A 101-year-old Alberni Valley rail grade will officially reopen in its new role as a hiking trail at 10 a.m. on Sunday, May 24.

Phase 2 of the Alberni Inlet trail will officially open at the trail head, at the entrance to the China Creek Park (about 10 kilometres from Port Alberni on the road to Bamfield).

Years in the making, the final sections of this trail are now complete, resulting in nearly 20 km of continuous trail from Port Alberni to Franklin River. Stage 2 consists of a 7.5-km section from China Creek south to Franklin River.

The event put on by the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District will feature a ribbon cutting followed by refreshments and an opportunity to hike the trails.
