Only one trail

More should be done to protect this region's segment of the Trans Canada Trail

The day is coming when Canada’s 18,000-kilometre trail will be completed from sea to sea.

The Okanagan, with its beautiful lakes, mountains, orchards and wineries, will be the No. 1 destination for cyclists from all over the world. We should all become acquainted with our trail and start burning calories, not carbon.

We would like to see the trail designated as a park, with park bylaws restricting motor vehicles. In the meantime, it would be great if the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen would do what they can to stop the careless destruction of an irreplaceable treasure that is our trail by motor vehicles. Happy trails.
