CRD pledges to finish off Trans-Canada Trail

The goal is to have the trail finished both in the CRD and across Canada in time for the country’s 150th birthday in 2017.

Almost 25 years since it was first created, the Capital Regional District is pledging to finish the Trans-Canada Trail.

The trail project was launched in 1992 as a way to connect the country for hikers, bikers or paddlers.

The trail will cut across Sooke linking with the Vancouver Island Spine Trail and the Cowichan Valley Regional District trail system.

The new trail will begin at the Humpback Reservoir in the Sooke Hills Wilderness Regional Park Reserve and end at the CRD-CVRD boundary.

CRD planner Carolyn Stewart said there is the potential for the trail to link with other regional trails in the future.

The goal is to have the trail finished both in the CRD and across Canada in time for the country’s 150th birthday in 2017.
