The Shoreline Trail has two paths that wind along the coast of the Burrard Inlet. One is a paved multi-use path for cycling and walking, and the other is a gravel and boardwalk trail for walking. Please note that bicycles and scooters (human-powered or electric) are not permitted on the lower gravel and boardwalk trail.

This scenic trail starts at the pier in Rocky Point Park and ends at Old Orchard Park. It takes approximately two hours to walk the six-kilometre round-trip trail. This is a great route for the whole family with minimal elevation on either path.

Notice of trail closures and conditions

Multi-use path: open

Paving work on the Shoreline Trail multi-use path has been completed and the path is once again open. Remaining tasks include the installation of map kiosks, fencing adjustments and line painting. Additionally, the project team will conduct a final inspection to address any remaining issues ensuring the path meets safety and quality standards. See for more information. 

Lower gravel path and boardwalk: closed January to summer 2024

The Shoreline Trail lower gravel and boardwalk path between Murray Street (3200 block) and the intersection with the upper multi-use path near the bridge over Noons Creek is closed due to work on the Shoreline Trail Boardwalk Replacement Project. We anticipate this section of the trail will re-open in summer 2024.
