Description

Starting from Ambleside, the trail begins behind the Park Royal Mall. It follows the river for about 500m, passing under bridges and behind buildings. The trail then climbs a flight of stairs and a reasonably steep hill. At the top of the hill, turn right and follow the road to the highway underpass. From here the trail follows a gravel road for about 1.5km before entering the Capilano Trail network just north of the service entrance to the Capilano Suspension Bridge. The trail then continues as singletrack - see Capilano Pacific Trail (North).
