11 60 Ave, Delta, BC V4K 5G6
To get to the trail take exit 29 on the BC-99 highway from Oak Street, Vancouver.
The exit is marked as River Road and you’ll follow for a few minutes before turning right on Ferry road.
Then drive all the way to the end and park on Ferry Road before you get to the marina.
The Ladner Spirit Trail can be found on the left side of Ferry Road.
There are two entrances in the fence. Enter either one as it is a circular loop (with a few off shoots).
Time needed – 30 minutes to one hour. The many trails are very easy and you can spend as little or as much time as you want.
Opening times – 8am until 8pm in the summer/5pm October to April. Although typically the trail is not locked.
Parking – Free street parking along Ferry Road and towards the marina. You won’t have issues finding parking.
Footwear – The trail, being in a marshland area, can get muddy so don’t wear your nicest shoes. I recommend sturdy walking shoes or rain boots if it’s been raining.
Essentials – You’re not far from town so no need to bring anything more than the odd snack and some water.
Wildlife – The biggest animal you’re likely to see is a squirrel or a beaver at a distance but the trail is overrun with bald eagles so don’t forget to look up.
Dogs – Dogs are allowed on leashes. The marshes are prime hunting territory in the winter months so watch your dogs don’t run off.
Don’t forget – A camera. You’ll want to take some nice pics. Google Maps on your phone can help you plan the different trails once you’re in there too.
