Triangle Lake Trail

Triangle Lake Loop Trail

The Triangle Lake trail is a popular hike in Halfmoon Bay. It’s entrance is located across Redrooffs Road from the Sargeant Bay Provincial Park entrance. Along with the Colvin Creek Trail, this trail is one of the few “hiking only” trails on the Sunshine Coast. So no bikes, no vehicles of any kind and no horses.

There are two points of access to Triangle Lake, both with maps of local hiking trails. Both kiosks and maps have been provided by the Sunshine Coast Trails Society.

The lower trail is a beautiful hike through the forest, passing over small streams as it weaves through the rainforest. It is a gradual ascent from Redrooffs Road to the viewpoint at Triangle Lake and has an elevation gain of about 180 metres (590 feet). The length of the circle trail is approximately 1.7 km. There is no access through or over the marginal sphagnum bog to the open water.

The fork to the right takes you past Colvin Creek Falls, and you can return via the more direct route to the left (right on your return).

The second access is from the trailhead at Trout Lake on Highway 101. This has less elevation gain than the lower access route. Park at the large parking area on the south end of Trout Lake and look for the kiosk visible from the highway. Follow the signs to the Triangle Lake Loop trail.
