Giving trails

Bowen Island Trail Society contributes to maintaining and improving local trails.

The Bowen Island Trail Society is a volunteer organization dedicated to building and maintaining a well-integrated and interconnected community trail network for non-motorized users on Bowen. 

This past year, more than 1000 blazes (trail markers) were installed on Mt. Gardner (including Skid Trails, North Summit Trail, South Ridge Express, South Summit Grind and the Summit Connector-Loop).

More than 40 volunteers invested about 300 hours to accomplish all this in five separate blazing events from Nov. 2018 to June 2019. 

Big thanks to everyone who came out for our two biggest fundraisers over the past year––the Cover Your Trails benefit concert (featuring Dustin & Barney Bentall and friends), which raised $5,035 (including a generous donation of $500), and the Handloggers Half Marathon, which raised $3563 for the Trail Society.

A big shout out to everyone who has volunteered, laboured, donated and supported the Trail Society over the past year – you’re making Mt. Gardner Trails safer and more accessible for all non-motorized users. 

We’re looking forward to a productive and exciting 2020!
