Route Description for Davis Lake Trail

The Davis Lake Trail is a moderately trafficked point-to-point route near the Fraser Valley that travels through the forested backcountry to Kenyon Lake and is popular with hikers and off-road vehicle drivers. This one-way trail is densely forested and offers some moderate changes in elevation, as well as a more technical stretch of trail towards the end. As there aren’t any easily accessible roads to Kenyon Lake, hikers will need to either spend the night camping at the Kenyon Lake Recreation Site, arrange a pick up with a high clearance 4x4 vehicle, or make the long return journey back to the trailhead on the same day. No matter how you decide to plan your return trip, the Davis Lake Trail is an excellent opportunity to reconnect with nature while visiting these two beautiful woodland lakes.

We recommend that you keep animals on leash as you’ll likely be passed by several offroading vehicles along the trail.

Getting to the Davis Lake Trail Trailhead
