The charming community of Port Coquitlam offers an opportunity to escape the bustle of the big city, while still being relatively close to downtown Vancouver. Situated just 27 kilometres east of Vancouver, Port Coquitlam - often referred to as "PoCo" by locals - is home to many outdoor experiences, including the famed Traboulay PoCo Trail.
As one of the city's foremost attractions, the Traboulay Poco Trail is a 25-kilometre trail that loops around the city and crosses a diverse landscape that includes creeks and forests, meadows and marsh, as well as urban and riverfront development areas. The trail is a popular year-round recreational activity among cyclists, runners, skaters and walkers.
The trail's flat 10-kilometre stretch along the Fraser River and Pitt River boasts incredible views and wildlife-viewing opportunities. As well, the five-kilometre DeBoville Slough trail features stunning scenes of nearby mountains and local wildlife, including bald eagles and blue herons.
Colony Farm Regional Park is located in Port Coquitlam off of the Lougheed Highway is a scenic park with views of the Coquitlam River, nearby fields, and distant mountains.
