About This Park

UNBC Connector Trails are part of the Centennial Trail Loop around Prince George. The trails connect the university with Cranbook Hill Greenway and Forests for the World trails. It is recommended on the city of Prince George website to access the trails on the west end of Ferry Avenue, the west end of Massey Drive, or the corner of 18th Avenue and Foothills Boulevard for a shorter and relatively flat terrain. For a more challenging hike, the dirt trail heading up Ginter’s Meadow to University Way is another option. This is the least accessible portion of the trail due to the steep hills and narrow trail.

Trails

The trail from Ospika along Tyner Blvd to UNBC is 3 meters wide, paved and 80% flat to moderate with some steep parts near Ospika and again near UNBC. The trail from 18th and Foothills is flat, paved and 3 meters wide for a kilometer until the turnoff bridge just past Webber Crescent. At that point the surface is crush or packed dirt, 1 to 2 meters wide and often steep at 8 to 15 degrees slope.There are some resting areas with low benches (flat logs). Be prepared for a steady climb for about a kilometer and a half. If you choose to go down 15th back to the Foothills and 18th parking lot, it is a steady 5 degree slope. There is a concrete sidewalk on both sides in moderate to good condition. Download Full Accessibility Audit
