Bridgeport Recreational Trail
This ‘rail to trail’ is an east-west recreational trail built on a former Canadian National (CN) rail corridor. Located between Shell Road and Van Horne Way, this 1.5 km recreational trail travels through residential and industrial areas. Over time, this trail will provide an important link between the proposed Shell Road Greenway and the Bridgeport waterfront.
Note: Exercise caution when exiting the trail at Van Horne Way as it is used by local industries as a truck route.
The closest cycling routes linking to this area are along Garden City Way and Sea Island Way. The Richmond Middle Arm Recreational Trail and Waterfront Greenway is also close by, however access is through major intersections so it may be challenging.Points of Interest
