- Following the main trail leaving from the edge of the gravel parking lot.
- Stay right at the first junction and continue following signs to Mission Bridge.
- You will head downhill, then go up and down some small hills.
- Cross the train tracks (Use Caution!).
- Go underneath the train tracks through a short tunnel.
- Next, veer right at the pump house and go up and over the dike trail continuing straight to follow the main trail towards Mission Bridge.
- A couple minutes later you’ll arrive at the turnaround point at the river’s edge. You’ll be in a gravel parking lot with a yellow metal gate at the 3.5km mark.
- Turn around and head back to your car the way you came.
- It’s going to feel like it’s all uphill on the way back because, well, it pretty much is. Oh boy, hills 🙂
