Matsqui trail is a long and flat trail. It's a perfect low level walk that is snow free. It is also part of the Trans-Canada Trail. It follows dykes along the Fraser River directly across from Mission.

Its features include a river walk, view of ships, and, wheel-chair access.

The park is open during the days, and is a nice alternative for those looking for a little variety in their river walk/run routine.

If you just want a couple of hours to get out, this is the perfect excursion.

Horse poop breaks down but dog doo dool doesn't. I would lke to see signs posted for huge fines by these lazy people. It ruins our walk in a beautiful place. also more clean up in the outhouse plse.

ANSWERS are in this forum:  doggy bags

Downside Watch when you go because the lower trails were flooded and the higher trails were good but lots of loose gravol that my son hated Comment If it werent for the flooded trails this would have been a boring ride for me. while my kids rode the upper trails I stuck to the lower flooded trails and had a blast.

Downside Too easy for the avid hiker, and packed with mosquitoes in the summer. Comment Adequate for youngsters of all ages.

Lots of different access points and picnic areas. Lots of opportunity to see wildlife. Downside Can be busy during the summer weekends and watch out for mosquitos while the Fraser is in flood. Also, sections of the trail may be closed during the flood. Comment This trail is part of the Trans Canada trail system with accessability for walkers, cyclists and riders. If you enter the trail from any one of the several points along Harris Rd, you will be able to enjoy the wilder side of the trail. From the mill (other side of the train tracks) back almost to Mt. Lehman Rd the trail is narrower and will take you through tall trees and marshy areas (but the trail itself is always dry). Look for various species of waterfowl in the creeks as well as the resident beaver in the culvert. The variety of plants and wildflowers has to be seen to be believed - look for the fawn lilies in late April, they only bloom from about 1 week. This section of the trail is used extensively by riders so beware of galloping horses. Also, if you walk your dog, keep it leashed as horses and dogs do not always mix well - with either the rider or the dog getting the worst of it.
