Langley’s Fort to Fort Trail
The Fort to Fort Trail is a trail in northern Langley. It runs along the bank of the Fraser River between Derby Reach Regional Park and the town of Fort Langley.
The trail begins near the Fort Langley National Historic Site. From there, it winds through the town of Fort Langley before connecting with Derby Reach Regional Park. The site of the original fort is located within the park (although there isn’t a lot that remains to be seen).
The trail takes about 2.5 hours to walk (plus or minus) and is 8 kilometres roundtrip. Since the trail is mostly flat it is very easy to go along. The trail is also paved in some parts and packed gravel in others. As a result, it is stroller and wheelchair-friendly. It’s also a nice trail for leisurely bike rides.
The Fort to Fort Trail is also a part of the much longer Trans-Canada Trail.
Public washrooms can be found about halfway down the trail, just before Derby Reach Regional Park.
Points of Interest
Interesting places along the Fort to Fort Trail include Derby Reach Regional Park and the Salmon River Pump Station. There is also the Fraser River Pier Viewpoint which gives a great view of Brae Island Regional Park on the other side of the water.
There are other sites on or close to the trail but located within the town of Fort Langley (so not involving too much walking to get to). These include Marina Park, Riverside Plaza, the Langley Rowing and Paddling Centre, Fort Langley Heritage Train Station, Langley Centennial Museum, BC Farm Machinery & Agricultural Museum and the Fort Langley Historic Site.
