Hiking High Knoll

The hike to High Knoll is located within Minnekhada Regional Park in Coquitlam, near the Pitt River.

With over 200 hectares in Minnekhada Regional Park, there are many trails to explore throughout. The hikes are short, and the elevation isn't too demanding, making it a great spot for family outings.

The main points of interest in Minnekhada Park are the historic Minnekhada Lodge, and the amazing view provided from the hike to High Knoll. There is also a marsh, rich with wildlife, located in the middle of the park. 

The view from High Knoll is spectacular, and has to be seen by everyone at least once.
