A trail planned for next year to a new overlook above Nelson will be extended to connect to Pulpit Rock.
Last month the Star reported that the Pulpit Rock Society will build a trail from a point about one kilometre north of the Nelson Bridge on North Shore to an overlook they have called Lyon’s Bluff, to be completed by spring of 2020.
Last week the society’s Dave St. Denis announced that Lyons Bluff and Pulpit Rock will then be connected by a trail traversing Elephant Mountain, to be completed in two or three years.
He said hiking the full loop will take six to seven hours.
The group is seeking volunteers to help with administrative tasks like recruiting a trail crew, monitoring work as it progresses, and helping to fundraise for donations and grants. Contact St. Denis at 250-551-4659 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
