Penticton Trails

Just an update, a gravel pit was approved by Lands Branch for the area up from Les's Lumber and road construction has started. This will will probably wipe out a few of the trails in that area. Not many people are aware of this.

Marathon Shuffle route and Sarah Point

Section Two of the Sunshine Coast Trail from Malaspina Road to the Shingle Mill on Powell Lake (the Marathon Shuffle route)is groomed from one end to the other. Also cleared are Sarah Point to Feather Cove, Bliss Portage to Cochrane Bay and on to Wednesday Lake, and out Gilpin Road to Sarah Point Road. Gwendoline Hills Trail from Wednesday Lake to Malaspina Road is good, but could use a little salal whacking near Hummingbird Bluff. Reportedly one tree down at about Km 17 near the Spire access trail from Lund, but easy to step over.
Remainder of SCT from Powell Lake south will be gone over in the coming weeks.
