Trails Society of BC

Welcome to the Trails Society of BC's official website. We are a registered non-profit with charity status.  We have a mandate to assemble and preserve the British Columbian section of the Trans Canada Trail, as well as advocate for the expansion, sustainability and preservation of greenway trails in B.C.

We dedicate ourselves to keep our information updated.  We invite you to be part of our grand vision of a Trans Canada Trail/The Great Trail and our quest for quality greenway experiences for non-motorized trail users. You can participate by becoming a Trails BC member, a volunteer, or a donor.  

While we make every effort to keep you up to date with trail alerts regarding trails we describe on the Trails BC website, we strongly advise you to also check Trail Alerts and Closures on the Sites and Trail Recreation Government Site
