The Friends of Pulpit Rock Society (FPRS) has organized its second year of trail upgrades. A trail crew will be working on improvements until June 10.
Work will focus on the intermediate trail that runs from the Pulpit to the Flagpole.
Highlights of the planned work will include more stone and timber steps on steeper trail sections, water bars to minimize erosion, rock sawing and a chain hand rail to improve footing and safety at the rock outcrop just below the Pulpit.
FPRS President and Treasurer Nancy Selwood said, “Work is being done by a four-person trail crew from the Friends of Castlegar Parks and Trails led by Sara Meunier. She has a diploma in Wildland Recreation from Selkirk College.”
Other improvements will be a new flag at the flagpole and a new website, pulpitrocknelson.com.
The $8,000 trail upgrades are funded by Ron Mickel, the RDCK Director for Area F, the Columbia Basin Trust Fund and your donations from the trail-head donation box.
