Temporary Closure: Barnet Trail (located in the Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area)  

Commencing in early August the Barnet Trail (located in the Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area) will be closed for repairs and improvements. BC Hydro will be replacing culverts on four of the creek crossings. The project will last for approximately two weeks and the Barnet Trail is anticipated to reopen by mid-August. The construction contractor will make every effort to have the trail open for the weekends.

BC Hydro recognizes the work may be an inconvenience for trail users and appreciate your patience. Please use caution while crews and equipment work in the park. Map of the approximate work locations. 

Should you have any questions about this project please contact BC Hydro at 1-866-647-3334 or stakeholderengagement@bchydro.com Project updates will be posted on this webpage.

Trailblazing is a breeze in Burnaby. With over 230 kilometres of paths and trails, the city offers a diverse mix of adventures that range from easy strolls and moderate hikes to marathon outings. Why add some trail mix to your lifestyle diet? Health and exercise, of course, but perhaps more important is the fact that our trails offer urban dwellers a rare chance to absorb nature in the raw – fresh air, changing weather patterns, birds, plants, trees, wildlife.

Many of our trails are designed for multi-use purposes. Some are designated for cycles. Others allow off-leash dogs. Investigate the many and varied options by clicking on the links below. And if you like to walk or jog in circles, be sure to check out the outdoor tracks at Burnaby Central Secondary School, Cariboo Hill Secondary School, Byrne Creek Secondary School and at Confederation and Kensington Parks. These well-maintained facilities allow one to stay in shape in a thoroughly safe environment.
