Kosta’s Cove Accessible Trail Closed for Maintenance
Preliminary work to maintain and upgrade the facilities at the Kosta’s Cove Accessible Trail is now underway. The trail will be closed to the public for approximately two weeks beginning July 2, as crews perform needed work to the trail and facilities. Improvements will include updates to the low mobility trail, accessible benches, and picnic area. Other accessible trails in the Cariboo Regional District remain open. An updated public notice will be issued when the work is complete.
No matter where you are in the Cariboo Regional District, amazing recreation opportunities are right nearby. The Regional District created its Low Mobility Trails Network, featuring 25 wheelchair accessible wilderness trails (featured below) throughout the region, so people of all mobility levels could access the area’s various stunning landscapes, numerous types of wildlife and rich history.
The Cariboo Regional District has embraced the vision of creating a wheelchair accessible trails network in the Cariboo Chilcotin to increase outdoor wilderness recreation opportunities for people of all mobility levels. In 2008, the Cariboo Regional District commissioned a region-wide study, which reviewed almost fifty sites, to identify locations for potential wheelchair accessible trails.
Through funding from the Government of British Columbia and the Northern Development Initiative Trust, 22 wheelchair accessible trails have been completed.
The Cariboo Regional District hopes to continue this exciting initiative, working with partners including local community groups, to research and choose additional sites for the development of wheelchair accessible trails.
