Diez Vistas Trail

Length:  11.9 km
Condition: Well maintained, moderately difficult.
General Route: This is a popular loop circuit around Buntzen Lake. The actual Diez Vistas trail is this western portion; it follows the height of the land between Buntzen Lake and Indian Arm.

On the East Shore the trail runs between the BC Hydro access road and the lakeshore. The two beaches on either side of the lake (South beach near parking lot, North beach across the lake) are very popular in the summer. The Buntzen Lake area is the location of a 50km race in early spring. 
How to Find: Situated near Port Moody on the outskirts of Anmore. Drive to the parking lot at the south end of Buntzen Lake, and then find the trailhead. There are signs.

Trail Description: The East trail around the lake is quick and very well graded. It features several small, secluded beaches and patios away from the throngs of South or North Beach. East Trail leads to North Beach and the Coquitlam Lake tunnel. 

After North Beach, cross the suspension bridge and take a right on the trail until you reach the BC Hydro service road. Follow the service road up until you see a signpost (on your left) to the Diez Vistas trail. The trail is rises gently (and sometimes a little steeply) then rolls as it follows the ridgeline - offering several stunning views of mountains, cities and water. Past the final view, the trail begins to drop as it returns to South Beach. Follow the trail marked with square metal blazes until Saddle Ridge trail, then use handy little map available at Park entrance to negotiate horse trails back to Pumphouse Rd, the floating bridge, and the trail to the beach and parking lot.

An easier alternative to the Diez Vistas trail on the west side is the Buntzen Lake trail itself. It does not rise as high above the lake. Both trails finish by crossing the floating bridge at the south end of the lake.
