Map: Capilano River
Come out to one of our most beautiful mapsevening. We'll meet near the fish hatchery in Capilano River Park. The first challenge is getting there, since they are paving Capilano Road near the park entrance and you can only get the entrance by driving down the hill. There's a detour towards Edgemont to get onto the road above that.We're experimenting with 'Tan' contour lines on this map printing to make the gravel trails stand out more. With so many contours mapped at 2.5 m the canyon has many lines that can obscure other details. This printing makes it look kind of flat though it's certainly not.

Always use good judgement and common sense. Carry a whistle at all times. Watch for vehicles and bikes when crossing roads. Be respectful of other pedestrians, cyclists, dog-walkers, roller-bladers, and small children.
Parking near the hatchery is free unless you're a driver a bus with lots of people.
