Participant Information

Upgrades to the BCMC's Watersprite Lake Trail Continue!

After completing the Boardwalk and Bridges on the last trip, we are ready to construct stairs on the connector trail, clear some brush and perform drainage work.  Our new Trail Kiosk is in place, but needs volunteer power to assemble!

Volunteers will be performing the following tasks:

-Building up to 80 stairs on the connector trail at the 1.5 KM mark
-Transporting rebar and building supplies from the trucks to the work site (joy oh joy).
-Drainage work of soft sections with shovels
-Incidental clearing of vegetation from the trail.
-Assembling the club's Trail Kiosk

This trip will be the second in a series of major trail upgrades and construction trips dedicated to BCMC maintained Trails.  Come join us and help make this worthy project come to life and help fortify and upgrade the critical Watersprite Lake connector trail!

Section 57 authorization has been granted for this project.  Maximum participants Unlimited!

I have provided two GPX files for this trip (download them using the links on the bottom left of the page).  The first are the driving directions to the trailhead from Squamish, and the second is the GPX file for the trail itself.
