Take a road trip out to Squamish to discover one of BC’s hidden gems – Murrin Provincial Park. The area is a playground for outdoor enthusiasts, with lots of places to climb, hike, or set up a picnic.
It’s been a popular spot for locals and tourists since the 1960s. The park boasts easy-access lake swimming, rock climbing, fishing, hiking and much more.
Find the 32-hectare park just south of Squamish, beside the Sea-to-Sky Highway.
One of the popular spots in Murrin Provincial Park park is the 2.5-km Murrin Loop Trail. The intermediate hike takes about 1.5 hours to complete round-trip. While the loop isn’t very long, it is a bit steep, with an elevation gain of 130-meters.
Hikers will walk towards the scenic Browning Lake and then follow the path through the beach area.
The trail will take you to the incredible Quercus Viewpoint. In addition, the lookout gives you a spectacular view of Howe Sound, Browning Lake, and nearby mountains.
