Trail Strategies Survey for BC

In April 2013 the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations confirmed the Trails Strategy for BC as a key policy direction and supported its ongoing implementation, that will lead to the development of a successful and sustainable world-class trail system that serves all types of users. The strategy was a collaborative effort from the outset and included stakeholder groups, local governments, First Nations and several agencies such as BC Parks, Tourism BC, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, and many others who played an important role in its development. Progress has been made in implementing the strategy and, as it continues, the Ministry seeks to develop innovative partnerships and find new ways to maximize available resources.  To download a PDF copy of this report, click here.

Whether the horses you see on or near the road are tied up, being ridden, driven in harness, lead or loading in and out of trailers, the Back Country Horsemen Society of BC (BCHBC) urges all motorists to please, slow down, share the road and think safety first. “Drivers, motorcycle riders, cyclists and joggers should all be aware that horses and riders have a legal right to be on the road,” explains BCHBC…
