The walking route known as the Fort To Fort Trail connects the Fort Langley National Historical Museum with the site of the original fort near Derby Reach Regional Park. The 4km trail is a popular walking or family-friendly biking path.
The route begins from the National Historic Museum but many people begin the route from the train crossing at Glover Road and Mavis Avenue. At the end of the Fort To Fort Trail, you can extend your route by following the Edgewater Trail or completing the Houston Trail loop in Derby Reach Regional Park before returning along the Fort To Fort Trail back to Fort Langley.
From the National Historical Museum, walk along Mavis Avenue heading westbound to the intersection with Glover Road. Cross the train tracks and immediately go left along Billy Brown Road for about 40-metres to a circular opening with benches and historical information about logging. Cross the street and walk towards the river, veering left onto the gravel trail and heading west along the Fraser River.
The trail leaves the busy Fort Langley area and follows the a gravel path with several small wooden piers offering scenic views of the nearby waterway. Pass over a small channel as you leave the sight of homes and continue following the trail behind the Fort Langley Golf Course.
Eventually, the Fort To Fort trail reaches a road as you continue to follow the gravel path along the side of Allard Crescent. The trail veers to the right and leaves the road, passing scenic meadow views.
As the trail approaches the road once again, the Fort To Fort Trail ends where by a parking lot across the street for Derby Reach Regional Park. From this point, you can either return via the same route, cross the street to the parking lot area to walk around the Houston Trail, or continue in the same direction you arrived along the Edgewater Trail further into Derby Reach park.
