TRAIL NOTES: 10th Anniversary of Fort to Fort Trail

The Bedford Channel has become a busy paddling and rowing centre

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the completion of the popular Fort to Fort Trail that connects two major regional parks, Brae Island and Derby Reach. The site of the first Hudson’s Bay Post established in 1827 is located in the Derby Reach Regional Park. The Fort to Fort Trail connects this historic site with the National Historic Site in Fort Langley where the post was subsequently relocated by the Hudson’s Bay Company. The trail, which is now part of the Trans Canada Trail, provides the artists at the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery with plenty of subject matter for their paintings. Come to the Gallery to see how the artists are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Fort to Fort Trail.
