There’s a very unassuming park in the Delta Watershed that runs along Cougar Creek and beside Burns Bog. You feel as if you are miles away from the world on this woodsy trail with a river beside it. There are options – take the easy short ride for beginners, explore singletrack trails in Watershed and Joe Brown Parks, or ride to Boundary Bay for great views.

26Nov2019 Alert: Bill B says: I just wanted to let you know I tried to do the ride to Boundary Bay through the bog today and wasn’t able to get through with my bike as some spots were pretty muddy and flooded….it’d probably be easier with a fat tire bike but I ride an e-bike with road tires and it was no fun and I almost wiped out several times. There’s a sign posted at the beginning of the trail about some construction. I’m thinking this route would be great in the spring and summer but I sure wouldn’t recommend it now! (ps – would some kind rider let me know when it improves and I’ll take down this alert: email@example.com)
This ride first came to me thanks to a blog reader Marie who cycles with her kids: “The ground can be a little rough in some places, but I could easily handle it with the trail-a-bike behind me. Great opportunity to spot birds and dozens of rabbits and the kids liked looking at the trains. You can start by Planet Ice or right under the AlexFraser off River Road.” And thanks to Robert for the trail segments and Mark for route to Mud Bay. It’s always nice to get recommendations like this!
And ProofRider Bob adds, “If I could offer one suggestion that might help other riders choosing the Watershed ride, it would be how to easily find where the ride commences on River Rd. We spent quite a bit of time determining exactly where we got onto the “Greenway”, as it’s quite obscure and not easily seen from the road. If it simply noted that: “the ride commences right next door to the Tidewater Pub, on the west side”, it might help other riders.”
