  The course will consist of a 10 kilometer loop mostly on the south side of Sixteenth Avenue. 

Course Description:

The # refers to the trail numbers as shown on the official park map available at the Park Centre. 

DIRECTIONS FOR THE 10K LOOP: Start and Finish is the gate at the parking lot entrance.

  • Go north through the back of the parking lot onto #2, Cleveland to #10, Heron.
  • Left onto Heron to #21, Salish.
  • Left again onto Salish and across 16th to the continuation of Salish.  Stay on Salish until you reach #12, Imperial trail.
  • Left on Imperial to #22, Sasamat.
  • Right on Sasamat to junction of #19, St. Georges.
  • Right on St. Georges to Camosun Street.
  • Right on Camosun Street, just after the school on your right you will see a trail entrance, take that short trail to the big information board at the corner of Camosun, 41st Ave and S.W. Marine Dr.
  • Take the SW Marine trail that parallels the highway.  After about .75 K you will come to an intersection.
  • Go right for a very short distance and then left onto the trail that goes into the forest. 
  • This is trail #21, Salish.  Do not take the Clinton trail #3 or the trail that continues to parallel the highway.
  • Follow Salish, Heron and Clevland all the way back to the Park Center.
  • Do it again and again and....  Reverse directions if you want a change of scenery.
