TRAIL WORK APPLICATION

Trail Work Application

WHAT?
If you are looking to build a new trail, or modify an existing trail in the Fernie area, there is an application process now in place. Available to anyone, the below form details how to apply. As no “significant trail work” can take place until permission has been given in writing by the FTA and the relevant landowner.

WHY?
Unauthorized trail work jeopardizes the FTA’s relationship with the landowners. Such relationships are crucial to maintaining our access. Failure to follow this process jeopardizes trail access for everyone. Any unauthorized trail work will be decommissioned, and reported to landowners – who may issue fines or take legal action against the offenders.

THE APPROVAL PROCESS:

  1. MAKE A PLAN – Please download and read in full the below Trail Application Process document.
  2. SUBMIT YOUR PLAN – Using the below form.
  3. TM&C COMMITTEE REVIEW
  4. FTA MANAGER + EXECUTIVE REVIEW
  5. LAND OWNER APPROVAL or DENIAL
  6. START WORK

THANKS!
We thank you for taking the time to plan and apply below. This process is key, to ensure our local trail network can be maintained, improved and grow from strength to strength.
