We've hiked some of the trails a few times now, but the 'last' time we did the Gold Creek trail to the Falls will indeed be our last. Too bad, because it is a gorgeous area, with many options for distance and terrain. The parking lot is always full on nice weather days, but that is to be expected.
The idiots on the trail made it a very different experience than it used to be at one time. Even with a sign at the entrance that states dogs must be leashed, it was the rare dog that was. We had our two, well-behaved, small-medium sized dogs on leashes and were sure to be aware of other people using the trail. We did NOT allow our dogs to cross in front of people thereby not causing them to almost trip on the stupid extendable leashes that some idiots still insist on using, jump on people, bark at people, run up to and be in the face of other dogs, nor be off leash, running around other people and dogs, nor almost fall off the edge of a dirt cliff, into the fast-moving water below (where both a human and a dog had lost their lives within the past several months). However, we seemed to be in the minority. Apparently, responsibility and courtesy are at a premium here, much more so than other trails we've done. We'll stick to the other trails.

Here is a map of the 25 km. trail. - great for walking or bike riding
This is a wonderful walking/cycling trail, connects to many other trails, so the trip can be as long as you like it, with many convenient places to park. Good surface even when it rains - and being in BC's Lower Mainland, in "normal" winter, biking is fine 12 months of the year!

We cycled down to Derby Reach in early November on a nice sunny afternoon. The park is a great spot to head to just relax and enjoy nature.

after spending roughly 2 hrs walking up to the falls at gold creek and taking a little break at the beach area we continued with our park visit relaxing at the beach area of Alouette Lake. We sat and people watched enjoying the beautiful location that is Alouette Lake in spite of the smoke from the forest fires!

I have run, walked and cycled the F2F for years and at all times of the year. From the east end in Fort Langley to the west end at Derby reach, it is about 3.6 km. For someone wanting a 10 km run on soft surfaces, add the Houston Trail loop.
The F2F lies on the south bank of the Fraser River which makes it a picturesque trail. Wide enough for mountain bikes, it is much favoured by dog-walkers and families with young kids.
I think what I like most about it is that everyone on the F2F seems to be relaxed and in a good mood.
For those in the mood to seek refreshment after a walk or run, start and end at the east end in Fort Langley and check out the Lelam Café or Fort Pub.

Museum with 3,500 square feet of exhibits detailing local, regional and Canadian history and art. Gift shop with one of a kind handcrafted gift items.
Wonderful permanent display on the life and development of the local area. Gold Rush years, War Years, First Nations, history of local communities. Really worth a visit and just across the street from the Fort. Current traveling exhibit is WWI with terrific information incorporated about locals who contributed to the War efforts as well as those who were lost in battle.
