The Nicomekl River starts from a spring east of Langley and meanders 34km west to Mud Bay near Crescent Beach. Today we’re exploring Langley’s Flood Plain Trail and making a loop of a few nature trails in the area. I love the name of this one … Nicomekl … “from the Halq’emeylem used by the Stó:lō people, meaning “the route to go” or “the pathway”. This is an easy ride, 15 km total and can be done as a loop or broken into smaller routes.

Be sure to add in Sendall Gardens – worth the trip to see this small pocket garden, especially the statue of Ernest!
Reader’s Note 2017: “We enjoyed our ride on #56 and seeing a different section of Langley. We had also considered taking our grandson in a bike trailer but glad we reconsidered as a lot of this trail is unsuitable for chariots.”
