Another suggested walk by Peggy Moire, our senior contributor who is a long-time member of the North Shore Hikers from the 50's. Now a Senior of 80+, her and her husband still have their VW Bus, and, have taken to more flat walks and hikes with views, lunch breaks, here are a few attractions to Burnaby Lake
- walk around Burnaby Lake
- run around Burnaby Lake
- watch rowers practice on the water (if not too weedy)
- quiet, easy place to go
- animal rescue shelter nearby, see various birds and ducks
- Just North of the trans-Canada Hi-way, start at the West most entrance to the Park

In May you can see the newborn birds swimming after their mothers, which is pretty cute. Downside The trail itself isn't very interesting. There are very few views and most of the time you can't see the lake from the trail. For most of the walk, the only thing to see is the tall thick vegetation on either side of the trail. Comment There are several places to park to gain access to the trail. DO NOT use the Glencarin Trailhead parking lot. There are signs that declare "car thieves work here" which, as always, should be taken seriously. The trail is out of sight from the parking lot, so there isn't enough foot or car traffic going through the lot, which makes it easy for people to break into your car or steal it.

Downside A lot of slugs and close to roads and rails. Comment I constantly had to look down to make sure I don't step on any slugs.
