Cloudberry Trail preview hike on for Sunday in Prince Rupert

The parking lot for the Tall Trees Trail on Highway 16
is the staging area for Sunday's walk along a portion of the 
proposed Cloudberry trail project

The members of Kaien Trails are organizing a Sunday morning stroll through the woods off of the Tall Trees Trails parking lot, with the local Trails Society looking to showcase the proposed route of the Cloudberry Trail with an event set for 10:30.

The Trail is the next much anticipated bit of work for the local group of trail builders and maintainers.

The project one which in its early stages will eventually link up the Trail Trees Trail with the Prince Rupert Civic Centre, following a path to be carved out of the forest that lines Highway 16.

Tomorrow those with an interest in the plans, can join the Kaien Trails crew for a walkabout, the invitation issue through their social media stream on Friday.

The Tall Trees Trail for those not familiar with the popular trail, is on the right side of the highway heading out of Prince Rupert. You can find the parking lot  just down the highway from the entrance to Butte Rapids and the new Welcome to Prince Rupert sign.

The work on phase one of what will become the Cloudberry Trail is set for later this year, with a trail to be constructed from the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre to where Prince George Street meets Highway 1.
