Vancouver Island Spine Trail
|This article is an orphan, as no other articles link to it. (October 2010)|
Vancouver Island "Spine" is developing from a concept whereby a 700 kilometer hiking trail will be created from the southern tip of Vancouver Island running from Victoria up to the top of the island at Cape Scott Provincial Park. The trail will be accessible to hikers five months of the year, with some sections available much longer. Various sections will be available for non-motorized multi-purpose, where permitted.
The hiking trail project is being developed by the Vancouver Island Spine Trail Association (VISTA) a non-profit society with charity status under the Canadian Revenue Agency #(CRA)852516251RR0001. Current board of directors are listed at the official website. VISTA is a part of 'Hike BC', the British Columbia wing of the National Hiking Trail (NHT). Other NHT significant trails include The Alexander MacKenzie Heritage Trail, (also known as Nuxalk-Carrier Route or Blackwater Trail) a 450 km forested trail located in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region of British Columbia.
