Velodrome “Grind” Trail on Burnaby Mountain

– One of Burnaby’s hidden gems.

Workout in your own backyard! The Velodrome Trail is a 1,400 metre long route that begins from the gravel parking lot at the Doug Drummond trailhead located just north of the Harry Jerome Sports Centre on the north side of Barnet Highway.
Hikers’ experience natural forests through the gradual (average grade 20%) 240 vertical  metre elevation climb. Reaching the hillside base are the impressive 500 timber stairs that wind up the steep slope and into Pandora Trail. The trail continues until it enters the open meadow below Horizons Restaurant and there you discover the outstanding towering Kamui Mintara totems, reach the highest point of the route and savour the breathtaking views of Burrard Inlet and Indian Arm.

Trailhead signs are located at each end of the trail and contain a topographic trail map, detailed trail information and trail safety tips.

You can return to the car park down the same route, which takes about 25 minutes (depending on your pace), or enjoy a longer 9.4 km loop that uses the Trans Canada Trail, Cougar Creek Trail, Barnet Trail and Mountain Air Trail.
