Improvements in Tumbler Ridge Area will Benefit Locals and Tourism
Tumbler Ridge, B.C.- A new Trail, and improvements to the road to Kinuseo Falls, are in the works in the Tumbler Ridge area.
This fall, responsibility for the operation and maintenance of the Murray Forest Service Road ( also known as the Kinuseo Falls Road) near Tumbler Ridge will be transferred to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
The change means the road will be maintained to a standard that supports regular traffic for residents and for tourists visiting the region.
Maintenance work on the road will begin this fall, with additional work planned for next spring.
The ministry will be discussing options with the district for a new name for the road, one that will better reflect the tourism links in the area.
Meantime ,a $270,000 project in Tumbler Ridge is providing work experience and creating better recreation sites for residents and tourists.
The project is seeing a new BC Parks-approved shelter at Moose Lake and a new 15-kilometre trail into Quality Lake. The trail will be accessible for hikers, snowmobiles and ATVs.
Other components of the project include trail clearing and sign installation at Hermann Mountain and Five Cabin Creek trails, as well as promotion of the project at Grizfest and the Emperor’s Challenge community events.
The 19 week project is expect to be complete in October.
