Boundary Bay Regional Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Walk along Boundary Bay’s glistening mudflats and extensive intertidal marshes, beholding birds—hundreds of thousands of them! A Canadian IBA (important bird area; www.ibacanada.com), Boundary Bay is one of the best places in the Salish Sea for observing migratory and residential birds. The beaches on this hike and views of North Shore peaks (north of Vancouver) and the North Cascades aren’t too bad either.

A popular hiking destination just north of the 49th parallel, Bounday Bay Regional Park offers a handful of delightful family-friendly trails."

"Boundary Bay has gone to the birds—snowy owls, hawks, plovers, and trumpeter swans to name a few. This is one of the Vancouver area’s most important habitats for migratory birds, and 1.5 million birds make a journey to the wide, sandy bay just north of the 49th parallel each year. A flat, gravel trail takes you on an easy shoreline hike and past protected areas before looping back to Centennial Beach. Boundary Bay is a 16-kilometer (10-mile) sweeping curve, just north of the 49th parallel north. While you’d expect huge Centennial Beach to be packed Bin summer and near desolate in winter, that’s not quite so. When it’s not beach season at Bounday Bay, it’s birding season. About 1.5 million birds, coming from a collection of 20 countries, feed in the bay’s tidal flats, wetlands, and grasslands each year. The park is fairly small with a varied mix of habitats."

I commenced this walk at 104th Street and the trail by Delta Air Park. It was a windy, cloudy day and I came with my camera and 300mm lens to take pics of the bald eagles and other raptors that frequent this area.

Not many walkers today but it was an enjoyable ramble for about four miles walking east past 112th Street and lunching in a copse by the bay.


I managed to get some photos of bald eagles and a hawk. There were hundreds of Northern pintail ducks occasionally being harrassed by the eagles. All in all and enjoyable day.
