NorthStar Rails to Trails goes national
Numerous people including Mayor Wayne Stetski and Al Skucas have been championing the NorthStar Rails to Trails section between Cranbrook and Kimberley.
These local efforts are paying off, as The Weather Network now has our section of the trail showcased on its website, bringing attention to the trail and our communities.
This is the photo caption used on the site:
“On the NorthStar Rails to Trails section of the Trans Canada Trail in southeastern British Columbia—located between Cranbrook and Kimberley—cyclists, walkers, skateboarders and rollerbladers can enjoy breathtaking scenery year-round. Rich greenery covers the landscape at the halfway mark on this 26-kilometre section of paved trail. With the stunning Purcell Mountain range as a backdrop, the Trail offers a view of rock formations dating back almost 1.5 billion years. The Trans Canada Trail in British Columbia currently spans over 2,000 kilometres through dozens of distinct communities, from Victoria to Elk Pass at the Alberta border. Currently, 675 kilometres need to be connected by 2017 in order for B.C.’s section of the Trans Canada Trail to be complete.”
