Ridge ParK

难度:简单

时长:两小时

长度:4.3公里

高度:280m

Ridge Park是一个在Westwood Plateau上面的一片森林区域,集合了很对方便行人的小路的公园。这个公园是一个绝佳观赏整个Coquitlam, Burke Mountain, Mt. Baker and the Fraser Valley的观景点。

步行的道路是绕着整个公园修建的,在终点的地方人们可以爬上观景点,以便欣赏美景。官方建议从西侧开始进入公园,但事实上这条路线从哪边都非常容易开始。

在公园西南处的Parkway Blvd上还有一个非常方便的停车场供人们使用。

从Parkway Blvd的东南方登上公园之后很快会看见一个穿越高尔夫球场的小道。

在小道上行走一段时间之后会看到一个十字路口,上面有一个道路指示。你需要记住道路指示,因为在整个徒步旅行中你将会看到三次此类指示牌。在十字路口右转之后行走一段时间,路途将会变得陡起来,然后通过一个绳索桥经过一条小溪。然后在顺时针绕着公园走的时候,你会看到很多条小路通向不同的居民区,忽视这些并继续前进即可。

整条路线的最低点在1.3公里之后出现,然后就是一条陡坡前行到十字路口。

左转上山之后将会走到一个T字路口,然后右转。然后会看到另外一条小路。沿着那条看起来不是特别清晰的路直上,然后就可以到达观景台。观景台是一个开放的区域,大家应该小心。

回去的时候就是去程的相反方向。



Ridge Park

Rating: easy

Time needed: 2 hours

Length: 4.3 km

Elevation gain: 280 m

Ridge Park is a compact area of forest parkland at the top of Westwood Plateau and supports a network of easily accessible woodland trails. There is one significant viewpoint that affords impressive views out over Coquitlam, Burke Mountain, Mt. Baker and the Fraser Valley.

This hike does a circuit of the park and ends by climbing to the viewpoint, where you may want to spend some time admiring the views. For simplicity, the route is described as accessing the trail network from the west side but the route can be just as easily accessed from all sides (see map).

There is also a conveniently located parking lot on the southwest side of the park just off Parkway Boulevard.

Start by finding the eastbound alleyway just south of the pedestrian crossing on Parkway Boulevard. This soon turns into a fenced-off path that cuts through the executive golf course.

After the fencing stops, you will reach a four-way intersection with a trail sign. Memorize this crossroads location as you will be visiting it three times on this walk. Turn right and follow the undulating path as it contours above the fairways.
After a while, the trail will start descending quite steeply, passing over a small creek with a rope handrail. As you circle counter-clockwise around the hill, there will be several paths heading out right towards the houses. Ignore these to keep on the path that completes the loop.

The low point will be reached about 1.3 km into the hike, after which it’s just over another kilometre of steady climbing back to the four-way intersection.

Turn left uphill at the intersection and follow the trail to a T-junction, where you’ll turn right. After seeing another trail on your right, keep on the less distinct trail that continues straight on. Follow this up and then down to the viewpoint, which presents itself as an open rocky ledge. Be careful near the edge as there is a steep drop-off.

Return the same way as far as the first junction, where you will turn left downhill towards the loop path. Turn right at the loop path and then left when you reach the four-way intersection.
