This is the first link in the regional greenway network and is part of the Central Valley Greenway connecting Vancouver to New Westminster. When completed, it will extend 16 km from Burnaby Mountain to the Fraser River.
It follows the Burnaby Mountain Urban Trail; drainage corridors along Stoney Creek and the Brunette River, and streets in New Westminster to reach Sapperton Landing and, eventually, New Westminster Quay.
Some sections are sewer and storm water service routes - be prepared to encounter large trucks.
The section of trail through Brunette River Conservation Area is the most accessible, with a semi-firm trail surface (crushed, packed gravel). This section of greenway is at least 3 m wide, is 2 km long. The section of the Brunette-Fraser Regional Greenway through Hume Park has a steep section which may be a barrier to some cyclists or wheelchair users. There is an accessible washroom located at the lower level of Hume Park near the playing fields.
