The Trails to the Boundary Society (TTTBS) will be assisting the province in maintaining the Kettle Valley Rail Trail and the Columbia and Western Rail Trail which is part of the Trans-Canada Trail from Eholt to McCulloch Lake, a distance of about 155 km.  The total length of the southern BC Trans-Canada Trail is 1,750 km.


Ciel Sander, The trail coordinator for the society, said, “The Society’s mission is to promote the Trans-Canada Trail to align it with tourism and sustainable development in the Boundary.  We want to engage with each of the local communities along the trail to find out what local residents and land owners perspectives are.  We want to help determine how people are using the trail and what they would like to see in the future.”

Sander added, “We have already placed temporary signage to help trail users navigate and we are looking forward to improving some areas of the trail surface near highway crossings.  We seek volunteers from each of our communities along the trail to help with monitoring the trail, because it’s a big distance to cover.”


The Trails to the Boundary Society is collecting an informal survey of trail user’s experiences.  Please contact the Trail Coordinator at  The Trails to the Boundary Society also has a Facebook page at
