New Trailhead Opening Saturday

Courtesy of the City of Williams Lake:

Construction of the new trail connecting into the Fox Mountain Trail system is now complete, with the official opening scheduled for Saturday, June 17th at 4 pm. This trail provides access to the mountain on an official pathway that will limit the impact of riders on private property throughout the area. With the access point at Tourism Discovery Centre, this trail provides access to Fox Mountain Trails and acts as a gathering point for out of town riders.

The City of Williams Lake would like to extend its sincere appreciation to the following groups for their dedication in making this a reality:

* Cariboo Regional District
* Signal Point Gaming
* Ministry of Recreation Sites and Trails BC
* Williams Lake Cycling Club
* Cariboo Mountain Bike Consortium
* Soda Creek First Nation
* Longhorn Fencing
* Tim Menning and Hytest Timber
* Red Shred’s Bike and Board Shed
* First Journey Trails

The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on Saturday, June 17th at 4:00 pm at the Visitor Reception Parking Area at the Trail Head.

"We are pleased to see the completion of this community partnership and extend our gratitude for the effort put in by so many volunteers and members of the local bike associations to move this initiative forward. This will become an anchor site for the Williams Lake bike trail system, and a great addition for our community," says Williams Lake Mayor Walt Cobb.

Acting Mayor Sue Zacharias will be on site for the ribbon cutting ceremony and Adventure Charters will be providing shuttle services to the top of the trail head for riders.
