Document Publish Date: 5/10/2011
Summary: Although the entire Similkameen River Trail would ultimately encompass approximately 12.5 miles, the BLM's Proposed Action is limited to the 3.5 miles of trail proposed under Phase 1. Of the total 3.5 miles, approximately 1.7 miles are located on BLM managed lands within the Similkameen River gorge. The BLM proposes various trail and facility improvements including, but not limited to, trailbed hardening and trail maintenance, improved signage, emergency access points, wayside benches, and interpretive exhibits. The proposed action would relocate the PNT from the county road to the abandoned railroad grade along the south side of the Similkameen River as a safe-travel non-motorized trail, improving the overall experience for non-motorized recreationists.
