This is a flat trail that starts in Surrey, just a few minutes north of White Rock, BC. It is a dyke that runs along the shoreline of Mud Bay and Boundary Bay. It is mostly a compacted gravel surface, though sections where they were working were quite muddy. A short section is paved. There are many roads that access the trail along the route.


The Mud Bay end of the trail was mostly empty but there were a few walkers, bikers, and folks walking their dogs. The far end terminates in Boundary Bay park {near Tsawwassen} and there were many more folks enjoying the day along the trail as you get close to the park. Round trip is 40 kilometers {25 miles}. I rode my bike, and spent 6 hours doing it. It could be ridden in about 2 hours, but I stopped very often to watch birds and take hundreds of photos.


The day was mild {40's}, dry, hazy, a high white sky with occasional clearing and sunshine. The views towards the saltwater bay are right into the brightness, so poor for photography. I saw at least 60 eagles, probably many more. There were also Herons, Short-eared Owls, shorebirds {Dunlin, I think}, Northern Harriers, American Wigeons and others.
