UNBC Hill... Run from the Aquatic Centre parking lot to the top of the UNBC Hill if you're looking to start your day off right... Bring a skipping rope to complement the workout once you reach the top. Way better than coffee in the morning to set the day's pace.

Gunn Park then south along the cutbanks for a distance of 3km to the Simon Fraser Bridge.
