Similkameen Trails Society
The mission of Similkameen Trails is to promote and enhance the trails of the Similkameen; for the safety, health, welfare and enjoyment of neighbourhoods in and visitors to the Valley.
Our quest is to establish a chain of trails linking all communities through the valley from Manning park to the U.S. border and across to Osoyoos. Creating a circuit to the successful RDOS trails bringing new leisure opportunities to the Similkameen Valley.
We rededicate ancient and traditional trails that follow the river providing a historical reference that connects First Nations with new Canadians in mutual cooperation.
We achieve this by encouraging neighborhoods to set-up safe walking and biking circuits that connect their community; then we can link communities with trails.
The Keremeos Village Promenade has a walking and wheel chair circuit over the old rail bed and the Dike; with proposed links to the Red Bridge and to Kobau Park in Cawston. The Promenade volunteers are fund raising through Provincial grants, so as to complete the project. This project is a joint venture between the Village and the Society.
