Ears Provincial Park has a network of trails earmarked for horseback
riding. As you head north from either of the two park signs that
appear on Hwy 7 in Maple Ridge, horses and riders will begin to
appear in the vicinity of Maple Ridge Municipal Park. The
riding trails in Golden Ears Provincial Park are some of the most
extensive in the Lower Mainland.
riding paths in Campbell Valley Regional
Park are located east of 200th Street in Langley. Before this
was parkland, Langley riders maintained the bridle trails that run
east towards Aldergrove. Since September 1979, when the GVRD took
control of the 2-square-mile (535-hectare) valley, these trails
have come into greater public use.
Today, Campbell Valley Regional Park is one of the easiest places
for visitors to satisfy a desire to ride a horse. The Shaggy
Mane Trail, which rings the park, runs 6.8 miles (11 km), an
easy two-hour ride. Stables are located directly across from the
park equestrian centre at Campbell Downs, providing horses and guided
tours of the trail on a one or two-hour basis.
To reach Campbell
Valley Regional Park, drive south from Hwy 1 on 200th Street to
either the 16th or Eighth Avenue entrance. Or from Hwy 99, take
Eighth Avenue east and travel 4.7 miles (7.5 km) to the South Valley
