Trigon Terminals Commits $75k

Kaien Trails was recently thrilled to announce that Trigon Terminals has donated $75,000 to support the construction of the first phase of the new Cloudberry Trail.

“Easy access to nature is one of the best features of North Coast life and soon it will be even better”, says Trigon CEO Rob Booker. “We commend Kaien Trails and the community of volunteers for advancing this project, and for their commitment to providing more active, and also more accessible ways of getting around on Kaien Island.”

Cloudberry Community Walk

On Sunday, June 4th, close to forty community members of all ages met at the Tall Trees parking lot to explore the proposed route of the Cloudberry Trail. Led by Sean and Steve, these intrepid trail enthusiasts walked the first kilometer or so west towards Rupert, trekking through skunk cabbage, hopping over creeks, and ending up in the beautiful muskeg meadow for which the trail is named. A smaller group continued on with Steve to the hydro line lookout back down to town, while the rest of us went back to the trailhead for hotdogs prepared by Dan.

This event was made possible by a grant from the Outdoor Recreation Council of BC!
