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 detour 

Paved multi-use path: closed until December 2023, detour in place

From July until December 2023, the paved path between Murray Street and Old Orchard Park is closed for construction while upgrades are made to the trail and the bridge over Noons Creek. A detour is in place – please be aware that the detour includes unpaved trail, steep grades, roadways, and railway crossings. Cyclists must use the detour route as bicycles are not permitted on the lower gravel trail. See for a detour map and more information. 

Lower gravel path and boardwalk: 

The lower gravel and boardwalk trail around Pigeon Cove is now open for summer-time use (2023). This boardwalk and bridge section of the trail was closed in December 2022 for safety reasons after a bridge failed during a high tide. A temporary bridge has been installed as an interim repair; this bridge will be permanently replaced as part of the Shoreline Trail Boardwalk Replacement Project.

Construction for this project is scheduled to start in the fall of 2023 pending completion of all steps in the City’s planning process. To learn more about this project, visit
