Summary:
Aldergrove Park is a small park but can be fun if you just ignore the anti-biking rules. For example, cyclist are required to ride in only one direction (which is usually only UP the hills). Instead, if you go the opposite way and haul ass down the hills it's great fun. There's even an added challenge when you have to try and avoid hitting horse people. Good times indeed.

Pretty Slim pickings in Aldergrove. No recommendations.

Summary:
This is a flat, boring trail. I rode it the first day I bought a bike and found myself bored out of my skull. It's only good for small children who are still learning how to ride on terrain other then pavement. Otherwise, a waste of time.

Summary:
GVRD Parks has set the rules for multi-users. If machines bucked & kicked every time a rude mule raced by, I would have to dismount, smile & give a cordial greeting. Please appreciate the needs of other users & have a good time. Aldergrove Park is a good family ride for all of us.

Recommended Route:
Follow the signs, stay on the designated trails.

Summary:
I am an experienced rider, my daughters, 9 & 11 are not. The path was certainly easy for me. It was well suited for my daughters who are beginners and lack confidence. The one thing that hung like a black clowd over our experience was the park's "Code of Conduct" required of cyclists but no other user groups. Among the seven or so requirements are; when meeting a horse on a path cyclists are required to dismount and stand on the low side of the path (in the mud and water) until the horse goes by; and the requirement to say "hello" to all other users. I think this kind of legislation kills the sincerity which would have been expressed so willingly otherwise and serves only to devide our community's user groups. My kids felt victimized by the Parks Board oppression. It took us 2 hours to go about 6 kilometers, breaks included. I may go back with the my eldest daughter as a confidence builder for her until I find a friendlier place in the valley with similar terrain.

Recommended Route:
My kids & I rode this area yesterday. Path intersections are poorly marked. Enter the park, drive to the bottom of the hill, turn left and park near the end of the lot. Take the path by the sign, take the first left and the first left again (around or under the gate). The "Rock'n Horse" path is right there. We went left.
