This is one section that cyclists might not mind going there and back making for a longer ride and it feels like a different ride on the way back. One never tires seeing and riding this section of trail that takes in the Coquihalla Canyon with its tunnels and trestles. Expect this rail grade to be on a gentle slope.
Chilliwack Lake to Thurston Rec Site t73
This is definitely one of the more challenging rides on the Trans Canada Trail but expect it to be great fun, especially, if you are a mountain biker. Some of us would definitely need to push our bike uphill in some sections. What a great way of appreciating this great valley. This definitely needs to be travelled from Chilliwack Lake down the valley to Thurston. Allow about 4 hours for this ride.
Cultus Lake to Tamihi Rec Site t72
This is quite an adventurous rewarding section of the Trans Canada Trail with some hill climbing and quite a lot of Forest Service Roads. There is a pleasant greenway at both ends of this trip, that is, at the Culuts Lake end and at the other along the Chilliwack River to Tamihi Creek. Allow about 2.5 hrs for the ride. We highly recommend doing the ride heading up the Valley.
Chilliwack Fraser River Dikes t71
This ride takes you through Chilliwack on what will eventually become a complete greenway. Once on the Fraser River Dike System it is a great ride all the way to the Agassiz Bridge. On the way you may wish to visit Minter Gardens and Island 22 Regional Park. Without the visits this ride should take about 2.5 hours.
Cemetery on the Discovery Trail to Lickman Rd t70
The Discovery Trail is an extraordinary paved trail that has significant slopes and great views. It eventually connects with the Sumas River Trail up to the Vedder River where the trail crosses over to Chilliwack on the Keith Wilson Bridge and from there follows the Vedder Rotary Trail to a TCT Pavilion/Kiok. This is a varied and fun ride that shoiuld be done heading eastward. Allow for 3 to 4 hours.
Douglas Taylor Park to Wilband Park t69
This TCT routing starts at Douglas Taylor Park at the start of the Masquit Regional Trail that soon follows the Fraser River up to Sumas Mountain. There are significant sections along this trail that is more fun off the dike than on it. From here to Clayburn and Wilband Park is on enjoyable country roads. Allow for a good 3 hours.
Surrey Greenway TCT Alternate t68
There are hilly section at both ends of this alternate route for the Trans Canada Trail. It is however mostly Greenway that can be cycled right across Surrey. Green Timbers and Tynehead Park are the highligths of this trip. It is recommended to start at the Delta end and allow about 3 hours.

98% of this section of the Trans Canada Trail is enjoyed on greenway along the Coquitlam River, Hyde Creek, the Pitt River, and Fraser River. Allow 4 hours of quite easy riding.
