Maple Ridge and Pitt
Meadows have much to
offer, as this guide will
outline, from powerboating
on Pitt Lake to mountain
biking on Blue Mountain
or flightseeing over all of
it. There are attractions
like the Meadows Corn
Maze and WildPlay tree-
top course. The ACT has no
shortage of events to take
in, and Maple Ridge and
Pitt Meadows, together,
offer a variety of golf
courses to choose from.
But much of what
makes the two communi-
ties special, what makes
people move here or keep
coming back, are their
natural surroundings.
Camping in Golden Ears
Provincial Park is not only
close to home for many,
but it is loaded with trails
for hiking and horse-
back riding. The water at
Alouette Lake is as cold
and clear as any, and the
picnic area is perfect for
day trips, birthday BBQs
and family get-togethers.
The municipal dikes here
offer not only views of
the majestic Golden Ears
Mountains, but wildlife,
from eagles and hawks,
herons and cranes, all set
amongst acres and acres of
farmland and following the
path of the Alouette River.
There are more trails in
the Malcom Knapp UBC
Research Forest, and
amongst water falls at
Cliff Park and throughout
Kanaka Creek Regional Park.
Those who live here
know these trails well,
because they are all so
close to home; what better
than a Saturday morn-
ing walk in the woods?
The two communities
host many special events
throughout the year, as well
- CountryFest, Pitt Meadows
Day and Ghost Ridge are
among the best. Putting
them on requires many
hard-working volunteers – a
quality in abundance here.
Biking, hiking, canoeing,
fishing horseback riding
– you can do it all here.
Just step outside.

Tourism Maple Ridge and
Pitt Meadows isn’t just for
visitors to the area. The
organization offers plenty
for locals, too, and there are
a plethora of different ways
for people to get involved.
“We’re actually a re-
source for locals,” ex-
ecutive director Kristina
Gervais said. “We’ve got
a lot of ideas that not
everyone knows about.”
Gervais said they can
provide information
on all sorts of local rec-
reational activities.
“There’s canoeing, there’s
walking on the dikes, and
there are no more parking
fees in Golden Ears park, so
people can go experience
the beauty there,” she said.
One local activity Gervais
particularly recommends
is the self-guided Circle
Farm Tour, which offers
residents a chance to check
out local farms, winer-
ies and greenhouses.
“It’s getting to know
the people who make
it, bake it or grow it,”
she said. “It’s a really fun
drive around town.”
Gervais said another
intriguing activity comes
from the Red Hawk Survival
Training Institute.
“They actually take
you out in the woods
and teach you how to
survive,” she said.
Residents can find out
much more of what the
local area has to offer on
the organization’s web-
site, www.mapleridge-
pittmeadows.com, which
features information on
everything from arts and
culture events to maps
and information on almost
every conceivable out-
door activity. Gervais said
they’ve focused on making
the website accessible to
residents, and their commu-
nity calendar in particular
offers an up-to-date listing
of what’s going on in town.
“Our website, we’re
constantly updating it with
new ideas,” Gervais said.
“We maintain a community
calendar of events, and
we work really hard on
keeping that up to date.”
The organization also
runs the Harris Road visitor
centre, and completed
a substantial renovation
there earlier this year.
“We just finished doing a
complete overhaul on the
visitor centre,” Gervais said.
“We look a lot different
than the old tourism office.”
One of the features of
the renovation is a com-
pletely new gift shop.

That shop features a
wide variety of merchan-
dise from local and B.C.
companies. Gervais said
one particular highlight
is their selection of First
Nations crafts and artwork.
“We have a really great
selection of First Nations
products,” she said.
“Everything is made in
B.C., and royalties are
paid to the artists.”
Other local products
they offer include Global
Coffee, roasted in Maple
Ridge, and Hard Bite
Potato Chips, which have
been featured on CBC’s
Dragon’s Den entrepre-
neurship show. Gervais said
their offerings from local
company Berry Boys have
also been a big hit so far.
“They have a huge
selection of dried blue-
berry products,” she said.
“Their family has been
farming in the commu-
nity for a long time.”
The visitor centre also has
plenty of information for
locals preparing to head
elsewhere in the province.
“We can help trip-plan for
all of B.C.,” Gervais said.
Gervais said summer is
the busiest time for the
organization, and they can
always use more volunteers.
No experience is required,
and they’ll help you get
accustomed quickly.
“We have a really great
training program.”
She said the tourism
organization’s work is
important to promoting
everything Maple Ridge
and Pitt Meadows have to
offer to a wider audience.
“People want to know,
‘Why should I come here?’”

On behalf of Maple Ridge
council, I would like to
welcome you to our com-
munity. Whether you are
here for a visit or you have
recently moved to Maple
Ridge, I know that your time
here will be pleasurable.
I have to admit that I’m
not in the least bit objec-
tive when it comes to this
community. My grandfather
came here as a settler in
the 1800s and my roots,
as with my fellow council
members, are very deep in
this community. This is not
a destination, this is home.
We’ve all raised our
families here, worked here
and take particular de-
light in enjoying the many
amenities, man-made and
natural, that Maple Ridge
has to offer. Almost every
weekend there is a com-
munity festival or special
event. My family and I
love to attend the farmer’s
market in the town centre
every Saturday from May
to October. In the winter
I love to come downtown
for the Christmas in the
Park celebration and Santa
Claus parade. Mid-summer
we celebrate Canada Day
and one of the region’s
most vibrant Caribbean
Festivals. We are a commu-
nity that loves to celebrate.
As you will quickly see,
we are surrounded by the
bounty of nature. In the
shadow of the Golden Ears
Mountain lies a series of
parks, dikes and hiking trails
that are the envy of our
neighbouring communities.
From walking, hiking, jog-
ging, cycling to horseback
riding, there’s places that
are as little as 15 minutes
from our town centre that
will allow you to take a
break from the hustle and
bustle of everyday life and
take a well deserved break.
Let me finish by saying
that one of the most im-
portant attributes of Maple
Ridge are the extraordinary
people that live and work
here. All of the great events
and festivals in our commu-
nity are organized by volun-
teers. This is a special place
and you are going to meet
amazing passionate people
that love this commu-
nity as much as I do. Enjoy
your time in Maple Ridge.
Jump in and get involved.
I know you’ll have fun.

Pitt Lake has turned into
one of the most popular
boating destinations in
the Lower Mainland.
According to Brian
Stefiuk, owner of Pitt
Meadows Marine, one of
the biggest attractions
of the lake is that there’s
room for everyone.
“It’s the size of the lake,”
he said. “You can put
1,000 boats up there and
still not be crowded.”
At 24 kilometres in
length, Pitt Lake is the
largest freshwater tidal
lake in North America.
“The local area attracts
the wakeboarders, the
waterskiers,” Stefiuk said.
For those who prefer a
scenic boat voyage with
plenty of wildlife sight-
ings, Pitt Lake has plenty
to offer from that per-
spective as well, particu-
larly with the many ospreys
who live in the area.
“We’ve got lots of wildlife
right here,” Stefiuk said.
The lake also connects to
a wide variety of trails that
can let visitors explore the
area outside of a boat.
“There’s a dock at the far
end of the lake, with biking
and hiking,” he said. “There
are also natural hot tubs.”
Stefiuk said those and
other off-water activities
can be a great alternative
if the weather turns too
ugly for powerboating.
“If it’s too bad of a day
for boating, you can walk,”
he said. “There’s a lodge at
the far end where they do
rafting and fly-fishing.”
The lake has plenty of
sandy beaches, islands and
marine campsites that are
only accessible by boat to
explore. The shore ranges
from mountainsides to
small streams and coves,
so there are a wide variety
of scenic views to check
out. Conditions on the
lake can be quite vari-
able, though, so those
days that aren’t great for
boating do happen.
“Seas can be quite large
at times. I recommend 16
feet and up,” Stefiuk said.
“It’s more stable because
the weather can change.”
Stefiuk also recommends
bringing a full comple-
ment of safety gear if
you’re going out on the
lake, including an anchor,
flares and life jackets.
“It’s better to be
safe than sorry.”

the province’s busiest
park and most popu-
lar campgrounds.
The park has three
vehicle-accessible camp-
grounds: Alouette has
205 sites; Gold Creek
has 148 sites; and North
Beach has 55 sites.
There are also two group
campgrounds and walk-in
back country camping.
Alouette and Gold
Creek have hot show-
ers and flushing and pit
toilets, while the more
rustic North Beach has no
showers and pit toilets.
Campfires are allowed
in the provided fire rings
only, unless there is a
fire ban, and firewood
can be purchased.
Camping fees in the
regular season are $30
for Alouette, $30 for
Gold Creek and $21
for North Beach.
To avoid disappointment,
use the reservation sys-
tem. Between 40 and 62
per cent of the campsites
are dedicated for reserva-
tions, with the remainder
offered throughout the
season on a first-come,
first-served basis.
The first-come sites fill
up quickly, with the “full”
sign often appearing about
mid-week throughout
the spring and summer.
You can reserve up to
three months in advance.
Reservations are taken at:
http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/
bcparks/explore/parkpgs/
golden_ears/#Reservations,
or call 604-689-9025
or 1-800-689-9025.
Access is from Dewdney
Trunk Road — turn
north on 232nd Street,
right on Fern Crescent
and follow the signs.
The park itself is prized
for its recreational op-
portunities. The extensive
system of trails within the
park provides an excellent
opportunity for hiking and
horseback riding. Alouette
Lake is a popular spot for
swimming, windsurfing,
water-skiing, canoeing,
boating and fishing.
ROLLEY LAKE
PROVINCIAL PARK
Located nearby in
northern Mission, Rolley
Lake is also quick to fill up
— catching much of the
overflow from Golden Ears.
Rolley Lake offers 64
vehicle-accessible camp-
sites. The campground
has flush toilets and hot
showers. Campfires are
allowed in provided fire
rings only, unless a fire
ban is in place, and fire-
wood may be purchased.
The vehicle-accessible
regular season camping
fee is $30 per party per
night. The seniors’ rate is
$15 per couple per night.
Campsite reservations are
accepted and first-come,
first-served sites are also
available. For reservation
information, see the Golden
Ears Provincial Park listing.
To access the park, take
Dewdney Trunk Road
east into Mission, then
turn left on Bell Road.
Less than an hour’s drive
from Vancouver, Rolley Lake
Provincial Park provides a
quick escape from urban
life. The park is a predomi-
nately flat, wilderness area
blanketed with tall, second-
growth conifers. The small,
warm-water lake provides
opportunities for swim-
ming, fishing, and canoe-
ing. Sixty-four campsites
are nestled in the trees just
minutes from the lakeshore.

14 – Discover Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows 2011
For the equine-minded,
Maple Ridge and Pitt
Meadows have a lot to offer.
ZsaZsa Stiasny of
EquuTrails said her organi-
zation, which offers guided
horseback tours through-
out the Lower Mainland,
does a lot of riding on the
Golden Ears Provincial
Park trails, in particular.
“The ones we use are pri-
marily close to the Golden
Ears park,” she said. “In
Golden Ears park, there’s
quite an extensive trail net-
work. Most of the trails start
at the main horse corral;
there’s good parking ac-
cess, good staging access.”
Stiasny said there’s a
plethora of trails to ex-
plore in the park, and
most are interconnected.
“If you wanted to ride
for a couple of days,
you could,” she said.
Not all trails are created
equal, though, and which
one to take depends
on your horse as well as
your own riding skill.
There’s a wide enough
variety of trails in the area
that everyone can find
something, though.
“It’s all different ranges
throughout the whole
Maple Ridge area,” Stiasny
said. “There’s something for
people of all skill levels.”
In Golden Ears, EquuTrails
offers everything from
two-hour trips to Mike
Lake or Lookout Point, a
half-day trip up Alouette
Mountain and full-
day tours to Alouette
Lake or Gold Creek.
Stiasny said the Mike Lake
trail in particular offers
some interesting challenges
for riders and their horses.
“It’s a pretty steep incline
at the start,” she said. “If
you go straight up and
down, it’s two hours.”
The Golden Ears trails
also connect to other
networks, including the
trails around Allco Park,
which can expand po-
tential riding options.
“You can ride down to
Allco Park and loop back
around,” Stiasny said.
There are more trails
in Maple Ridge and Pitt
Meadows than just the
Golden Ears ones, too.
Another popular area is
the trails around Pitt Lake,
where EquuTrails offers a
scenic half-day ride fea-
turing plenty of wildlife
sightings and spectacular
mountain backdrops. There
are also a wide variety of
trails on the dykes, includ-

Maple Ridge and Pitt
Meadows have long
been known for produc-
ing top-notch, world-
class athletes, with the
likes of Cam Neely, Larry
Walker and Greg Moore.
Even today, there
are a handful of local
hockey players playing
in the NHL, including
Andrew Ladd, Brandon
Yip, Brendan Morrison,
and Patrick Wiercioch.
While the common refrain
that “there’s something
in the water,” might be
good for a laugh, the truth
is it’s the hard work and
dedication of legions of
volunteers and coaches
that have helped nurture
and develop that athletic
talent over the years.
There are dozens of local
non-profit sports organiza-
tions in Maple Ridge and
Pitt Meadows offering
sporting opportunities for
both children and adults.

The Haney Farmers’
Market is now in its sev-
enth season at Maple
Ridge’s Memorial Peace
Park, with more vendors,
and more opportunities
for local residents to buy
food grown close to home.
Market manager Eileen
Dwillies said there are
more than 200 vendors
taking part in this year’s
markets, the major-
ity of whom specialize
in fresh, local produce.
“Everything at the market
has been picked that morn-
ing or the day before.”
You can also talk directly
to the farmer who grows
the vegetables, she said.
“Some people say it
costs a little bit more, but
if you care about what
you are putting into your
mouth, its more than
worth it,” said Dwillies.
Anywhere from 40 to 60
vendors take part in the
market every weekend.
Of those vendors, 80 per
cent sell locally-grown
produce and meat.
“All of our vendors are
Farmers’
Markets
Return for
Seventh Season
from B.C., the majority from
the Lower Mainland,” she
said. “I think if you hadn’t
been to the market in a
few years, you’d be quite
surprised if you came back.”
The Haney Farmers’
Market runs every Saturday
from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. until
the end of October.
The Pitt Meadows
Farmers’ Market moves
from Osprey Village to the
Pitt Meadows Spirit Square
on Harris Road this year.
“We had a wonderful
response from the people
at Osprey Village, but the
problem was that the site
wasn’t big enough,” said
Dwillies. “The Spirit Square
is going to be quite the
busy spot this summer.”
The new site features
more space for ven-
dors, and more free
parking she said.
The Pitt Meadows Farmers
Market runs Sundays from
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. from
June 19 to September 11.
A draw of a $100 Market
Shopping Spree is being
offered to people who
purchase new $10 Friend of
the Market memberships
until July 9. The member-
ship supports the work of
the Haney Farmers Market
Society and provides an
email newsletter, early in-
formation on special events
and occasional specials at
the Sizzlin’ Smokey Dog
stand which is a fundraiser
of the Society. The draw
will take place in front of
The ACT at noon on July 9.
The Haney Farmers’
Market is looking for
people interested in
volunteering or busking at
the Market. You can get
in touch with Dwillies at
604-467-7433 or hfminfo@

MAPLE RIDGE MUSEUM
The museum is located in
a well-maintained heritage
home built in 1907 for the
manager of the Haney
Brick and Tile company.
Learn how the community’s
pioneers dressed, cooked,
worked and played.
The museum is stocked
with furniture, household
items, native artifacts, a
miniature railway diorama
and Canadian Pacific
Railway caboose in the
front yard. It also houses
the community archives.
This year, the museum
is dragging out some
of its older items to cre-
ate a few new displays.
With a combination of
grant money, the museum
purchased new display
cases, said Allison White,
curator for the Maple
Ridge Historical Society.
Most of the current
display themes are being
revamped, with new items
on display for the history
logging and farming in
the district, as well as the
Japanese settlement.
“Only eight per cent of
our collection is on dis-
play,” White said, so the
new display cases will
allow for more of it to be
taken out of storage.
The museum will also
have a new Finnish settle-
ment display and one called
“Modern Convenience,”
as well as a temporary
one featuring the his-
tory of the Maple Ridge
university women’s club,
which performed puppet
shows and workshops at
the local library and at arts
centres around the Fraser
Valley, starting in the 1970s.
The club wrote A History
of Settlement in Maple
Ridge. Some of the pup-
pets will be on display.
The museum’s largest
event of the year is its
Canada Day Carnival, on
July 1, from 1-4 p.m. It will
again feature old costumes
for children to dress up in,
heritage games like bean
bag toss and croquet, as
well as face painting and
refreshments like cotton
candy, popcorn and fruit.

cated at 22520 116th Ave.,

If you love farm fresh
blueberries and cranberries,
then there is wine for you at
the Blue Heron Fruit Winery.
The Blue Heron Fruit
Winery, located at 18539
Dewdney Trunk Rd., is
a family run business
specializing in fine fruit
table and dessert wines.
Using blueberries and
cranberries grown and
harvested in fields right
behind the winery, they
have dreamed up full-
bodied wines to tempt
your taste buds.
The blueberry table wine
is a favourite for those
who prefer red wine. Serve
chilled, it is excellent with
red meats or light desserts.
The cranberry table wine
has a rich flavour and a
subtle sweetness merged
with the distinctive tartness
of cranberries. It is excel-
lent served with poultry,
veal or pasta dishes.
Both the cranberry and
blueberry sweet des-
sert wines compliment
cheesecake or ice cream
wonderfully, but also can
be served as an aperitif.
After a five-year dream
the winery was opened
in 2004 by George Flynn

The Bell-Irving Kanaka
Creek Fish Hatchery was es-
tablished almost three de-
cades ago in Kanaka Creek
Regional Park, its history
dates back much further.
The land it sits on was
originally inhabited by
the Kwantlen people.
During the 19th century,
it was settled by native
Hawaiians who worked for
the Hudson’s Bay Company,
which led to the origin
of the creek’s name.
The name of the creek
comes from the practice of
hiring labourers, or Kanakas,
from the Hawaiian Islands.
Later on, the land be-
came a working farm.
The property it sits on
and the creek was farmed
by the Cuthbert fam-
ily in the ‘20s and ‘30s.
After a couple of own-
ership transitions, the
property was sold to
Metro Vancouver and
turned into a hatchery.
It was dedicated by
Lieutenant Governor
Bell-Irving in 1983.
The hatchery is oper-
ated by Metro Vancouver
Parks, the habitat enhance-
ment branch of the federal
Department of Fisheries
and Oceans, the fisheries
branch of the provincial
Ministry of the Environment
and the Kanaka Education
and Environmental
Partnership Society. Over
its decades of operation,
it’s raised millions of fish.
The hatchery has put
close to eight million fish
through. It focusses on
chum and coho salmon
and raises pink salmon
every second year. On
average, the hatchery
releases 200,000 chum and
200,000 coho every year.
That doesn’t mean each
year is the same, though.
The numbers vary consider-
ably depending on weather
and water conditions.
The hatchery is located
at the north end of the
park, near several hiking
trails featuring picturesque
views. McClain said they
welcome drop-in visits
from hikers and tourists.
The hatchery is open
seven days a week. More
formal tours are offered
Saturday afternoons from
1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Group
tours can also be booked
for other times by calling
604-530-4983. The hatch-
ery welcomes volunteers
as well. More information
can be found by calling
604-462-8643 or visit-
ing the Kanaka Education
and Environmental
Partnership Society web-
site, www.keeps.org.

The mountain biking
scene in Maple Ridge and
Pitt Meadows has exploded
lately, and Maple Ridge
Cycle owner /operator Troy
Scott said it isn’t hard to
find good trails locally.
“Off pretty much every
road from Dewdney Trunk
up to Mission, there’s some-
thing going on,” he said.
Scott said there’s some-
thing for every mountain
biker, from those who pre-
fer serene flat rides to those
who love steep downhill
tracks with lots of jumps.
“It’s anything from rid-
ing on the dikes to expert
trails to jumping,” he said.
“There are a lot of bal-
anced trails, jump trails,
all that sort of thing.”
The trails in Golden Ears
Provincial Park in particular
offer a wide range of op-
tions for people of all skill
levels. The park features ev-
erything from singletrack to
doubletrack to wide paved
or gravel roads. There are
steep paths that will chal-
lenge experienced riders,
but there are also easy
ways down for those who
are just getting started or
prefer watching the scenery
to speeding down hills.
“It’s no different than
skiing,” Scott said. “You

Mountain Biker

For beginning riders,
the Mike Lake area inside
the park has proven to be
a great place to learn.
“Mike Lake, that’s quite
popular,” Scott said.
“There are a lot of trails
that branch off of that.”
Expert riders can
check out The Woodlot
near the Mission bor-
der, which is world-
renowned for its trails.
“Some of the best
trail-builders in the
world do a lot of work
there,” Scott said.
Scott said mountain bik-
ing can be a pretty easy
sport to learn, and our
wide variety of beginner-
friendly trails helps to make
it even simpler to pick up.
“The biggest thing
is just getting expo-
sure to it,” he said.
Scott said one of the top
ways to get going is just
to drop into one of the
local bike shops and talk
with the staff to see what
equipment and trails are
best suited to your needs.
“Get into the shop and
talk to the people,” he
said. “They’ll put you
in the type of bike for
what you want to do.”
He said the area’s wide
variety of trails makes it
easy to start slow, gradu-
ally gain skill and experi-
ence and work your way
up to the toughest ones if
that’s what you want to do,
but there are also enough
easy trails to keep those
who prefer a simpler ride
happy for a long time.
“There’s something for
everyone,” Scott said.
“The sky’s the limit.”

If you’re looking
to check out the
fishing scene
going with a
licensed guide
might be a good
way to go.
John Simms of Flyfishing
With John said licensed
guides can considerably
enhance your fishing ex-
perience, as they know the
area, which fish hang out
where and the best way to
go about getting each kind.
“As a guide, you have to
know what’s available on
what river and what lake,”
Simms said. “You have
to be licensed with the
provincial government;
there’s a test to write.”
Keeping current on the
fishing conditions on the
Lower Mainland’s wa-
terways can be a pretty
comprehensive task for
guides like Simms who
cover a vast swathe of area
on their fishing expeditions.
“I go all the way from the
Fraser River to the Pitt River,
from the Harrison River to
Alouette Lake,” Simms said.
Each of those areas has
its own hotspots and types
of fish to target, which can
mean that each fishing trip
is a unique experience.
“We do sockeye on the
Fraser,” Simms said. “We
do dry flyfishing on the
Alouette River in the sum-
mer, that’s very elegant.”
Some fish, like sockeye,
are only available in specific
years when they come back
in strong enough numbers,
but there are always some
types of fish available.
“My season starts
around April and goes
to November,” Simms
said. “There are pink
every second year, coho
and chum every year.”
Simms said each fishing
spot has its own unique
charms, but his favourite
is the Harrison River.
“The Harrison is my
home stream,” he said.
“I really enjoy it.”
Fishing with a guide
doesn’t have to be all
that expensive, and you
don’t have to be expe-
rienced. Simms charges
$250 for at least five hours
of fishing for up to three
people, including rods,
reels, lines, flies and life
jackets, lunch and free
casting lessons if desired.
“The tackle’s all sup-
plied, the lunch is sup-
plied,” he said.
Simms said the chief
advantage of hiring a guide
is the knowledge they
can provide, though. He
tries to be as generous as
possible in that area with
what he’s learned from his
eight years as a guide.
“You’re paying for the
knowledge,” he said. “I have
no problem giving lots of
knowledge to people.”
Simms said he’s worked
with everyone from begin-
ning fishermen to experts.
“I’ve had a wide range,”
he said. “I’ve had expert
fishermen from England
who just wanted a guide,
I’ve had a guy from China
who had never cast a
fly before. He hauled in
a 20-pound salmon.”
For Simms, guided flyfish-
ing is a chance to do what
he loves and make new
contacts along the way.
“It’s fun to meet people,”
he said. “It’s an enjoy-
able experience for me.”

32 – Discover Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows 2011
Enjoying the picturesque
qualities of B.C. scenery is
one of the reasons to visit
and live in the West Coast.
And one of the largest
and most popular of those
reasons is Golden Ears
Provincial Park, an incredi-
ble 62,540 hectares of wide-
ly undeveloped wilderness.
Named for the twin peaks
of Mount Blanshard, which
are said to shine gold from
the setting winter sun,
Golden Ears lies in the
Coast Mountains, north of
the mighty Fraser River.
It extends north through
untouched mountain
areas to the wall of
mountain peaks and val-
leys which divide it and
Garibaldi Provincial Park.
The park houses one of
the largest campgrounds
in the province with 353
vehicle/tent campsites
welcoming visitors to two
locations inside the park,
at Alouette Lake and Gold
Creek campgrounds, back-
country or walk-in camping
at Alder Flats on the West
Canyon Trail and Panorama
Ridge on the Golden Ears
trail, with advisories that
some of the more out
of the way sites do not
have facilities provided.
Fifty-five campsites also
adorn sandy North Beach,
an open beach in front of
the forested sites, and a
great place to watch meteor
showers in early August.
Underneath a canopy of
second growth western
hemlock, western red cedar
and Douglas fir trees, camp-
ers and day trippers can be
found exploring the park
on foot, by boat, on their
bikes and on horseback.
Campers can swim at all
campgrounds and day-
use areas and canoeing is
popular on Alouette Lake
with rentals available in
the Alouette day-use area.
Freshwater fishing is also
available at Alouette Lake,
Mike Lake and Gold Creek.
A four-lane cement
surface boat launch at
the south end of Alouette
Lake has overnight
parking available for
vehicles and trailers.
Boaters should note,
there is no nearby marina
to moor boats overnight.
The highlight of the
park is the scenery and
the highlight of Golden
Ears is the camper’s ability
to enjoy the exposure to
so much of what makes
British Columbia famous.
An extensive network
of trails through which
campers can enjoy the
scenery and explore
the area makes up over
20-kilometres of gravel/
dirt paved adventure.
Hiking, cycling and
horseback riding can be
done on any one of a series
of trails which make up the
web throughout the park.
Golden Ears has the
most available hiking trails
this close to Vancouver.
Over a dozen trails lead
to various destinations
throughout the park,
including the 8-mile/12-km
one-way journey to the
Golden Ears themselves.
Near the park headquar-
ters, small Mike Lake is
the starting point for the
Alouette Mountain Hiking
Trail – 12-miles/20-km
return – to the summit
of Alouette Mountain.
Once finished, you can
enjoy a panoramic view
Picturesque Wilderness:
Golden Ears Park
across the Fraser Valley
into Washington and west
across the Strait of Georgia
to Vancouver Island.
A shorter possibility is the
2.6-mile/4.2-km Mike Lake
Trail. Search the understo-
rey for signs of old logging
equipment and wildflowers
such as the delicate pink
azalea, with petals shaped
like five-pointed stars.
Golden Ears is a desired
destination and begin-
ning of a British Columbia
adventure for the first
time and return traveler.
Golden Ears Provincial
Park lies in the Coast
Mountains 11 km north
of Maple Ridge on the
north side of the Fraser
River. Access to the park
is by vehicle via Highway
7 or Dewdney Trunk Road
through the District of
Maple Ridge. If heading
west, turn right onto 232nd
and if heading east, turn
left onto 232nd; then turn
right onto Fern Crescent
and follow road into park.
CAMPGROUND DATES:
Alouette campground is
open from June 18 - Sept. 6.
Gold Creek campground
is open all year-round.
North Beach campground is
open from June 25 - Sept. 6.
Camp fees range from $10-
30 per party, per vehicle per
night, with rates available
to persons with disabilities
and no fees for campers
under 13 years of age.
Winter fees are in place
from October 11 to
March 31 with reduced
services provided.
The closest store is in Maple
Ridge approximately 14
kilometres away. There
is a pay phone located
at the park entrance.

The Maple Ridge Arts
Centre and Theatre
opened its doors in May
2003, following more
than 13 years of lobbying
by the arts community.
The 43,000-square-foot
building was the district’s
first multi-purpose arts
centre, incorporating
facilities for both per-
forming and visual arts.
It features a 500-seat main
stage theatre, 165-seat
multi-purpose studio the-
atre, an art gallery, meeting
rooms and a variety of stu-
dio space for visual artists.
The equipment was
paid for by a fund-raising
campaign that attracted
$2.2 million in sponsor-
ships, pledges, dona-
tions and grants.
“Having a cultural facility
in the heart of a community
not only provides a focal
point for the arts, it sends
the message that creativity
and cultural participation
and education are a high
priority for the municipal-
ity,” says ACT executive
director Lindy Sisson.
“There is no longer a
need to always have to at-
tend events in downtown
Vancouver, you can now
stay at home and experi-
ence the best in the Arts. “

The Maple Ridge Burrards senior
A men’s lacrosse team plays in
the Western Lacrosse Association,
the top summer box lacrosse
league in Western Canada.
The team dates back to 1937 when
they were founded as the Vancouver
Burrard Olympics. The name was
shortened to the Burrards the fol-
lowing year, and the team went on
to win the Mann Cup seven times
over the next fifty years, including
a span of four cup wins in seven
years (1961-67) when the team was
known as the Vancouver Carlings.
The team picked up and moved to
Surrey for the 1994 and 1995 seasons,

Golden Ears Provincial Park
Mike Lake Trail: Main Corral
to Mike Lake. Horse and hiking
trail (4.2 kilometres; suggested
hiking time: 2 hours; eleva-
tion change: 100 metres).
Incline Trail: Mike Lake to
Alouette Mountain Fire Access
Trail. Horse and hiking trail (1.2 ki-
lometres; suggested hiking time:
1 hour; elevation change: 150
metres). This steep trail follows
the “Incline” that was once used
by loggers as a route to skyline
huge logs down to Mike Lake
from the trailhead. This shortcut
eliminated 5 kilometres of the
railroad haul down the mountain.
Alouette Mountain Hiking
Trail: Top of Incline Trail via
Alouette Mountain Fire Access
Trail (10 kilometres; suggested
time: 5 hours; elevation change:
1,000 metres). The panoramic
view from Alouette Mountain is
spectacular. For many hikers the
highlight of the trail is the virgin
stands of mountain hemlock and
yellow cedar. The return trip to
Alouette Mountain can take up
to 9 or 10 hours. Be sure to carry
water in dry weather and expect
snow well into June. This trail is a
strenuous hike requiring experi-
ence and proper equipment.
Alouette Mountain Fire Access
Trail: Top of Incline Trail to desti-
nation northeast of Lake Beautiful
(7.3 kilometres; elevation change:
400 metres). The trail follows
the old fire access road through
subalpine forest and eventu-
ally through a “blowdown” area
caused by Typhoon Freda in 1962.
Menzies Trail: Park headquar-
ters to Gold Creek parking lot.
Horse, bicycling and hiking
trail (9 kilometres; suggested
hiking time: 4 1/2 hours;
elevation change: minimal).

suggested hiking time: 1 hour;
elevation change: 75 metres).

(1.5 kilometres; suggested hiking
time: 3/4 hour; elevation change:
175 metres). Good views. In
wetter seasons a picturesque
waterfall tumbles down a cliff
just beyond the Lake Viewpoint.
West Canyon Trail (Golden Ears
Trail): West Canyon parking lot
to Alder Flats. Hiking trail only
(5 kilometres; suggested time: 2
1/2 hours; elevation change: 250
metres). Trail follows an old log-
ging grade for 3.2 kilometres then
swings uphill. At this point a short
trail drops downhill to Lower Falls.
Golden Ears Trail: West Canyon
parking lot to summit of North
Ear. Hiking trail only (12 kilome-
tres; suggested time: 7 hours;
elevation change: 1,500 metres).
Follow the West Canyon Trail
from the parking lot to Alder
Flats. Beyond Alder Flats the trail
switchbacks upward on an old
logging road then heads steeply
uphill to Panorama Ridge. Most
of the elevation gain is made in
this stretch. Listen for the nasal
squeak of pikas in the rock slides.
Impressive view of Pitt Lake to
the west and mountains to the
east and north are possible from
Panorama Ridge. The ascent of
the North Ear is made from the
left (east) side across a permanent
snowfield. Extreme caution is
advised and proper equipment
is recommended. Drinking water
may be scarce in dry weather be-
tween Alder Flats and the snow-
field. The round trip to Golden
Ears is an overnight expedition for
all but the fittest hikers. Overnight
camping areas are located at
Alder Flats and on Panorama
Ridge around the mountain shel-
ter which, itself, can accommo-
date up to 8 people. Expect snow
on Panorama Ridge into July.
This trail is long and strenuous
and should only be attempted by
experienced, well-equipped back-
country travellers. No open fires
are permitted in the backcountry.
Lower Falls Trail: Gold Creek
parking lot to Lower Falls. Hiking
trail only (2.7 kilometres; sug-
gested time: 1 hour; elevation
change: minimal). A very popular,
easy walk along Gold Creek to
the 10-metre high Lower Falls. A
beach area halfway to the falls is
a good spot for a picnic or a sun-
bathe. Some of the best scenery
in the park is visible just beyond.
Rolley Lake
There are two short walking
trails in the park. Lakeside Loop
is approximately 40 minutes
return and Rolley Falls is ap-
proximately 10 minutes. For your
own safety and the preservation
of the park, obey posted signs
and keep to designated trails.
Shortcutting trails destroys
plant life and soil structure.
Kanaka Creek
Kanaka Creek Regional Park of-
fers beautiful walking trails off
of 256th Street. Rainbow Bridge
and marshes are located at the
south end, Cliff Falls at the north.
This linear park is in several
distinct units. The best trails are
at the Riverfront and Cliff Falls
sections of the park. First time
visitors are recommended to
visit Riverfront. Take Lougheed
Highway to the traffic lights at
240th Street in Maple Ridge.
Turn south towards the river and
follow River Road west 3 km to
the park entrance on your left.
Cliff falls
The focal point of Kanaka Creek
Regional Park is the falls, a spec-
tacular water canyon popular as
a picnic spot. The Canyon Trail
offers a treasure trove of natural
wonders in a short distance.
Nursery logs, sword ferns, tower-
ing Cedar, Hemlock and Douglas
Fir trees serve as a backdrop for
the tumbling and cascading creek.
Unusual tailed frogs and the dip-
per bird will be found along the
creek. Intriguing water-sculpted
rock and sandstone formations
are visible on both branches
of the creek. Because of the
precipitous cliffs, it is absolutely
essential to follow the directional
signs and not to stray beyond
marked boundaries on any part
of the Cliff Falls trail system.
The park entrance is located at
25100 116 Avenue, Maple Ridge.
Hayward Lake
A trail encircling the Hayward
Lake Reservoir offers a scenic
day hike. The east side trail is
10 km long, but there are other
interesting stops on either end.
There is a slight downhill ad-
vantage to hiking the east side
trail north to south, but if you
plan to hike the entire length,
consider using two vehicles
and parking one at each end.
Park at the Railroad Trail park-
ing lot west of the Ruskin
dam. Travel east on Dewdney

after Stave Falls dam.

Whether it’s security,
marketing the downtown
or even power washing
the streets or scrubbing
off graffiti, the Downtown
Maple Ridge Business
Improvement Association
is the eyes and ears of the
shop owners and operators
in central Maple Ridge, for
another five years at least.
Maple Ridge council has
given preliminary approval
to a bylaw that will provide
funding to allow the BIA to
carry on from 2012 to 2017.
That will create the
framework to allow a
higher levy, raising the
total take next year from
its 1,000 or so members to
$193,500 from $163,500.
Ineke Boekhorst, execu-
tive director with the BIA,
said before requesting a
renewal of the bylaw, the
association asked its mem-
bers earlier this year if it
wanted the BIA to continue.
Of the 10 per cent who
replied, all wanted the
association to keep doing
the work it’s been do-
ing the past five years.
When the BIA was first cre-
ated in 2006 the focus was
on crime and safety. That’s
improved in the down-
town, thanks to a $50,000
budget this year for that,
provided by Maple Ridge.
And thanks to the
$50,000 annual facade-
improvement program,
the place is looking good.
“Now we feel that the
downtown looks a lot
better, we feel that the
crime rate looks a lot
better. Now we feel it’s
time to do marketing.”
That will be directed
outside of Maple Ridge to
encourage newcomers,
but also aim at convincing
Maple Ridge residents of
the merits of the core area.
Boekhorst considers the
facade improvement pro-
gram one of the highlights
of the past five years.
This year, the asso-
ciation will dole out
$50,000 to eight busi-
nesses to help them in
their spruce-up efforts.
That, in turn, will gener-
ate renovations worth
$3 million as businesses
use the free money to

kickstart projects.
Complete reconstruction
of 224th Street and two
blocks along Lougheed
Highway in the downtown,
thanks to the district’s
Downtown Enhancement
Program, has also helped.
But it’s now up to the
BIA to ensure that busi-
nesses keep up their
pride in their premises,
Boekhorst pointed out.
In a report to council,
economic development
manager Sandy Blue said
the BIA wants to broaden
its focus and follow the
district’s strategic plan.
So far, the municipality
has spent nearly $60 mil-
lion on a new library, arts
centre, youth centre and
Memorial Peace Park over
the past several years.
Combined with the Smart
Growth on the Ground-
based plan, which calls for
an eco-friendly downtown,
more than 1,500 new
condos have been built
in the downtown area.
“There’s lots going
on,” said Boekhorst.
Every spring there’s
Sparkle Week, a five-day
blitz complemented by a
BIA-funded power-washing
of downtown sidewalks,
which eventually will
cover every pedestrian
path in the downtown.
Two other tasks taken on
by the BIA are the mural
program, and the speak-
ers series, where members
can network and learn.
As well, downtown Maple
Ridge’s old “Spirit” street
banners got a second life as
reusable shopping bags.
About three years ago the
Downtown Maple Ridge
BIA, in partnership with
MeadowRidge and Haney
Rotary Clubs, Maple Ridge-
Pitt Meadows Arts Council,
District of Maple Ridge, City
of Pitt Meadows and School
District No. 42 produced
about 85 nylon street
banners which helped
create a festive, colourful
atmosphere for downtown,
leading up to and during
the 2010 Games. The ban-
ners were all individually
hand-painted by school
children throughout the
school district. Eventually
these unique designs had
to be retired, so rather
than sending them to the
landfill, with the help of
the Alouette Correctional
Centre for Women, they
were transformed into reus-
able nylon shopping bags.
Converting the old ban-
ners into reusable nylon
shopping bags rather
than using new fabric:
Avoided making 21,600 •
plastic bags each year.
Avoided sending 301 •
kg (663 lb) of ny-
lon to the landfill.
Saved up to 363 •
gallons of oil.
Freed up 80 trees to •
capture and store CO2
from other sources
for a full year.
All proceeds from the
sale of the shopping bags
goes to the development
of new green spaces in
downtown Maple Ridge.
The shopping bags
come in many different
colours and sizes. Small
bags retail for $6 and large
bags for $8, or two for
$15, three for $20. They
are available from Good
Company (11987 224 St)
and Bodacious Baskets
(22321 Dewdney Trunk Rd).

The Greater Vancouver
Zoo will be the theme
for this year’s Meadows
Maze in Pitt Meadows.
Being one of the largest
corn mazes in the Pacific
Northwest, this year’s
theme will
be com-
prised of two
mazes with
6.3 kilome-
tres of paths
designed to
challenge
the most
directionally adept.
Every year the Hopcott
family’s 17-acre field
is turned into another
distinct design using a
global positioning system
(GPS). A tractor carves the
maze when the corn is still
small. It is estimated that
each maze takes one and
a half hours to complete.
In addition to the maze,
there are lots of fun activi-
ties for children, including
a petting
zoo, a bee
observatory,
hay wagon
rides, or a
barrel train
ride through
the maze
for those
who don’t want to get lost.
This year the maze won’t
be open until August
13th due to the spring’s
cold and wet weather.

Looking for a new way to
experience B.C.? Viewing it
from the air might be just
the thing. Chris Georgas,
the owner and operator of
Pacific Rim Aviation, said
his company, which flies
out of the Pitt Meadows
airport, offers a wide
variety of aerial sightsee-
ing (or flightseeing) trips.
Some of their prominent
trips include one from
Pemberton to Whistler,
one from Sechelt to
Powell River, one over to
Nanaimo and one up the
Fraser Valley to Hope.
“We fly around the local
universe here,” Georgas
said. “On an average
flight, we go for about
one and a half hours.”
Georgas said the com-
pany’s planes are perfect
for flightseeing, as their
design allows passengers
to get an unparalleled view
of the ground below.

FINDINGS
“It’s great visibility,” he
said. “We fly high-wing
aircraft, so the wing’s up
above their heads. It’s
perfect for photos.”
Their flightseeing trips
also span a wide variety
of heights, so passen-
gers can see everything
from mountaintops to
forests and rivers.
“The planes can fly at
all altitudes, so you get a
great view of the Lower
Mainland and the local
mountains,” Georgas said.
It can be quite a re-
laxing trip as well.
“The planes are very
comfortable,” Georgas said.
Pacific Rim mostly
focuses on pilot training
and charter services, but
Georgas said flightseeing
has become a growing part
of their business thanks to
its increasing popularity.
“We’ve been doing this
for over eight years and
had great response,” he
said. “We do dozens of
flights per month.”
Georgas said a flightsee-
ing trip has proven quite
a popular attraction for
tourists, as it provides a
different perspective on
B.C.’s spectacular vistas.
“It’s a great way for people
from other countries to
see the Lower Mainland,”
he said. “We have people
from all over the world.”
One of the most popular
trips for foreign visitors
heads downtown, providing
an aerial view of Vancouver
and its surroundings.
“We orbit the down-
town core, then go to
Seymour, Grouse, usually
out to Barnston Island,”
Georgas said. “It’s great
for overseas visitors.”
Flightseeing isn’t just for
tourists, though. Georgas
said plenty of locals have
caught the flightseeing bug
as well, and the Golden Ears
Bridge has made it easier
for many to check it out.
“We have a lot of people
that come from the
other side of the Fraser;
Langley, White Rock,
Abbotsford,” he said.
“White Rock, it’s only about
a 30-minute drive now.”
The wide variety of trips
offered mean if you like
what you see on your first
flightseeing expedition,
there are plenty of other
areas you can try. The Pitt
Meadows airport’s facili-
ties, including the Runway
Café restaurant, can also
help turn a flightseeing
trip into the anchor point
of an enjoyable day.
“You can spend the
morning on the deck sip-
ping coffee and watching
airplanes take off and land,”
Georgas said. “We have a
lot of repeat business.”

If you’re looking for
an unconventional ad-
venture in Maple Ridge

Prey might be for you.
Opening each year in
May, Raptors Ridge offers

ences for those wanting

oped by Karen Kamstra.
She uses strictly captive-
bred birds and has on-site
a number of red-tailed
hawks, Harris hawks, per-
egrine falcons and owls.
The facility is open by
appointment, seven days

There are several different
adventures to choose from,

time you care to spend and
how much you want to learn:

you with instruction on
handling raptors, with a
demonstration by a Harris
hawk and falconer.
Learn about local birds
of prey during this

of the challenging courses
and features, including
including Tarzan swings,
zip lines, scramble nets,
swinging logs and others
suspended between six and
60 feet above the ground.
Everyone must demon-
strate the ability to use
the equipment before
access to any course, and
every tree-top adventure
begins with a navigation
session that readies you
to tackle four colour-
coded course sections.
The rhythm of moving
through games comes
naturally as you traverse zip
lines, rope swings, scram-
bling walls, hanging nets,
wobbly bridges, and other
suspended “surprises”.
The skill level and height
of each course section
increases as you progress.
Conquer Monkido to boost
self-confidence and enjoy
a healthy outdoor lifestyle.
Play is an active method
of learning, which is why
children naturally excel at
climbing and scrambling
across our cleverly de-
signed obstacles. WildPlay’s
course elements combine
outdoor fun and chal-
lenge in a way that allows
children to explore their
limits, feel empowered, and
hone their physical skills.
The Monkido Kids course
is lower than where the “big
kids” play. Our special de-
sign ensures kids can reach
safety lines while moving
freely through their one
and a half hour adventure.
Chaperones use the wide
walking trails beneath the
course to observe their
children. Private guides are
available with advance no-
tice, additional fees apply.
The business is run on a
reservation basis. People
using the course have to
book ahead, limiting the
number of adventure-
seekers on site. However,
there will still be some
walk-in business.
Hours are from 10 a.m. to
7 p.m. during peak season
and 6 p.m. in off season.
The park is open
year-round.

Pitt Meadows – The gateway to the Vancouver Metro
Region is the perfect balance between urban appeal
and rural charm, and the natural place to invest, raise
your family and enjoy the outdoors.
Pitt Meadows Regional
Airport will open its doors
for Airport Day on June 26.
Businesses there will
allow visitors, for free, to
see the airport in opera-
tion, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
More than 40 businesses
currently operate at the
airport, spanning fields
such as aircraft parts and
manufacturing, air taxis and
charters, helicopter and
floatplane services, flight
training, hangar rentals,
aircraft maintenance, pilot
supplies and accessories,
sport and recreational
aviation, skydiving and sky
advertising. The clients of
these firms also differ, from
the recreational aviator, to
commuters, corporations
and government agencies.
Airport Day is not just for
viewing, as companies will
be actively participating in
creating lasting experiences
and fond memories for their
guests. Booths and displays
will be interactive. View
vintage aircraft, floatplanes,
helicopters, gliders and
home-built aircraft – and
sit in them to take pictures.
There will also be a
parade, band music and
an air cadets display.
Car aficionados can
lose themselves in the
show and shine.
Visit booths of the various
flying schools and Pacific
Skydivers. Children will
love the Airplane Train
and the free familiariza-
tion sightseeing flights.
“Airport Day will be a
great opportunity to view
the airport during opera-
tion from inside the fence,
or ‘airside,’” said organizers.
See aircraft arriving
and departing, watch
a demonstration of the
skydivers, observe flight
students training, as well
Pitt Meadows Airport
Opens its Doors
as floatplane demos and
Young Eagles flights by
the AeroClub for children.
“If you want to get away
from the hustle and bustle
for a bit, a great place to go
for a walk or to take a bike
ride is along the dike be-
tween the Fraser River and
the airport. The Runway
Café, a licensed restau-
rant with a patio near the
runway, is located across
from the terminal office.
Sit back and recoup from
discovering and experienc-
ing the thrill of flight.”
The Pitt Meadows
Regional Airport is located
at 100 – 18799 Airport Way,
off Baynes Road (pittmead-
owsairport.com). Walk, bike
or drive. Entry to the airport
is off of Baynes Road, and
parking is free. Washroom
facilities and food ser-
vices will be provided.

Pitt Meadows Open House
and COPA For Kids Flight
COPA Flight 16 – Aero Club of B.C. will host an
Open House and a COPA For Kids Flight Program
at Pitt Meadows Airport, starting at 10 a.m. on
June 26 – Airport Day.
Folks attending the breakfast at Langley will
have time to fly over to Pitt Meadows for the
events. Three cadet groups will be in attendance
in Second World War uniforms and will parade
with a band in front of a reviewing stand.
Vintage Wings of Canada and The Canadian
Museum of Flight will each fly their aircraft over
for static display.
Some of the COPA Flight 72 – B.C. Floatplane
Association aircraft are based at Pitt Meadows
and will initiate their destination flights from
there. This will provide an opportunity for the
COPA Fly-In AGM delegates to participate in the
Pitt Meadows activities and perhaps experience
a float plane flight as well.

The Pitt Meadows Arena
is currently undergoing
a $7.5 million renovation
that will breathe new life
into the aging facility.
The three-rink arena will
get a completely renovated
interior, with a new conces-
sion, office and skate shop,
as well as washroom and
dressing room upgrades.
Much of the work being
performed will be behind
the scenes. The piles the
facility sits on need to be
upgraded to provide better
protection from earth-
quakes. Like much of lower
Pitt Meadows, the land
the arena sits on is made
up of unstable river sand.
The arena’s heating and
air conditioning system will
also be updated, as will the
ice-making equipment.
And the ever-leaking roof?
That will be fixed, too.
The Pitt Meadows Arena
Nustadia Recreation
Inc. took over operation
for the arena in May.
The company, which
operates seven facilities
across Canada, hired Ray
Boogaards as the arena’s
new general manager
and is negotiating with a
major franchise to oper-
ate the concession.
Service interruptions
are expected as con-
struction continues
throughout the year.
Work on the sanitary
sewer line has also started
and dressing rooms will be
shutting down during the
summer months as crews
install new plumbing.
The Red Rink will
also close from July to
September to speed up
the pace of construction.
If construction crews
don’t run into surprises, the
project will be completed
before the end of the year.
