Trail Audit Survey

Take a hike! We need your help to audit trail conditions.

When provincial parks open this summer, we aim to perform trail audits on many popular trails at BC provincial parks and Recreation Sites and Trails BC. Visit a trail at any BC provincial park or Recreation Sites and Trails BC and then submit this form to help us audit trail conditions.

Here’s what we are looking to find through these trail audits:
  • • Document the state of each trail including existing trail infrastructure, such as bridges and boardwalks. Include washed-out or blocked drainage pipes and locations that need drainage or boardwalks.
  • • Detail places where trail braiding and erosion is occurring. For example, many trails near Vancouver have eroded down to tree roots, making hiking hazardous.
  • • Take photos to support and showcase trail conditions.

Based on these trail audits, a detailed report will be created and presented to BC Parks and elected officials. These audits and the consolidated report will assist FMCBC in advocating for increased funding for BC Parks.

  • State the name of the provincial park or recreation site where the trail is located.
  • > Document the state of each trail including existing trail infrastructure, such as bridges and boardwalks. > Provide the location of any issues found (e.g. as you cross the trail at Fitzsimmons Creek). > Include washed-out or malfunctioning drainage pipes or areas that need to add drainage. > Detail places where trail braiding and erosion is occurring.
