Summer trail crew hard at work in Hope

Hikers encouraged to get out and enjoy trails

Hope Mountain Centre’s summer trail crew started work last week, clearing and flagging the Wells Peak Trail and the Hope Mountain Summit Trail.

Under the leadership of Justin Brown, crew members Rebecca Arrowsmith and Craig Smith removed undergrowth and fallen logs on both trails, greatly improving the experience for hikers. In addition, they removed overgrown alders from the last 500 metres of Forest Service Road, saving the paint job on vehicles.

Hope residents are encouraged to get up there and enjoy the view this summer (four-wheel drive is needed for the eight kilometre road access to both trailheads). Drop by the Hope Visitor Centre to pick up a Trails of Hope brochure, with more information on trail distance, elevation gain, and vehicle access.

The crew will be working all summer on several popular trails in the area close to Hope and Yale, thanks to funding provided by Advantage Hope and the Rural Dividend Fund.
