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 Goverhment Site

The TCT25 Top 3 completing the posted trail cycle and hike tours while celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Trans Canada Trail receiving awards and sponsored prizes by MEC and TREK Bikes are: Jon Nightingale, Joette Heuft, and Daryl Sturdy.  All three chose to do the hike excursions with Jon hiking a minimum of 422 km while completing 38 of the trail tours.  The challenge was to complete 25 bike or walking tours.  We are pleased that many of you registered and got started on these trail tours.  All took on the challenge by inviting others along.  We are aware many others took in the outings without registering.  Hopefully you will continue enjoying more of them.  The same trail tours and additional ones can now be found as Loops and Linear Touiring on this website.  Link here for a full lsiting of sponsors and partners.
