Are you interested in the regional rail trail network and creating an internationally export-ready tourism product?

Workshops and an online survey will be offered for the Thompson Okanagan Regional Rail Trails Tourism Strategy.

Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association (TOTA) in association with Destination BC, Recreation Sites and Trails BC, Trails BC, Trans Canada Trail Society, B.C. Cycling Coalition and Cyclo Touring B.C. Program, is pleased to announce workshop dates for the Thompson Okanagan Regional Rail Trails Tourism Strategy.

This strategy, scheduled to be complete by October 2015, will assist the regional rail trail network in creating an internationally export-ready tourism product and will further advance the goals presented in the 10-year Regional Tourism Strategy Embracing Our Potential (totabc.org/corporateSite/regional-strategy).

The centerpiece of this trails strategy will be the Kettle Valley / Columbia and Western Railway rail trails routes that form the basis of the Trans Canada Trail (TCT) through the Thompson Okanagan region.

This process is being led by TOTA with support Destination British Columbia (DBC).
