Cheakamus Lake Professional Review and Guide
"Nestled at the foot of the Fitzsimmons Range, and just within the boundary of Garibaldi Provincial Park, glacier-fed Cheakamus Lake is ringed by peaks towering to 1600 m (5250 feet). The mostly level trail and lakeshore campsites draw summer crowds of hikers, fishers and mountain bikers. If you prefer tranquility and school holidays are not a consideration, hike the trail in fall, when the lake is enfolded in silence and the surrounding mountains await the first snowfall."
--Jean Cousins, Easy Hiking Around Vancouver (Greystone Books).
Nice flat walk though forest, along creek and lake. Perfect for kids. Cousin and I took 6 kids in total ages 4-10 years old for a one night backpaking trip. Lots for the kids to explore, including the bridge about 1KM into the trail.
