If you have not heard the unfortunate news, there have been trespass and Forest and Range Practices Act contravention notices posted on various trail works within the Gillard trail network. These notices were posted by the compliance and enforcement ofﬁce of the ministry of forests, land and natural resource operations. It is their job to police the wilderness and ensure that activities undertaken on crown land don’t contravene the various pieces of legislature that govern the use of our natural resources whether the use be industrial or recreational in purpose.
It has always been a goal of MTBco
to work toward the legalization of the various illegal trail networks that exist within the Central Okanagan. We now have a well used and popular trail network that is in jeopardy of being lost, so the time for legalization is now.
MTBco has begun the long process of legalizing Gillard under Section 57 of the Forest and Ranges Practices Act. Once we have made headway on Gillard we will be moving forward with the legalization process on other trail networks within the region. As part of our efforts we are collecting signatures and contact information from riders who support this process. By signing this petition you are lending your name to us as a supporter of the legalization of the Gillard riding area and the various other trail networks within the Central Okanagan.If you aren't familiar with Okanagan trails here's a taste
