Buntzen Lake is located in a beautiful recreation area just north of Port Moody. Although the lake is man-made and maintained by BC Hydro, the surrounding area is full of forests, nice beach areas, and many trails for hiking including the Buntzen Lake Trail, which loops around the lake.
Beginning from the parking lot, walk to the beach and then head along the beach in a southerly direction to your left. As you walk further away from the popular beach area, a network of trails appears that enters into the forest.

Enjoyable in the fall
My girlfriend and I went here in the fall, regretfully, we did not hike the trail but rather came to sit by the lake and enjoy the quiet(ish) surroundings. The boathouse is cool, but don't come here if you are just coming for the shot...

Growing up meters from the beach it was no surprise that my love for photography began in and around the ocean. My consistent drive to get up every morning is fueled by the excitement and enjoyment of capturing visionary photographs of things that inspire me, whilst having a ton of fun along the way. I love the feeling adventure photography has given me, to explore new places and strive to capture the outdoors. I hope to inspire people through my work.Follow
