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.

Whether you visit Barnet Marine Park for an early morning walk, an afternoon picnic with the family or to watch the sunset, you’ll be rewarded by spectacular views of Burrard Inlet alongside remnants of Barnet’s rich pioneering history. The large sandy beach is a popular spot for swimming in the summer. Prefer to be on the water rather than in it? Just launch your canoe or kayak on either side of the swimming beach. No matter where you are in the park, the sounds and smells of Burrard Inlet are a welcome escape from your daily routine.

Many of your steps will carry you over the footprints of generations past. Take a walk along the shoreline, then lay down a blanket and read a book on a warm summer day. Or stop for a rest on one of the many pocket beaches and enjoy those magnificent views of the inlet.
