Trail System

Coquitlam's trail system, one of our most requested recreation facilities, totals over 90 kilometres. It also includes a portion of the
Trans Canada Trail which spans from coast to coast. 

Our trails can be enjoyed by everyone whether its for fitness, pleasure or viewing wildlife and nature opportunities. The trail surfaces are suitable to all types of activities and some are wheelchair accessible.

Coquitlam is also home to the regionally famous Coquitlam Crunch, the 2 kilometer trail located under the Hydro Right of Way in the Eagle Ridge and Eagle Mountain areas. This trail connects Eagle Ridge Park to Eagle Mountain Park and has a challenging elevation gain of 250 metres. There is a viewpoint and rest area halfway up the trail. Parking is available off Lansdowne Drive.

If You Encounter Wildlife

  • Stop and remain calm. Often the wildlife is just passing through and will simply move on if it finds no food source.
  • Do not scream or run.
  • Make yourself look big.
  • Talk in a low and calm voice while backing away slowly.

The City of Coquitlam's park maintenance team will be working in two of Coquitlam's parks to keep the trails clear and safe for users. All trail users are reminded to obey all detours and construction signage for their safety. For more information about these closures, contact parks@coquitlam.ca or 604-927-6300.

Coquitlam Crunch Trail Construction

Update: On Tuesday, Sept. 5, the stair section of the Coquitlam Crunch trail, between the two Lansdowne Dr. crossings will be closed for routine vegetation clearance and general maintenance.   The closure will be approximately between 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. Signage notifying users of the closure will be posted along the trail. 

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.

2013 Master Trail Plan

The Master Trail Plan is a comprehensive guide for planning the City of Coquitlam’s trail network. ​It shows proposed new major trail connections in addition to the 95 kilometers of existing maintained trails and pathways within the City. The network of off-road and on-road trails are intended to be complementary for pedestrians and cyclists. The Trail Development Guidelines & Standards is a supplement document to the Master Trail Plan. 

This plan will be reviewed regularly to ensure it remains up to date and integrated with other city planning and financial documents.
