I moved here from Quebec 18 months ago and have been enjoying exploring the trails in the area. When I read about the Rail Trail project I felt inspired to be a part of such an undertaking. I’m looking forward to being able to use the trail someday. I also appreciate the mention of the collaboration with the Secwépemc Nation.

“It’s going to be an amazingly beautiful trail along Mara Lake and the Shuswap River – a wonderful amenity for locals and visitors alike which will attract thousands from near and far. The partnership with Splatsin is a real benefit too, contributing to the reconciliation process. Askew’s is pleased to support this truly wonderful project.”

In an area with so much posted private land, the rail trail will make an invaluable contribution by increasing public access to natural spaces at low elevation.
