Exploring Our Trails

DISCLAIMER: These are nature trails and are made of the native materials present on site. They are designed to provide basic access for slow pedestrian walking and bird-watching through habitats critical to the birds. Visitors need to watch their footing and look out for irregularities in the natural terrain. Watch for raised roots, for example, when exploring treed dykes, and be aware that right after bad weather, there is a lot of puddles as native soils do not drain quickly. Seasonally, a wide variety of conditions can occur on the trails so wear good footwear, and use our trails at your own risk.

Sites To Visit

A two-storey (10 m high) observation tower is located in the northwestern corner and provides an excellent view of the shallow ponds, the intertidal marshes of the Fraser River estuary outside the dykes, the ocean (Strait of Georgia) and landmarks in the Vancouver area.

Another viewing area with wheelchair access is only 15 minutes walk from the entrance gate, and overlooks the marshy islands and ponds of the south half of the Sanctuary.

There are several small buildings along the trails. These are "bird blinds" or "hides" and are designed with small slat-like windows so that visitors can view the birds outside without disturbing the birds.
