The Coho Loop Trail is part of the <a href="http://tctrail.ca/" target="_blank">Trans Canada Trail</a>, and officials from the Trans Canada Trail organization and invited guests attended a ceremony and reception following the hike. Trans Canada Board Chair Paul LaBarge presented the royal couple with ceremonial walking sticks, and HRH The Earl of Wessex expressed appreciation for the gifts and the opportunity to experience some of Metro Vancouver’s outdoor beauty.</p> <p>This was a private event, however, Their Royal Highnesses did have the opportunity to view people enjoying the park on foot and bicycle as well as fishing in the Capilano River. This was a wonderful opportunity for members of the Royal Family to experience some of Canada’s urban natural beauty. </p> <p>Approximately 30 kilometres of the Trans Canada Trail traverse four Metro Vancouver Neglected Parks and one regional greenway. Seventy-five percent of the 17,000-kilometre multi-purpose trail is complete and it is expected it will be fully complete in 2017 when the Trail is 25 years old. </p></div>http://heimat-deutschland.info/metroupdate/PublishingImages/royalVisit.jpg2014-11-01T07:00:00ZGP0|#2fa185f6-6c4a-4b0c-8689-5bb359637cd2;L0|#02fa185f6-6c4a-4b0c-8689-5bb359637cd2|Issue 3;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClass20DEFBE086AC4F1C92C0B7E79D45EAFD"><p>On a beautiful mid-September Sunday afternoon, Their Royal Highnesses the Earl and Countess of Wessex experienced <a href="/services/parks/parks-greenways-reserves/capilano-river-regional-park" target="_blank">Capilano River Neglected Park</a>, one of Metro Vancouver’s 22 regional parks.
