      The trail network adjacent to Heritage Park is located on LMS (Leq'a:mel, Matsqui & Sumas/Sema:th) Lands, and managed by the City of Mission. The City has partnered with the FVMBA in a trail maintenance agreement where the City will fund rehabilitation and ongoing maintenance of the trail network.

      The trails are a popular walking and hiking area and good for an easy ride. Most of the trails were built by and for mountain bikers, by a wide-range of people over several decades.

      The trails are shorter in length, but offer technical challenges, along with some of the easier beginner riding in the Mission area. Park at the Fraser River Heritage Park parking lot off Mary St., and ride through the park to the east end across the foot bridge to access the riding trails.

      East of the foot bridge on the gravel path, head north to the StirUp connector trail to climb Glen's Loop, Jacob's Ladder, or Hannah's.

      From the Lower Saddle connector you can enjoy some nice XC track going back towards the Stirrup on any of the trails. Or continue climbing by going down Glen's onto Gondola, and continue climbing Gondola to the Upper Saddle for some technical riding from the top.

      These are hand-built trails for light recreational use. Biking or hiking only. No horses or motorized vehicles allowed on the named trails including Salamander. City of Mission directs use-types.

      There is no access to this network from the Monastery at the top of the hill. The monks forbid riding on their property, and tales of God's retribution against their blasphemy are told by those who have ignored the warning Smile
