  • Looking forward to having that book. Still planning to do the whole TCT in 2011 ! Maybe even earlier, preferably a lot of walking !

  • I have used the trail here frequently, but it is being ruined by all terrain vehicle use. From the Myra canyon trestles near Kelowin BC to the Coalmont canyon with its tunnels , river rapids and beaches, this was a great trail. We used to have bicycle tour groups coming from Europe but they can’t stand it any more. The surface has been churned up into dust by ATV’s and motorbikes.The ATVers even write to our local newspapers saying that the “No motorised vehicle ” signs make them feel unwelcome! But they still keep coming , much to the chagrin of local ranchers whose fields and hillsides are also getting destroyed by these machines. How do we keep the machines off and get our trail back? We don’t mind snowmobiles in winter because there are no other users then. We have much nicer trails for cross country ski-ing.
    In summer there are hikers,horse riders,mountain bikers,and just ordinary dog walkers. What we all have in common is our dislike of noisy, dusty, smelly machinery ruining it for the rest of us. Repeated appeals to our BC government has produced no action or response.
