under. They carried their own gear all the way up.
