Courtesy signs installed along trail

Visitors to the KVR Trail in Faulder will find new heritage signs with the designation “KVR Trail Summerland to Princeton.”

Dear Editor:

Visitors to the KVR Trail in Faulder will find new heritage signs with the designation “KVR Trail Summerland to Princeton.”

The Summerland Trans Canada Trail logo has been added to those of the Province of British Columbia and of RDOS, who now maintains the KVR Trail in our area.

In addition large courtesy signs were installed just before the ATV Jamboree took place.

These signs were designed jointly by the province, the Summerland ATV Club and the Summerland TCT Society.

Their purpose is to set out rules for the shared use of the trail by pedestrians, cyclists, horseback riders and off-road vehicles.

The Summerland TCT Society supported the installation of these signs on a trial basis west of Faulder.

We will monitor how effective they are in minimizing conflict between motorized and non-motorized users.

A report will be provided in October which may result in changes.

Unfortunately, the RDOS also installed the courtesy signs along a trail section between Faulder and the Summerland KVR Station.

We cannot support this because here the TCT trail follows a narrow, windy trail close to acreages and residences.

For this reason it is designated for non-motorized use in the RDOS trails master plan.

Please help us assess the impact of the signs by sharing your trail experience.  You can either call the RDOS help line or email us at summerlandtrails@gmail.com.

Henry Sielmann, president
