Salmon Creek Greenway Trail Reviews

I ride this trail often because its only 2 miles from my home in north Vancouver. The 3 mile trail is smooth asphalt with some minor hills and a scenic bridge. The soccer and baseball fields adjacent to the trail make for some extra fun while you walk or ride along the trail. There is a wildlife refuge along the north shore of Salmon Creek that gives an opportunity to take in the various wild creatures that abound in the area. You can also take in a swim in Klineline Pond after your hike. The creek is prone to flooding in the wetter springs and early summer.

Ride this trail most every time I want to traverse across town, it can get busy which shows just how much we need trails and outdoor spaces like this. The setting is nice, it boasts a good mix of tree lined sections, and some nice views throughout the open areas. You get the feeling of being farther away from city than you actually are.

This trail is a mixture of sunny and shady. Perfect for a bike ride with my dog.

The only thing upsetting was all the trash in the parking lot, what's wrong with people, it's getting worse everywhere. So needless to say, I spent about 15 minutes picking up trash.


Well maintained trail, asphalt paved; there are some dirt side trail if you want to go creeksidenin places. Nice mixture of shaded trail and open grassland meadow with some next to the creek. Park benches are set along the trail and mileage is marked as you go along, also. User observed ranged from walkers to bikers, even some joggers. Also saw there is active restoration of habitat.

My family has done this ride several times. It's an easy ride for kids and it's very scenic (nice trees, ponds, creek, and wildlife).
