Ribbon cutting at Xat'sull marks Grand Opening of new trail linking ancient heritage routes
(XAT'SULL ) Cutting a new ribbon at the old Emporium Restaurant is the perfect way to open a new trail at Soda Creek that links ancient heritage routes dating back to the Gold Rush and beyond.
The public is invited to the trail's Grand Opening on August 17, 3:00 p.m. at the restaurant in Soda Creek. The official name for the new trail will also be unveiled. Afterwards, you can bike or walk the multi-purpose trail (shuttles back to the restaurant will be available).
This project in the traditional territory of the Secwepemc People is a partnership between the Xat'sull First Nation, New Pathways to Gold Society (NPTGS) and the Northern Development Initiative Trust (NDIT). NPTGS is contributing $30,000 towards the project while NDIT is providing matching funds.
The multi-purpose trail links historic Gold Rush trails around Deep Creek and Soda Creek (Xat'sull). For more information, please contact Miriam Schilling, Community Economic Development Coordinator, at 250-989-2311.
