The Boundary Bay Trail is 20km, extending from Centennial Beach in Tsawwassen to Mud Bay in South Surrey. Wide, flat hard packed gravel paths and no traffic make this a great biking destination with kids, with access points at multiple points along the trail. And the views! Panoramic vistas from the North Shore mountains to the salt marshes and mud flats of the bay. For novice riders, start at Boundary Bay Park for easy access to a 4km loop. Locals’ tip – check Centennial Beach Cafe hours in advance as it closes seasonally. Stop in Tsawwassen for homebaked goodies, coffee and hot chocolate to take to the beach.
