Port Coquitlam Trail

   Port Coquitlam Trail network is also known as the Traboulay PoCo Trail, a 25-kilometer route that forms a circle around the community. This flat walking and cycling trail is suitable for exploring year round. The trail cuts through a varied landscape that includes forest, creek, river front, meadow and marsh.

   The downtown section winds through a park area, close to where local residents live, play and work. From there, cycle through the serene and historic Colony Farm section, which features more than 150 bird species and is one of the most bio diverse parts of the region.

   Along the south Pitt River, the trail winds past the Citadel Landing boardwalk, Peace Park and river-based industry, while offering views of the river and Douglas Island. Next is the Deboville Slough and north Pitt River section, which features splendid views of farmland and the mountains. From there, continue on to enjoy the cool shade from the tall trees along the Coquitlam River and Hyde Creek sections, particularly refreshing on a hot day.
