Starting in Port Moody on Barnet Highway (#7A), turn north onto Ioco Road. After heading straight through two intersections, the road changes into Heritage Mountain Boulevard and climbs uphill. Continue for two kilometers to a roundabout, turning right Davis Avenue. A short distance later, turn left onto Forest Park Way at a four way stop then left again onto Aspenwood Drive almost immediately. Aspenwood Drive becomes East Road and leads through the village of Anmore to Sunnyside Road. Turn right, and continue to the park entrance gate. Park in the main parking lot.
During the summer months, Buntzen Lake is extremely popular - the parking lot is on a first-come basis only. Once the parking lots are full, the gate will be closed for the day. Gate opening and closing times change throughout the year. To find out the current times, call the Buntzen Lake Warden's office at 604-469-9679.
The C26 bus operates from Coquitlam Centre to the Buntzen Lake area daily. Normally the bus stops at the either the East Road / Sunnyside Road intersection or the turnaround before the gate, but on weekends and holidays in July and August continues to the Buntzen Lake parking area. For bus schedules and information, visit the Translink website. It's 15-20 minute walk (1.8 km) from the gate to the parking area.
A short, graded loop trail starting from the the South end of Buntzen Lake's South Beach. The trail can also be used as an access route from the South Beach to the floating bridge, as there is a connector trail at the halfway point of the loop.
The trail has some interpretive signs it from BC Hydro.
