About Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area
Located 20 minutes east of Vancouver and home to Simon Fraser University, you'll find scenic views (especially at sunset), picnic and play areas, and trails primarily for walking and hiking through a conservation area on this 576 hectare (1,423 acre) mountain paradise.
The park's steep slopes are home to deciduous and coniferous trees, black tail deer, coyotes, bald eagles and smaller animals. Please be aware that black bears and cougars are occasional visitors to the creeks and streams near the forest trails.
Bring your camera to capture the changing seasons–occasional snowfalls turn the park into a winter wonderland.
