This 3.5 km section will consist of a 2.2 metre-wide gravel trail built within the East Road dedication. A permit has been obtained from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure for the construction and maintenance of the trail within the road allowance. The trail was designed to minimize tree removal and ecological impacts, however due to limited space within the road allowance, a total of 12 trees will need to be removed for this project. The CVRD is committed to preserving natural landscapes, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by replanting trees and shrubbery annually, and providing safe active transportation methods throughout communities.

This trail construction project was made possible because of funding from a B.C. Active Transportation Infrastructure grant and Community Works funding. The CVRD anticipates this project to be tendered as a public bid process in spring of 2023.
