Trout Lake Loop 10k map
Trout Lake contains no trout and enough bad stuff that it’s usually closed to swimming, but that doesn’t make it any less pretty a destination within easy running distance of the Cambie Running Room.

The lake is in the centre of John Hendry Park and is encircled by a weaving network of crushed gravel and paved pathways. The park is intersected by several bike routes and is midway between the Commercial-Broadway and Nanaimo Street Skytrain stations. There is a washroom by the beach at the south end of the lake and the Trout Lake Community Centre is nearby, on the Victoria Drive side of the park.

Turn-by-Turn Directions:
EAST on 7th — RIGHT on Yukon — LEFT on 10th (10th dog-legs to the right on Prince Albert just after Kingsgate Mall) — RIGHT on Victoria — LEFT on 15th into John Hendry Park to the path around Trout Lake — RIGHT at the path and run counter-clockwise around Trout Lake path back to the exit to 15th — follow the same route back

Yes, I borrowed the fish scales of a stream resident Coastal Rainbow Trout from my favourite fishy illustrator in the whole world, Joe Tomelleri.
