West Dyke Trail Map
Canada Vancouver Richmond

Richmond's flat topography and intricate network of over 40 km (25 mi) of developed trails make it a cycling mecca for visitors and locals alike.

Steveston Trail leads cyclists on a winding journey through the historic fishing village of Steveston. South Dyke Trail takes riders on a scenic tour past farms and historic sites. West Dyke Trail overlooks tidal flats, offering cyclists front-row views of mountains and migratory birds. Both South Dyke and West Dyke Trails connect with the Steveston Trail.

The Sea Island Cycling Route follows country roads to beaches and parks, with excellent views of the area around Vancouver International Airport.

Drop by the Richmond Visitor Centre, off Highway 99 just north of the Massey Tunnel, for more information and for detailed cycling route maps.

Richmond is located next to Vancouver, a 30-minute drive south from downtown Vancouver via Highway 99.

West Dyke Trail

列治文西堤漫步小道 (West Dyke Trail) 是加拿大溫哥華不列顛哥倫比亞省列治文 Richmond 一條觀日落賞晚霞的最佳 Trail,trail從Terra Nova 至Garry Point Park,大約有5.5公里。漫步在這條trail上可以近觀Sturgeon Banks marshes,遠眺Howe Sound mountains及Gulf Islands,這裡尤其是觀賞落日餘暉的最佳地點,沿著這條trail在夕陽下散步或慢跑都是非常美妙的享受。這條trail也曾讓幾位加西愛色人士拍出了晚霞映日、夕陽無限好的經典片片。

加拿大溫哥華不列顛哥倫比亞省列治文著名的觀光點。區內有多個觀光活動名勝,包括對卑斯省漁業有極大影響的佐治亞海灣製魚場 (Gulf of Georgia Cannery) ,透過歷史遺蹟,舊日製魚機器與生產,以及華人對漁業的貢獻,重溫西岸製魚的發展歷程。可順著漁場旁邊著名的史提夫士頓休閒小徑 (Steveston Trails) 到西堤 (West Dyke) 漫步觀潮,到加里角公園 (Garry Point Park) 野餐,更可參觀史提夫士頓博物館 (Steveston Museum) 了解該區往昔商業狀況,或親臨比坦妮亞船塢 (Britania Heritage Shipyard) 參觀菲沙河畔最古老建築物及造船過程,還有到倫敦農莊 (London Farm) 探訪百年前鄉村生活。

鱘魚淺灘 (Sturgeon Banks)
位於加拿大溫哥華不列顛哥倫比亞省列治文西部海岸,菲沙河中央支流河口濕地。兩百年前,喬治溫哥華船長為英國來北美洲西海岸測圖。當 他在搜尋菲沙河口時,他與他的船員,從原住民手中購得幾只重達兩百磅的白鱘魚。因此而命名為鱘魚淺灘(Sturgeon Banks),但當時他並不知道這就是菲沙河口。每年冬天,有遠來自4850公里西伯利亞的雪雁(Snow Geese)以及來此度冬覓食,因為這裡有雪雁喜愛吃的莎草。除了數以千計的雪雁外,還有各種野鴨與猛禽來此度冬覓食。

由於列治文位於菲沙河口三角洲地帶,海岸一帶大多為半鹹水生態(brackish) 。每天漲潮時,海水常可上達新 西敏市,最遠可達匹特河岸(Pitt River)。半鹼水濕地是世界上生物產量最豐富的地區,每年每公頃產量可達平均五公噸,這是鹼水濕地產量的三倍。通常在生長末期,這些植物大多凋零死亡,而創造出大量的有機腐植物 ,隨著潮水而衝出附近水域。這些有機腐植物提供許多浮遊生物營養食物的來源,維繫著整個河口潮間河道與濕地的食物鏈。
