The Fort to Fort Trail is a pleasant 4 seasons trail linking Fort Langley to Derby Beach Regional Park. It can be combined with other trails and roads for a longer ride.
Starting at the Fort Langley Historical site, head west on the road following the distinctive sign posts past the old CN station. You will soon reach the Fraser River. Stop and enjoy the views of Mt. Baker and Golden Ears.
On the good gravel trail, you soon reach Allard Crescent. The trail follows the road for a distance before heading back towards the river and into the heritage part of the Derby Beach Regional park.
At this junction you will see a sign indicating the Edgewater Bar trail. Follow it to the main park and camping area.
For a quick return, turn left leading out of the park and follow Allard Crescent back to Fort Langley. On this ride I went right along Allard to a left turn onto 208th, then left on 96th and back to the Fort. I even had to ride the last few kilometres with a slow leak in my front tire.
Take Highway 1 to 200th street exit north and then right onto 96th and follow the signs to Fort.
Langley, or take Lougheed Highway to the Albion Ferry and park at Albion and get on the bike and ride into town and the start of the trail.

UpsideBeautiful walk. I just did it today and it was so peaceful and relaxing. Very friendly people and fantastic views. DownsideThe only downside I can think of was the bugs :( CommentI can't wait to do this walk in the fall and winter.

UpsideThe trail is great - beauty is in the eye of the beholder. No traffic, nice people, leashed dogs, fantastic smells, open air, clean trail, and wonderful community. Enjoy sangria or gelato after your walk. Does life get better? DownsideZip!

CommentMy wife and I are locals and we love this all seasons walk - it's totally family and there's always something interesting to see in the way of bird life. trail side plants, or river activities. An added bonus is that if you start and end in Fort Langley there are mant excellant coffee spots for refreshments at the end of outing.

CommentDoes Langley not exist? Why is this trail linked to Abbotsford and not Langley? Same with Stokes Pit?

UpsideEasy walk. Great for people of all ages as this is not a hike, but a walking trail along the fraser river. Trail takes you from the present day Fort Langley historic site to the site of the original Fort Langley further west along the river at Derby Reach. Best views across the river to the peaks of Golden Ears. DownsideAn urban trail, don't expect unspoiled beauty. CommentThis trail is literally 200 feet from my house. In my opinion it offers nothing spectacular as far as scenery or views. The fraser river is not the nicest or cleanest to look at. It's not worth visiting Fort Langley just to do the trail. But, if you're in town it offers a nice walk or is great for jogging. The trail should definitely be rated easy and not average.
