Towner Road Trail

Skirting along the shoreline and waterfront homes of Towner Bay, the Towner Road Trail connects Towner Road to Derrick Road and to Towner Park Road. A lovely trail through second growth Douglas fir forest while surrounded by residential homes, the trail can be reached from the southern end of Derrick Road as well as from the west end of Towner Park Road. The pathway is gravel along some sections and in other the trail is padded with wood chips. Either way this route is lovely along its one hundred and seventy meter length from Derrick Road as there is only a slight slope. The trail from the end of Towner Road to Towner Park Road is more rolling and curving over its two hundred and fifty meter length. This part of the trail meanders along the ridge of small creek that drains into Towner Bay, passes by a garden with some large rhododendrons. This pathway is a great spot to walk your dog, include in a cycling tour of Deep Cove as well as just relax and meander along.
