Inukshuk Trail washouts repaired

Volunteers and businesses work together to repair washouts on public walking trails.

Bruce Walker bridges a ditch carved out by runoff.

Inukshuk Trail, which transverses the base of the hills above the Mesa Vista subdivision, is a picturesque and well-used trail by locals. Whether using it for their regular morning walk or for part of a longer hike, the trail offers beautiful scenery, rolling inclines and over 320 inukshuks. Ranging from small piles to large towering ones, the inukshuks all have a personality of their own depending on who built them.

Three areas on the trail were a little difficult to walk as they passed through small gulley washes. Thank you to a generous donation of treated wood from Andy, Steve and Willow at Ashcroft Irly Bird, small foot bridges were made and installed making the trail more user-friendly.

If you haven’t experienced some of our local trails you should put it on your “to do” list, as there are some truly lovely hikes around our Village. The clean air and excellent scenery are well worth it.
