We create, improve and maintain nine recreational trails in Nakusp, BC and the surrounding area. We also encourage more use of our trails by our community, our neighbours and visitors to our area.

Attention hikers:

If you plan to visit Cedar Grove Trail, please be advised that the Kuskanax Forest Service Road passes quite close to the caribou maternity pen, and will therefore be closed at critical times, like calving season (end of May, early June).  There is signage in place at the gate explaining the protocol.  The gate will only be locked when the road is closed.  For information before you go, please visit the Arrow Lakes Caribou Society website.  We ask that you please follow all protocols to give the local caribou herd the best possible chance at recovery.
