KCTS holds 12th annual Rossland Trail Day

The 12th annual Rossland Trail Day will take place on Saturday, June 4.

The Kootenay Columbia Trail Society’s Trail Days are an opportunity to get out and do some trail building.

The 12th annual Rossland Trail Day will take place on Saturday, June 4.

The Kootenay Columbia Trail Society (KCTS) will host two Trail Days, one in Sunningdale on Saturday, May 28 and the other in Rossland.

“Every year the KCTS hosts a couple Trail Days for the community to come out and help make some trail and give back to their trail network,” says Ryan Kuhn, president of the KCTS.

For the Sunningdale event, volunteers will work on a new 3-km extension above the Upper Bluffs trail. The event will start at 9 a.m. and volunteers should meet at the Miral Heights trailhead.

The Rossland event will also start at 9 a.m. and volunteers will meet at the Centennial trailhead parking lot. Work will be done on a downhill connector from Poochie’s Cabin on upper Redtop to the top of Redhead.

“We’re working towards actually having a fun, flowy downhill trail,” says Kuhn.

Those who attend are encouraged to bring their own trail-making tools, though there will also be some provided. Volunteers should also bring food, water, sunscreen and bug spray.

“Be ready for a day out in the woods,” says Kuhn.

The Rossland event will also be followed by a potluck dinner at the Seven Summits Centre for Learning. The exact time of the potluck will be decided on the day.

“It’s a great opportunity to come out and give back to your trail, and it’s usually a good time,” says Kuhn. “We usually have a good turnout, so we get a good chunk of trail built. It really does help out.”
