Route description

Walking along the north shore of the mighty Fraser River is a wonderful experience. The bulrush reeds and long grass at the edge of the riverbank provide an excellent habitat for water fowl, and spawning salmon. Often you will see people on the beach or at the end of the pier relaxing with a fishing rod. The Fraser River is a commuting corridor for hard working tugs, leisure boats and fishing vessels. Boat traffic is constant, travelling up and down the river, passing by the numerous anchored log booms. Your walk begins at the foot of Kerr Street near the pier.
