Most of the track is an official Burnaby 'Urban Trail' to be shared with pedestrians, joggers and in-line skaters. However, in times of Covid-19 walkers have greatly increased and so bicycles must make allowances. Update:

April 17, 2021 - New sections of the rail have now been completed. These segments increase width and change some dirt sections to smooth pavement.
