- B.C. Hydro must be given full credit for combining water storage with superlative facilities for hiking, horseback riding and water recreation in the area surrounding Buntzen Lake. And in the case of the trail of the ten viewpoints, the building of a floating bridge over the south arm makes possible a truly delightful circuit up along Buntzen Ridge (the north-south ridge to the west of the lake) and back along the lake. © Copyright Jack Bryceland and Mary & David Macaree Published by Greystone Books.
