Delta, BC, features an extensive trail and path network ideal for cyclists of all ages, skills and abilities. Ladner’s scenic Millenium Trail connects Deas Island to the historic village of Ladner. From Ladner, follow the Great Blue Heron Way west to Brunswick Point, along the shores of the Salish Sea, past the BC Ferries’ Tsawwassen Terminal and into the community of Tsawwassen. The Boundary Bay Dyke trail follows the tide lines of Boundary Bay from Tsawwassen towards North Delta; take a quick trip along the farm roads and you’ll find yourself in Watershed Park and it’s collection of biking trails.
Delta, BC, is well-known amongst bird enthusiasts as the place to see and be seen. While migratory birds steal the show October-April, a variety of waterfowl and other bird species call Delta home in the summer months. Start your bird tour at Boundary Bay Regional Park, navigating the boardwalks and trails cutting through the marshland and tall grasses. Head over to the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary and take a tour through acres of protected habitat. Finish up the day at the Delta Nature Reserve at Burns Bog, where interesting birds can also be seen.
