Coquitlam Crunch Trail

Eagle Ridge Park to Eagle Mountain Drive



Construction Information

From July 2017 until spring 2018 construction of a new watermain will be taking place along the Coquitlam Crunch trail from Guildford Way to David Avenue.

Small detours will be in place along the trail throughout the construction period from July 2017 until spring 2018. This includes a closure of the stairs in October 2017; however, to mitigate the disruption to trail users a detour will be in place that will include a new, permanent second set of stairs. There will be no impact to the Coquitlam Crunch Challenge in September.


"Doing the Crunch" (map) is a popular fitness challenge for many local residents. Hikers and fitness walkers enjoy the natural setting and spectacular views of the City on this uphill climb.  

More than 400 timber stairs comprise a 295 metre portion of the 2.2 kms of the trail, which follows the BC Hydro right-of-way and extends to the top of  Westwood Plateau -– a 242 metre elevation gain.

The Crunch can be accessed from Eagle Ridge Park, Guildford Way, Lansdowne Drive (two access points), David Avenue and Bramble Park at Panorama Drive – caution should be used when crossing these busy roadways.   

Washrooms and parking available at Eagle Ridge Park and Bramble Park.
