Spectacular trail in the fall and great for salmon viewing; keep in mind that if you visit in late November it can be a little smelly because of the rotting fish. A short, flat walk will take you to the nature house where you can purchase hot and cold beverages and other treats.
There is no elevation included for Goldstream since the trail is very flat with only slight changes in elevation.
