Thetis Lake Regional Park – Creed Road Trail

A wide gravel footpath from Creed Road leads to Craigflower Creek Trail which is one of many trails in Thetis Lake Regional Park. The Creed Road trailhead is just south a large redwood tree. The trail is lined by a chain-linked fence on the south and a post and wire fence to the north. Cedar and fir trees shade the pathway which leads to several sets of staircases: some steel staircases other parts are older wood-barrier steps. The trail crosses over Craigflower Creek on an aluminum bridge and branches up and downstream along the creek. This creek is habitat for sea-run steel head salmon and feels pristine. This is great walk in your back yard and can be extended as the trail connects southward to Marler Park.
