    Route Description for Robert Burnaby Park Loop

    The Robert Burnaby Park Loop is part of an extensive and densely forested network of trails through the park, and as such, it can be easy for hikers to lose their way along one of the many side trails. It is best to familiarize yourself with a trail map or bring a GPS along for the hike to ensure that you keep on the proper route. Additionally, Ramsay Creek runs through the park, so while proper hiking footwear is not necessary to use the trail, it couldn’t hurt to have some water-resistant footwear.

    While this route through the park does not have any scenic views, it does pass through a beautiful stretch of forest that can serve as the perfect place to clear your head if you are looking for that “out of the city” feeling. In addition to the web of trails that are concentrated in Robert Burnaby Park, the area also boasts a variety of recreational spaces such as tennis courts, sports fields, and an outdoor swimming pool. There is no limit to the amount of fun that you can have in this little stretch of forested park.

    Setting out from the parking area off 4th Street, make your way around the baseball diamond to pick up the trail on its southeast corner. Follow it to the northeast, and go right at the junction to cross over Ramsay Creek before turning left onto the path immediately after the crossing. Keep straight on this path as it hugs closely to the creek before crossing back over it near the centre of the park.

    The middle of the park has a dense concentration of trails, so keep an eye on the GPS to follow the trail as it turns north. The park isn’t overly large, so don’t worry if you do end up getting lost, as you should be able to find your bearings fairly quickly.

    Continue along the north side of the Robert Burnaby Park Loop as it passes by the Trans Canada Highway and turns back toward the south. From here, you will briefly exit the dense tree cover along a powerline clearing before re-entering the forest on the opposite side. Make your way through the park, keeping 4th Street on your right until you return back to the parking lot, where you started your hike.
