Exploring our Trail

The fact is, most of us will never have time to walk the Trans Canada Trail's entire 23,000 km completed route. But in Metro Vancouver, we can experience multiple municipalities, diverse environments and mixed geography over the course of a few hours thanks to our extensive trail network. Here are two great ideas:


Spirit Trail/Trans Canada Loop

This is a perfect loop trail for the entire family that combines the Trans Canada with the Spirit Trail. (approximately 3 hours to complete):

  • Start from the Aboriginal Pavilion in Waterfront Park.
  • Walk west on the Spirit Trail past the Mosquito Creek Marina along the waterfront.
  • Continue along the Sprit Trail through Squamish Nation lands, the District of North Vancouver and into West Vancouver until Taylor Way Avenue.
  • Turn left (south) on Taylor Way towards the Lions Gate Bridge.
  • Walk over the Lions Gate Bridge on the south-bound sidewalk to Stanley Park in Vancouver. Be mindful of cyclists.
  • Once in Stanley Park, turn left (southeast) and walk along the Sea Wall. You are now on the Trans Canada Trail.
  • As you leave Stanley Park, stay on the waterfront through the city centre sea walk. Stay on the trail past Marina Square, Coal Harbour Park and Harbour Green Park.
  • Continue walking until you reach the Sea Bus station just past Canada Place.
  • Take the Sea Bus back to North Vancouver where you can enjoy a beverage or a snack at the Quay.
