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...

This year 2016 I visited Golden Ears park a few times. Cars can go right down to the beach area We had our own canoe but rentals are available at the beach. Along with an ice cream stand. 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

This place is the best for water activities, as well as having a nice lunch afterwards on the picnic tables.

One of the nice things about the park is how close it is to the cities in the Metro Vancouver area. It is very easy to access on easy to drive roads right into the park. There is no charge to get into the park or for parking. I can see how in the summer the parking could fill up.... More

Stayed 4 nights at Golden Ears Provincial Park while being a "tourist" for the first time in Vancouver. The campground is very nice, with large sites and adequate washroom facilities. However, we used this as our place to sleep while touring various places in the city. We found the traffic (and therefore travel time) to Vancouver Aquarium, Grouse Mountain and... More

Visited the park just before returning to England. I wish I had given myself more time to explore the park, you really need a full day to take in all the wonderful surroundings.
