#77 Canyon to Coast Trail – Experience the Fraser

One day we will be able to cycle
from Hope to Steveston
along the Fraser River
550 kilometers, a chain of parks
Oh Wow !

The Coast to Canyon Trail ~ Experience the Fraser will connect Hope to the Salish sea along the Fraser River by means of a network of over 550 kilometres of trail, 43% of which is already in place along regional, municipal and community trails and blueways. The trail will connect communities, parks, natural areas, historic and cultural sites and other experiences along the river. The intent of the goal is to draw upon the rich natural and cultural heritage along the river, to better integrate the waterway into the lives of residents and visitors thereby fostering a stronger sense of place and stewardship. The trail and Blueway networks will provide a wide variety of recreational opportunities that promote active, healthy living for lower Fraser River residents.
