The hatchery, located in Kanaka Creek Regional Park, can be reached either by trail from Cliff Falls park or more directly by road from 256 Street, south off Dewdney Trunk Road. Normal footwear is fine if you are going directly to the hatchery, but hiking boots or good quality walking shoes are a must if you choose the canyon trail. Take along a snack and take time to enjoy the short hike from the park to the hatchery.

Nursery logs, sword ferns and towering Cedar, Hemlock and Douglas Fir trees serve as a backdrop for the tumbling and cascading creek. Unusual tailed frogs and the dipper bird will be found along the creek. The hatchery includes rearing ponds and offers free tours on weekends between 1:00-3:00 pm.
