There are an abundance of trails, parks and paths to discover in Surrey, all you need is your runners, some water, and a love for the great outdoors. With over 600 parks, trails, and green spaces in Surrey, it’s no wonder it’s easy to enjoy the great outdoors right outside your own backyard.
1,001 steps is located in South Surrey, at the most western point of 15A ave. Breeze through the descending steps to exclusive access to the beach. The steps lead to a cobble beach, then cross the train tracks (carefully) and you’ve reached beachfront. 1,001 steps is a great way to enjoy the beach with more privacy than Crescent beach. Get your sweat on as you climb back up the wooden steps from the bottom, camouflaged in the trees and greenery that shade you from the sun. Be sure to bring some water, as even though there aren’t really 1,001 steps, it’ll sure feel like there are once you reach the top!
