The Trans Canada Trail has had a presence in Kimberley for many years, travelling through the Nature Park and also utilizing the Lions Way Trail between Kimberley and Marysville.
However, the Trans Canada Trail committee has now completed a new routing plan for Kimberley which officially connects the trail into one continuous route and adds a unique loop feature, where the TCT will run two parallel routes on the Lions Way and also the Rails to Trails between Kimberley and Marysville.
This will create a 12.3 kilometre loop with each half offering a very different experience.
Coun. Don McCormick says the real advantage of this is in marketing.
“It has exciting possibilities and no negatives,” he said.
