Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Belcarra picnic area attracts crowds on summer weekends, as does White Pine Beach on nearby Sasamat Lake, but there is more to Belcarra Regional Park than these deservedly popular spots. As well as a short hike to Jug Island Beach at the northern tip of the peninsula, the park’s trail system has been extended to link Belcarra with Sasamat and Buntzen lakes. (See Hike 5 Woodhaven-Sasamat Trails and Hike 6 Buntzen Ridge.) Also, a cycling/walking path roughly parallels the aptly named Tum-tumay-whueton Drive—meaning “the biggest place for people”—from Bedwell Bay Road to the picnic area.

The park leaflet gives details of Belcarra’s history as the site of two Salish villages; middens dating back to 1200 BC have yielded shells, bones and broken stone tools. Meanwhile, the shoreline walk to Burns Point is enjoyable in its own right, with its succession of beaches and headlands and views across Burrard Inlet. The trail is well marked all the way, and here a word of caution to the adventurous: those tempting unmarked trails leading into the forest are part of a maze of old paths and tracks that defies description. Unless you know the area, stay on the designated trail."

The trail looks well maitained, it has some nice view points. It was a little bit short though, but for families with kids it can be just enough. Perfect escape from the hot sun on the beach to the cool woods.
