One of the places that made me fall in love with Squamish, is one of our favourite little walks with the munchkin just minutes from our doorstep. Mashiter Channels. This little aquatic oasis feels very much like the hidden gem in one of my favourite movies “The Secret Garden” – tucked away for just a special few to enjoy.
I feel instantly relaxed, and so does baby – within minutes of entering the forest she is drifting off into dreamland…
A perfect place for a rare moment of solitude for moms & babies.
There are many access points to this trail network. The simplest to explain is to park in the gravel parking lot behind the pound/SPCA on government rd. Cross to the east side of the street and you will find a map. Walk for ~ 2 minutes along the dyke and you will find a small pathway that leading to your right, down into the channel system. This trail also connects underneath Hwy 99 to the channels beside the golf course. Tread lightly as this is senstive wildlife habitat.
