About this project

Burnaby Mountain is a designated conservation area that protects our forests, wildlife, plant life and water systems. The 578-hectare conservation area is a mountain ecosystem of plants and animals alike. We recognize that the Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area (BMCA) is an environmentally sensitive area of regional importance, and the recreation service provision is continually evolving.

In 2019, the Environmental Conditions Assessment identified the need for a trail management plan for Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area. The City of Burnaby is developing a trail management plan for Burnaby Mountain to balance conservation and recreation in this well-loved natural park and we want to hear from you! Please take the survey by June 2, 2024.

This survey is administered by the City of Burnaby. Personal information collected and used for the purpose of receiving information regarding the Burnaby Mountain Trail Management Plan. It will be managed in accordance with s. 26 I of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. All personal information collected through this survey will remain confidential and de-identified when shared with the public. For questions regarding the collection of Personal Information and receipt of electronic messages please contact: Corporate Communications and Marketing at communications@burnaby.ca.

The trail management plan will assess the current state and inventory of trails and guide future investment for management and improvements. The goal is to review and enhance trail management services while maintaining conservation standards and protecting the habitats and ecosystems in the area.

Burnaby Mountain is a site of significance for Burnaby’s Host Nations and is also popular with those who enjoy its natural beauty through bird watching, hiking and mountain biking on the 30km of recreational trail network.

What's happening now

We have completed the literature review, site analysis and photo documentation in fall 2023. City Council received a project update in April 2024, and public engagement is currently underway.
