Nature Trails Brochure Flipbook

Hi-Knoll Park Hi-Knoll Park was given to the people of Surrey by Doris Kathleen Skelton in 1974. She loved the land so much that she passed it on for us to explore and appreciate long into the future. North of the Colebrook Road parking lot is a meadow set along the swampy banks of the Nicomekl River. Here you may come across Mallard ducks with their broods of ducklings or swallows swooping for insects in the sun. Try to spot other animals hiding in the tall grass. South of Colebrook Road is a wooded area with winding trails. You may catch a glimpse of songbirds or a Pileated Woodpecker; its large size, bright red head, and loud cackling help to identify it. In the spring, the forest floor is carpeted with wildflowers, and trees are bursting with new growth. Hi-Knoll Park is one of the few places in the Lower Mainland to find the beautiful pink fawn lily, likely named for the white markings on its leaves, resembling those of a fawn. This wildflower’s delicate blossoms are increasingly rare in the shady wooded areas – please don’t pick them! Follow the trails over Anderson Creek, a salmon-bearing stream. Please note: during the rainy season, the entire area north of the Nicomekl bridge may be inaccessible due to flooding.
