Join us on Saturday, June 3 at the Elk Pass Trail Head in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park between 9am and 4pm in celebration of BC Trails Day!
While this event is being held in Alberta, Peter Lougheed Provincial Park is an important access point to the GDT and trails and parks in BC. Volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and share our experiences on the trail. For those thinking about hiking the GDT (in whole or in part) and wanting to learn more, or supporters who want to stop in to say hi, all are welcome. We’ll also have details on nearby portions of the trail that pass through Elk Lakes and Height of the Rockies Provincial Parks.
We love the trails that make up the GDT and during the last few years more than ever we’ve realized how lucky our community is to have such amazing trail networks available to us. It’s thanks to the volunteers and trail caretakers that we all get to enjoy the beautiful wild spaces in our backyard.
Communities, groups, and outdoor enthusiasts all over BC (and occasionally in Alberta too!) are organizing events to celebrate beautiful trails and show their appreciation for all the work done by volunteers and local trail caretakers in partnership with the Outdoor Recreation Council of BC. If you’re not near Peter Lougheed check out some of the other great events going on.
