The District of West Vancouver has applied for a $230,000 grant to restore a portion of the Baden Powell trail.
The Baden Powell Trail is over 40 kilometres long and connects multiple municipalities and regional parks together traversing the North Shore from Horseshoe Bay all the way to Deep Cove in North Vancouver.
The section of the Baden Powell Trail requiring immediate restoration is located within the District of West Vancouver.
It provides a key east/west connection from the Upper Lands to the Capilano River Regional Park through the Glenmore neighbourhood.
This project consists of repairing approximately 760 meters of the Baden Powell Trail from Bonnymuir Drive to Craigmohr Drive to restore a key trail connection.
The restoration will provide continued outdoor recreation opportunities for North Shore residents and visitors.
The trail also provides local active transportation within the neighbourhood community to one another, to bus transit, and between residences and schools, says West Vancouver.
The trail restoration was included as a capital project in the 2020 budget process because of the trail condition and because of community complaints about the state of this section of the Baden Powell Trail.
