Minnekhada Regional Park is a natural park situated in northeast Coquitlam, British Columbia, alongside Pitt-Addington Marsh and the Pitt River. It is over 200 hectares in size, and features trails, rock knolls, abundant trees, birds and other wildlife.
Forest, marsh and rocky outcrops make this regional park a gem to explore any time of year. The network of trails are great places to hike and watch for wildlife. It is also home to Minnekhada Lodge, a 1930s country estate with views of the Pitt River.
I spent this past Saturday hiking to the High Knoll lookout at Minnekhada.
