The Fraser Valley Regional District’s Outdoor Recreation Guide is an online service that provides information on some of the world-class hiking opportunities that are available throughout the Fraser Valley. This service includes an interactive web map as well as a searchable database containing numerous hiking trails for all skill levels, from popular favourites to hidden gems. Trails can be searched by map as well as by name, general area, difficulty, or duration. Once a trail has been selected, directions to the trailhead, a trail description, and a trail map are available for download.
The Outdoor Recreation Guide has been made possible by funding through the Province of British Columbia’s Community Tourism program. This program was established to help local governments showcase local communities and highlight regional tourism opportunities. The Regional Planning Department oversaw the development of the Outdoor Recreation Guide.
