Kanaka Creek Regional Park is a 400 hectare park located in Maple Ridge B.C. Come to this park with your pooch and embark in an incredible nature hike with some amazing views. The coastal rainforest, waterfall, sandstone cliffs and converging creeks are just some of the highlights of this park. To explore the trails, your pup must be leashed at all times. Although the creeks may be shallow enough for your dog to play in, do keep in mind that many of the waterways are inhabited by salmon and trout that can be dangerous for your pup if ingested raw. Also be mindful of your dog eating plants as some of the plants may be toxic to them.
There are two main trails you can choose to hike at this park. Canyon Trail is about 1.2 km and is a 30 minute walk (one way) from the Hatchery. This trail does have some challenging hills so consider your dog’s physical ability before taking on this trail. The Canyon Trail features sandstone canyons with a nice view of a gorgeous waterfall. To the east of the Canyon Trail are the Riverfront Trails. The Riverfront Trail is longer and an easier path to take as the trails are relatively flat. On this trail, you and your dog can catch a glimpse of Kanaka’s oxbow and the Fraser River. If you are feeling extra adventurous, you can even go canoeing on the Fraser River with you pup. Just ensure that both you and your pup are wearing life vests for safety and make sure that your dog will be calm enough in a canoe. There are washrooms and picnic tables all throughout the park so you can take food and bathroom breaks as you see fit. Make sure to also bring some snacks and a water bowl for your pup as the park does have a drinking water station but does not offer bowls for dogs to drink out of.
