Inlet trail officially opens in Alberni

A new trail near Alberni will allow residents and visitors to walk through Island Timberlands’ working forest along the Alberni Inlet.

Island Timberlands, the Alberni Valley Enhancement Association and Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District will officially unveil the Alberni Inlet Trail this Sunday, Sept. 18 at 2 p.m.

Festivities will take place at the trailhead parking lot located at the junction of Anderson Avenue and Ship Creek Road.

This trail, the first phase of which is 12 kilometres long, allows residents and visitors of the Alberni Valley to walk through Island Timberlands’ working forest along the Alberni Inlet—both an important shipping route as well as popular water sports destination with gorgeous views.

This trail’s first stage, along with its envisioned second and third stages, is rooted in the region’s history, where the Canadian National Pacific Railway was once under construction for the area’s burgeoning transportation network.

Discussions over the second stage of development will take place sometime in 2012, Island Timberlands’ spokesperson Morgan Kennah said.

The public is invited to help Island Timberlands, the AVEA and ACRD officially open this trail.
