A renowned trail network
Trails can be locally cherished, popular in a particular area or sought out by travelers; but when locals or visitors think about some of the best trail experiences, the Bridge River Valley should come to mind.
Well-organized network of sustainable trails
A well-organized network of sustainable trails balances environmental, social and economic values and ensures our trails are viable over the long term for future generations to enjoy.
Opportunities for all
Trails in the Bridge River Valley are enjoyed by a diverse range of users with a diverse set of recreation values. The Bridge River Valley trail network must provide opportunities for all user groups while fostering respect between the users and for the environment.
