The 7km granular/gravel trail spans from Prospectors' Point to the Botanical Gardens. The trail roams through a varying range of biodiversity and terrain; from wetlands, to river valley, to dense forest, and boardwalks. Keep a keen eye out for owls, eagles, rabbits, deer, and coyotes - there is an abundance of wildlife to be seen. For an added bonus, stop in at the Botanical Gardens for a tour or a quick snack/coffee.

Access Info

Trail-heads start at either the Botanical Gardens or at Prospector's Point parking lots.

Disclaimer

Multi-Use Trail - watch out for hikers/walkers - especially when close to Prospector's Point (Near the Devon bridge).

      If your biking, you won't get a lot of speed. The whole trail is loose gravel. The bigger hills are switchbacks. Well maintained, but suited best...

       Trailhead from Prospector’s point to Range Road 262 is heavy, loose gravel. Watch the down hill sections especially towards the river, tight, blind corners with loose gravel. Be nice and ring your bell in those sections. The climb up in loose gravel can be challenging.
