The section of coastline extends from Semiahmoo Bay in the south to Point Atkinson in the north. Map shows the location of mule trails and wagon roads, and includes a trail in progress from New Westminster to Burrard Inlet (North Road), trails from Whatcom to Hope and Semiahmoo to Derby, the Hudsons Bay Brigade Trail, Douglas Road, a trail proposed by Colonel Moody from New Westminster to Fort Hope, and the Dewdney Trail.

[Housler] for a map showing the Dewdney Trail.
