Just off the Lougheed, this quiet walk is very close to town, but far enough to be peaceful. The walk takes you along Kanaka to the Fraser. It is a bit short for my liking, but lots of places to stop and enjoy nature. Wheelchair and walker accessible.

With a morning to kill in Maple Ridge while visiting friends, we walked down to this lovely trail. It was a lovely warm fall day and the walk along the trails was so nice. There are spots to overlook the river and many benches to stop and just watch the river flow past. the biggest problem was that the maps... More

We were looking for a nice drive, and a scenic walk away from our Coquitlam area. This lovely short walk along the Fraser riverfront was just what we were looking for. Lots of trails - all leading back to where we parked our car. We were not familiar with the area, and found some brief accounts of the history of... More

This is one of my favourite 'flat' walks, nice change from the dykes. It's 45 min from ,and back to, my car at a brisk walk. From the parking lot you'll go around a lagoon with a 3 level viewing platform, on your way to the river where there are 2 different walks , riverfront and nature trail . To... More

The trail begins at a parking lot with washroom facilities. The trail itself is well maintained and takes you through Cottonwood forest down to the Fraser River. The walk is pleasant with raised viewing areas and natural vistas to appreciate. Because of the proximity to water the population of mosquitos can be annoying. I always spray my exposed flesh with...

One of the best places for a quiet stroll beside the Fraser River. Easy access from the main highway. Popular spot for dog walking and can be a little crowded on weekends. Have seen the occasional bear in late Spring or early Summer but never had any problems.
