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.

Beautiful, natural water views can be found throughout the City. In the north, Barnet Marine Park stretching along the ocean shores of the Burrard Inlet. In the south, you can walk along the shoreline trails of the Burnaby Fraser Foreshore Park and see the bustling Fraser River. In central Burnaby, there are two parks, Burnaby Lake Regional Nature Park and Deer Lake Park, where you can walk through the trails and get in touch with nature.
