Coldstream backs Kal trail

Winding along the majestic Kalamalka Lake, a safe and scenic path between Vernon and Lake Country could be on route

Winding along the majestic Kalamalka Lake, a safe and scenic path between Vernon and Lake Country could be on route.

A proposed Kalamalka-Crystal Waters Trail proposal has been made to the Ministry of Transportation.

“It will take the old highway down to Lake Country,” said Coldstream Mayor Jim Garlick, whose council is supporting the plan.

The original application for the trail has gained a favourable response from the ministry, said Bob Fleming, electoral Area B director.

Now support from all area jurisdictions is being sought to aid the proposal.

“Because the trail starts in Coldstream at the college, enters municipal streets at the College Way cul-de-sac, carries on Lakeview Drive, leaves Lakeview Drive via a yet-to-be constructed portion which will connect it to the lookout, then exits Coldstream where the lookout connects with Kalamalka Lakeview Drive (the old highway), I need to formally request the support of Coldstream council for this trail,” said Fleming in correspondence with Garlick.

Coldstream signed on with its support Monday.
