Starting from the Goldsworthy Pier, we walk along the Spirit Trail by the waterfront taking note of the beautiful house boats. We follow Mosquito Creek and The Great Trail (formerly Trans Canada Trail) through forested areas uphill to Montroyal underpass and retrace our steps to return to the Pier. 6K/10K11K options.
Central Park is notable for its immense Douglas fir, Western hemlock, cedar, poplar and maple groves. We'll enjoy a walk along the BC Parkway Urban Trail (beside the SkyTrain) and through Central Park before returning via residential streets. Washrooms available at Start/Finish & in the Park.
