Some great publicity in The Packet this week
Excerpt from an article this week in The Packet
“The trail has been expanded from 2.7 km to 5.3 km to go right around the peninsula of Champney’s West.
With the upgrades, the trail is now part of the provincial trail system along with famous local trails like the Skerwink in Port Rexton and Trinity’s Gun Hill.
“So we’re all at the same standard now. We’ve got our kiosk and we’ve got our trail marked completely on it. We’re at the same as those trails in the provincial system,” Hiscock told The Packet.
A team led by John Vivian put a lot of work into building the kiosk, developing the parking lot at the mouth of the trail and marking the trail.
There is still some work to done in the way of getting material to mark the map showing the entirety of the trail, Hiscock says.”
