There are three primary trails located in Port Moody:

 Bicycle Paths
Port Moody offers a variety of on-and-off road bicycle routes for you to explore. Whether you're interested in cycling on roads, mountain trails, or leisurely paths, we have something for you. The Shoreline Trail offers a paved, scenic cycling route along the picturesque shores of Burrard Inlet.

The City of Port Moody is proud to co-manage mountain biking trails on Heritage Mountain with the Tri-Cities Off Road Cycling Association (TORCA). Visit torca.ca for more information about forest trails with technical trail features that are suitable for mountain biking and hiking.

In the interest of public safety and to protect City infrastructure and sensitive ecological areas, any unsanctioned mountain bike trails or stunts will be immediately removed by Parks staff and the area restored to a natural condition. Please note that unauthorized trail-building activities are not permitted in Port Moody and are subject to Bylaw enforcement. See Parks and Community Facilities Rules and Regulations Bylaw (BL3321) for more information.

 Walk BC
WalkBC has created an interactive map that includes maps and detailed descriptions for trails in communities across the province, including Port Moody. This is a great resource and can help you plan your next hike!
 Alfred Howe Greenway Trail
 

Alfred Howe Greenway

The Alfred Howe Greenway trail is a multi-use trail that provides a scenic connection between the Glenayre and College Park neighbourhoods and the waterfront. This gravel trail rises and falls steeply through ravines before descending the bluff of Burnaby Mountain. Stairs are located at several points alongside the gravel trail.

Trail location

The trail is 2.2km both ways. You can access the trail at an upper (south) access point located off the parking lot of the Westhill Youth Centre or the lower (north) access off the Barnett Highway approximately 100m west of the Reed Point Way intersection.

The trail connects with the Trans-Canada Trail at Reed Point Way.

 Shoreline Trail
 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 portmoody.ca/shorelinetrail 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. 

 Trans Canada Trail

The Trans Canada Trail is 24,000 kilometres in length and is the longest recreational trail in the world. The trail is made up of hundreds of local trails that join together to form one route that spans the entire country. A section of the trail passes through Port Moody.

Explore the trail

Access to the Trans Canada Trail in Port Moody begins at Rocky Point Park. Follow the trail from the park, across the Moody Street overpass, along Clarke Street, to Douglas Street at Vintner Street. The trail then runs between Barnet Highway and the CP Rail tracks until it nears Reed Point Marina. At this point, you will cross the highway and go up the northeast side of Burnaby Mountain to Simon Fraser University.

At the eastern edge of the Shoreline Park system, the Trans Canada Trail makes its way through the Town Centre sports fields (300 Ioco Road), behind the tennis courts and City Hall, across Knowle Street and through Pioneer Memorial Park. It then passes through Newport Village and connects with Ungless Way near Eagle Ridge Hospital and finally to Guildford Way and into Coquitlam.
