Over the past months, the new owners of the rail trail corridor (Kelowna, Lake Country, the North Okanagan Regional District, and the Okanagan Indian Band) have cooperated to lay the preliminary framework for building a hard-packed trail from Coldstream to Kelowna. It is now up to all of us to raise the $7.86 million that the trail is expected to cost.

This is our trail and the opportunity of a lifetime!

This wonderful trail will be an almost 50 km continuous corridor that will provide a link to all communities along its amazing route featuring many of the valley’s most scenic spots. Everyone’s help is needed take on the job of funding and fundraising to build this trail and create a lasting legacy that will be a treasured asset of our beautiful valley. A meter of construction of trail will cost $160, and contributions of any amount are greatly appreciated!
