“We have always wanted an in-depth hiking and biking guide here at the Visitor Centre; it’s one of the top 5 requests we have during the busy summer season.” Joey Byatt, Manager of Tourism Services at the Peachland Visitor Centre said.

The event that takes place on Trail Awareness day, May 26 at 9 a.m. and anyone is welcome to join the initiative. Participants will then break off into groups and map one of three hikes; the Fur Brigade trail, Trepanier Creek trail and Gladstone trail.
