Mountain bikers, hikers, walkers, quadders, dirt bikers, snowmobilers.. ALL users of the Trans Canada Trail and all other trails in our area…. now is the time to find out what/where/when/how you can and will be able to use the trails now and in the future.
The Trans Canada Trail (the old railbed) is owned by the Provincial Government. The stewardship of the Trail has been granted to the RDOS. The RDOS works with groups like the Vermillion Trails Society to help maintain it. The Regional District representative, Justin Shuttleworth, will be in the Tulameen Community Hall on Friday night to talk about the Trans Canada Trail. Kelley Cook, the Trails Management Person will be there to provide information and answer any questions about heritage trails and the Historic Hudson Bay Trail that will be coming to Tulameen.
Bob Coyne, our Area H Representative, will be there to talk about the China Ridge recreation area just outside of Princeton. Ken Reeve from The Vermillion Trails Society will be there. All of the folks at this event are interested to hear what the trail users are looking for. The Tulameen Community Club knows that this is an important issue to many folks who enjoy the recreation in our area, so have made the Community Hall available to these folks to share their information with you ……
