Illecillewaet Greenbelt Pathway

Rating: 2 stars.

Use: Walking, Running, Biking.

Difficulty: Easy.

Distance: Varies, 5.6 km one way for complete pathway.

Description: The very popular ‘Greenbelt’. Summer and winter, this path gets a lot of traffic. A paved path that gives you a good view of the valley, not to mention our local sawmill and local power substation.

Directions: Lots of options to start and end this path. For the complete version start at Centennial Park and finish at Powerhouse Road. Although I have included a GPS point for the Vernon Ave Trailhead, it is not recommend that you walk through the sawmill’s yard to access it. Though this is a public road, the chances of getting in someones way are high.
