The South Fraser Witness Trail was begun in 2009 by volunteers from Surrey Environmental Partners and the Wilderness Committee. It follows the route of the proposed South Fraser Perimeter Road (SFPR) through a beautiful forest along the edge of Fraser Heights. This escarpment forest is listed as one of Surrey's five major natural area hubs in a study recently commissioned by the city. It is home to deer, beavers, herons, owls, salmon, and endangered species such as the red legged frog and Pacific water shrew. No SFPR work has begun here.

Witness Trails are a time tested way of protecting natural areas from irresponsible development. Come on the hike to see the wildlife and old growth spruce trees. Find out what is at stake if the South Fraser Freeway gets built, and what we can do to stop it! The trail includes rugged sections. Bring drinking water, a snack, and water resistant footwear. The hike will proceed rain or shine and will only be canceled in case of high winds or dangerous conditions.
