The Poco Trail is one of the most popular rides in Metro Vancouver. It’s flat, off road, and scenic…the perfect combo for a great day. The trail circles Port Coquitlam weaving through parks and on the dykes of three rivers: Coquitlam, Pitt, and Fraser. The route has many starting points and is Skytrain accessible.

Rider Alert – Trail closed through First Nation Kwikwetlem. Maybe we should avoid the Poco Trail until the Sheep Paddock Trail opens in December! (TriCitiesNews article Sept2019)
Temporary detours – three routes:
- SHAUGHNESSY: Busy street with a hill. (I rode the sidewalk): EAST on Pitt River Road, RIGHT/South Shaughnessy, RIGHT/West into Colony Farm at first unmarked trail, or second marked entrance to Colony Farm.
- RIVERVIEW: Continue WEST on Pitt River Road over the red bridge, ride on MUP side path, at Lougheed use crosswalk, walk bike on path on safe side of cement barriers even though it is messy and narrow. Enter left side of yellow gate, up Sorrel St, LEFT/S Pine Terrace, LEFT/S Cape Horn, cross lights and enter Colony Farm Park.” (I have added these two routes to the blog map – zoom in.)
- OTHER OPTIONS: Port Coquitlam has created alternate routes. There are signs and they have updated their own site. ( I haven’t ridden those – Broadway is very busy)
Eagle returning to nest with food — along the Pitt River dyke. Keep your eyes open for eagles, herons, and hawks on this ride.
