Description
From Tilley's, the route takes you down Fir Street and then to the Granville Island/False Creek area for a pleasant walk along the seawall of this beautiful redeveloped area of Vancouver. The 10 km route crosses False Creek via the Cambie Street bridge and then a short turn through the Plaza of Nations. The 12 km route goes around Granville Island before continuing around the end of False Creek, passing the 2010 Olympic Athletes Village and Science World. Both routes continue along the seawall on the north side of False Creek. The 10 km route takes a ferry boat back to Granville Island market (small charge required). A quick lap around the market and then back to Tilley's. The 12 km route goes across the Burrard Sreet Bridge and back up to Tilley's. Take time to browse around the shops on Granville Island or stop for a snack or lunch.

This walk goes past the Trans Canada Trail pavilion on Granville Island. It's a chance to get a "pavilion" stamp in the new TCT Program booklet.

PTs

The PTs maintained by the Surrey Trekkers utilize trails in major parks throughout our area. All of these walks do involve some street walking which show the diversity of housing in the area.

In the parks, waterfowl, spawning salmon, wild rabbits, squirrels and coyotes are a common site. Enjoy a coffee or other snack at Esquire’s after your walk or do a little shopping at Tilley’s for their famous line of sports clothing. They appreciate your patronage.
