The revitalization of the waterfront Rushbrook Trail was completed in June 2018, and was a partnership between Kaien Trails, the Port of Prince Rupert, the Rotary Club of Prince Rupert, the City of Prince Rupert, CN, and Pinnacle Renewable Energy Group.
Route: 1.7 km long. Pathway is gravel with three open deck bridges. Some steep sections.
Park either at the Rushbrook Floats (pay parking required) or at the Seal Cove Slough (free parking). Follow the signage. Garbage cans and dog waste bags can be found at either end of the route.
As per the Master Trail Plan, the Rushbrook trail will be updated to be a multi-use trail that will accommodate cyclists and wheelchairs.
Kaien Trails is currently very pleased to be moving forward with the permitting and design portion for Phase 1 of the Cloudberry Trail (June 2023).
The Cloudberry Trail build has been purposely broken up in sections, much as large industrial projects like the container port are staggered in phases. Funding for Phase 1 came from a grant from the federal government through PacifiCan ($500K) and the provincial government through Destination Development ($500k). Axis Mountain Technical and Lambert Consulting were awarded the RFP for Phase 1; many thanks to the City of Prince Rupert for working closely with Kaien Trails to get this first section permitted and built!
