Note because of the many trails, it is very important to keep the same pace and together so we will be going at a reasonable pace.
I will be doing this every alternative 2 weeks
Start the trail at the Park Centre on 16th Avenue at the parking lot (washrooms there) and walk across 16th into the forest. We follow Cleveland trail, then Along the trailsback along swordfern trail, then heron back to the park hq.
Note: washrooms are available at the start/end and at Clinton junction.
I may change the trails slightly each week in order to keep it interesting.
ps i have a separate hike at vanhikers.
A great map is obtainable here http://www.vancouvertrails.com/trails/pacific-spirit-regional-park/
takes about 2 hrs minutes at a good pace
And about 9km
