    Route Description for Port Moody Shoreline Trail

    The Port Moody Shoreline Trail is a popular route along the eastern shore of the Burrard Inlet that passes through several parks and beach areas. As such, the trail can be quite busy with hikers, runners, bikers and beachgoers, making an early arrival to this trail a necessity. The route itself is a combination of non-technical dirt, paved, and boardwalk paths with almost no change in elevation. This means that you can leave the hiking boots and extra gear at home for this easy hike near Port Moody.

    This trail is a popular one due to its easy terrain, access to amenities, nearby wildlife, and beautiful views. As the route skirts along the eastern shores of the Burrard Inlet, hikers on the trail will have beautiful views out over the water toward nearby Burnaby Mountain from almost any point along the trail.

    Setting out from the parking area, make your way toward the water to pick up the Shoreline Trail and follow it east into the tree cover. From here, the trail will wind along the water’s edge until the tree cover breaks, giving you amazing views of the Burrard Inlet. Continue along the forested trail as it works its way along the northern shore of the inlet, eventually arriving at the beach within Old Orchard Park. After spending some time along the beach admiring the views of Burnaby Mountain across the water to the south, set back out along the same route to return to the carpark having completed the Port Moody Shoreline Trail.
