The Pulpit Rock trail upgrade project is almost complete and has resulted in major improvements all along the trail.

Timber or stone steps are in place on most of the switchbacks, and many sections of worn trail have been repaired.  Within days now, a three-person crew will have worked on the trail for over 15 days and their work has overcome most of the difficult trail sections.

The $6,500 project was made possible by substantial discretionary grants from Regional District of Central Kootenay Area E (Ramona Faust) and Area F (Ron Mickel), as well as ongoing private donations put in the Pulpit  trailhead donation box.

Kootenay Co-op’s Community Donation Day is now quarterly, and features an increased donation value.  The Friends of Pulpit Rock Society has been selected by The Co-op to receive June’s Community Donation Day on Tuesday, June 18. With this community program, the Co-op donates a percentage of that day’s sales to the selected group.

By shopping on June 18 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.,   Co-op members and non-members can support local groups while getting their groceries.

On that day, Friends of Pulpit Rock Society will also be at the Co-op’s plaza with Pulpit Rock information, and looks forward to meeting all hikers and future hikers.
