walkers already enjoying new trail near Courtenay

As a priority of the rural Comox Valley parks and greenways strategic plan, this significant connector now allows for loops and longer outings, and is proving popular with equestrians and walkers.

Improvements along this old logging road have created a 640 metre surfaced trail connecting the One Spot Trail with the Wildwood Interpretive Forest.cheapnflsalejerseys The new trail is at the end of Brazier Road just north of Courtenay in the Dove Creek area.

“We want to extend our appreciation to the donors who granted the CVRD a 12 metre statutory right of way along the north boundary of their property for public trail use,” said Edwin Grieve, Comox Valley regional district board chair and Area C director. “This couldn’t have happened without their support.”

Jim Gillis, director for Lazo North (Area B), and Bruce Jolliffe, director for Baynes Sound Denman/Hornby Islands (Area A) were also on hand for the ceremony.

As the land is located in the Agricultural Land Reserve, another important step was receiving endorsement from the Agricultural Community Advisory Panel to help gain approval from the Provincial Land Commission.
