The renos were a partnership Cariboo Regional District, Quesnel, and the Lhtako Dené First Nation

The Kosta’s Cove Accessible Trail is open to the public after closing for renovations July 2.

The trail added additional benches and viewing platforms among other improvements.

The improvements were made in partnership with Cariboo Regional District, the City of Quesnel, and the Lhtako Dené First Nation.

“We are pleased with the work being accomplished here and with the hard work put forth by our band members on-site,’ said the employment coordinator with Lhtako Dené Nation Employment Assistance Services, Alicia Evans. “We look forward to many more successful projects in the future.”

The Kosta’s Cove Accessible Trail is located on Bjornson Road, about 12 km north of Quesnel, at the north end of Ten Mile Lake.

“Projects like this deliver benefits in many ways,” said the Cariboo Area ‘B’ Regional District director, Barbara Bachmeier. “Not only do we get improved trails, but we also have the chance to work with our indigenous and municipal partners, developing positive relationships and cooperative processes.”

She added they were already hearing positive feedback about the changes.

The Co-Chair of the North Cariboo Joint Planning Committee, Councillor Laurey-Anne Roodenburg, said Kosta’s Cove is a great asset to the community.

“The improvements to the accessible trail, and installation of additional infrastructure will greatly enhance the area for local residents and travelers,” she said.

There are 25 low-mobility trails in the Cariboo region. A complete list can be found at www.cariboord.ca/services/recreation-2/accessible-trails.
