If you've looked out the window to the west as you approach Squamish, chances are you've noticed this road-side attraction. Locals and out-of-towners alike have been flocking to Murrin Provincial Park since the 1960's for its easy-access lake swimming, picnicking, hiking, fishing and rock climbing.

The 24-hectare park features an easy walking trail that takes you along the perimeter of Browning Lake which is stocked regularly in the spring and fall with Rainbow Trout. Throughout the park you’ll find hundreds of single-pitch sport and climbing routes for beginners up to high-calibre 5.13 test pieces.

The parking lot is also the access point for the Petgill Lake Trail, with the trailhead located just across the highway. This 11.5 kilometre trail takes you on a steep climb to Petgill Lake, offering incredible views of the Stawamus Chief, Howe Sound and all of Squamish.

Getting There:

Murrin Provincial Park is located approximately 10 minutes south of Squamish on the west side of the Sea to Sky Highway and visible as you approach the area.
