This event will include a brief ribbon cutting ceremony and photos at 12 PM. Following the ceremony, hikers will be invited to carve their name or initials into a commemorative signpost that will remain on display on the trail. The Goldilocks Construction team of Megan Kelly, Marie-Helene Jodoin, Vickie Vanderpyl and Brenda Wright will conduct interpretive hikes explaining the trail building process and highlighting trail and terrain features. Hikers can make their way down to Island Lake Lodge after the interpretive hike, estimated departure at 3:00 PM. The Bear Lodge will be open on your return to the Lodge with some special Goldilocks Grand Opening Specials.
All hikers joining the event will need to provide their own food and beverage and dress appropriately for hiking in alpine terrain and changing weather conditions.
Should inclement weather cause a postponement of the event Island Lake will post a notification on the Facebook site at 8am on August 14, 2018. Hikers can also call the Guest Services desk at 778-519-8168 to get an update on the event.
Please note logging has commenced on New Roots. Please avoid this area until further notice. Thank you for your cooperation. The pink on the map is where logging is happening.
Effective May 23rd Hyper Extension, Roots Extension & Resurrection will be closed for approximately 4-6 weeks due to logging. Canwel will be using River Rd. to haul so please avoid River Rd. and use Montane to access the rest of the trail network. We have over 300 km of fantastic trails to still enjoy! Any updates will be provided as we have further information. Please see the attached map. The pink is where the new logging will begin.
Here are a few great reminders as we get into the hiking and biking season.
