What makes this forest path so spectacular is you get to see both Woodland and the 40-foot tall Sawblade Falls.

Within the forest glen, you'll feel like you have the park to yourself, and enjoy an up-close look at both sights.

From start to finish, it will take you roughly 3.5 hours following the looped path.

For the best steady stream of falling water, aim to go in the spring or after a downpour.

Before you depart, it is a good idea to wear waterproof boots, as the path can often have lots of muddy puddles.

Also, don't be alarmed if you hear gunfire; the sound travels from the Port Coquitlam and District Hunting and Fishing Club shoot ranging — ah, the sounds of nature.
