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

Avoid the crowds and try these trail options:

Use Responsibly to Stop the Spread of COVID-19

The City is closely monitoring parks and trails to ensure all users are:

  • Following all posted guidelines and Park Host direction for use (e.g. one-way and single-file travel at busy spots/times);
  • Staying at least two metres (six feet) away from others;
  • Walking in small groups of 2-3; and
  • Staying home if sick or exhibiting symptoms.

We also strongly recommend:

  • Walking single-file and/or stepping off the trail when passing people; and
  • Warning other trail users of your presence when passing from behind, particularly if cycling.

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.

Popular Trail Destinations

Below are some of our more popular trails:

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.
