Burnaby Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"The mixed forest surrounding Simon Fraser University on Burnaby Mountain provides all-season walking conveniently close to Vancouver. Since the transfer, in 1996, of 313 ha (773 acres) of university lands to Burnaby Mountain Park, improvements to the trail system have been under way."

"An intricate trail network surrounds the mountaintop campus of Simon Fraser University. While the woodland paths are a favorite with mountain bikers, they are open to hikers too. Explore the steep slopes of Burnaby Mountain to find quiet routes and
simply enjoy the forest. Then, head up to see the Japanese totem poles and views from Centennial Way."

"This loop incorporates the Trans Mountain Trail, not, as you might suppose, an ambitious trail traversing a mountain range, but a delicious little path of less than 1 km (0.6 mi) in length, created as a gesture of good neighbourliness along the margin of its property by the Trans Mountain Pipe Line Co.

It may, however, be treated as the prelude to a ramble through the residential clusters on Burnaby Mountain’s south face, following a series of linking paths and stairways."

"Everyone knows that Simon Fraser University is situated on top of Burnaby Mountain; not so many are aware, perhaps, that the mountain is also the site of Burnaby’s Centennial Park, which lies about 800 m to the west of its illustrious neighbour. It is in the park that this walk has beginning and end, the two separated by a circuit of about 8 km (5 mi)."
