Regional District of Nanaimo - Top Bridge Regional Trail

Top Bridge Regional Trail

Top Bridge Regional Trail

Inaugurated in 1999, the Top Bridge Trail connects Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park on the Strait of Georgia with the Top Bridge Crossing, a magnificent pedestrian-cyclist suspension bridge spanning the Englishman River at a lively junction of parks and conservation area. The trail is five kilometres in length each way and offers a rustic ramble or bike ride away from the urban sea-side to the cool woodlands of the Englishman River. The mid-section of the trail passes through private property: users are requested to stay on the authorized trail route and respect private property. At Top Bridge, take a break, take a dip or just sit back on the rocks and enjoy the beauty of a famous salmon river.
