The Hayward Lake Reservoir recreation area and trail system has become a showcase of B.C. recreational area, with a trail all around the lake.

The pleasant rush of water cascading down Steelhead Falls and the general sense of peaceful solitude are just a few of the attractions of the trail on the east side of the Hayward Lake Reservoir.

This trail encircling Hayward Lake offers a little bit of everything for outdoor enthusiasts. There is a day-use picnic area and beach (at the main Hayward Lake recreation site) and there is the trail that now runs along one side of the lake and then crosses Ruskin and Stave Falls dams to complete the loop along the other side.
