Register for the July 1st Fun Run

Posted by on Jun 19, 2017 in Announcements | 0 comments

SVTS and SVYCC are partnering to offer a new event on Canada Day – the July 1st 5km Fun Run. The event is a fundraiser for the trail society but also hopefully just a great time for the community at large. This is not a race, there will be no timing, just a chance to get out as a group and enjoy some of the amazing things Salmo has to offer. We will start at the SVYCC at 8am, run over to, and around, the new lookout trail and on the return head across the new 6th Street bridge.

As an SVTS event you need to be a member to participate for insurance purposes and then registration is $10. All participants will receive a goodie bag and post run snacks plus we have great prizes from Gericks Trail, Dragonfly Cafe, Gypsywagon Catering and more. There will be a mini aid station at the trailhead with water, first aid and a cheering squad! As always, membership is by donation and can be done at the Hemlock Hub, via email or even snail mail. Event registration in advance can also be done at Hemlock Hub or via email or on the morning of the event from 7:20am – 7:50am. All ages welcome! Run or walk or bike to the trail head, hike the trail, and bike back. Whatever works for you!

Trail Crew Update

Posted by on Jun 12, 2017 in Announcements | 0 comments

The trail crew is finishing up on the first phase of the lookout hiking trail – a 1.5km loop on the bluffs above Delaurentis and Airport Road. Don’t let the short distance fool you, the trail has you working hard with the reward of great views. We will be doing a ‘grand opening’ hike with students from Salmo Secondary on June 21st. All are welcome with more details to come. A 0.5km out and back section to a further lookout will be added in the fall but at this stage the crew will be heading over to the ski hill to work on the next section of Inducer. Stay up to date with the crews progress on our Facebook page.
