HSCT 2014 Update

Posted on Posted in Howe Sound Crest Trail

The Howe Sound Crest Trail project has progressed to the point where a lot of difficult rock work is being done as it approaches St Marks. We hope to get more of this awkward section completed in 2014, possibly with some high-elevation work out towards Magnesia Meadows cleared from a camp this summer, dependent on BC Parks staffing and budget. As noted in our other reports, we originally raised a total of $450,000 from VANOC and NTC with assistance of Friends of Cypress and ORC, and Government is now regularly putting in funding, however there is a short season at this elevation, and BC Parks has suggested that possibly we need bigger machinery and an earlier start by snow clearing to the work site.
