Financial support has placed Greater Vernon’s trail network on the right track.

The Ribbons of Green Trails Society has received $4,000 from the Kalamalka Rotary Club for the development of signage on the Middleton Mountain trail system.

“The Regional District of North Okanagan has recently completed the trail loop, with the construction of the trails on the top of Middleton Mountain,” said Tannis Nelson, community development co-ordinator.

The Ribbons of Green Trails Society is dedicated to the promotion and construction of walking, hiking and cycling trails in Greater Vernon.

It will be hosting a public hike of the newly completed Middleton Mountain circle trail Sunday.

The hike will begin at the Kal Beach parking lot on Husband Road at 9 a.m. and continue to the summit of Middleton Mountain, returning back to the parking lot.

“Portions of the trail are challenging requiring good hiking shoes, water and sun protection,” said Nelson.

“Hikers will enjoy exquisite views of Kalamalka Lake, the Coldstream Valley, Swan Lake and the City of Vernon during the approximately three-hour hike.”

Dogs are welcome during the hike but they must be on a leash.
