Many Paths, One Trail

The Westside Legacy Trail is for everyone – we encourage you to enjoy every metre – Make fond memories, make it Your Trail! Bring your shoes, bikes or cross country skis and we will see you out there!

About the Project

Total Raised:


The Westside Legacy Trail is a multi-recreational, human-powered, paved trail that will the communities of Invermere and Fairmont Hot Springs. It will be a well-planned and meaningful addition to an already active community, and we encourage residents, businesses and local governments to contribute in their own unique way to help build this world-class trail amenity.

People will feel inspired to support the initiative for different reasons – be it for safety, health, economic impact, a stronger community, or the lifestyle it will provide, to name a few – but whatever your motivation, our diversity can converge on a single trail.

Over 1,000 donors have contributed over $7.7 Million to date.

Total project cost is $8.7 Million, and volunteers are hard at work to secure grants and donations to complete the final phase and reach the finish line. For more information or to make a donation, please click here.

Your Trail Ambassadors

Looking for a trail tour via run, walk, or bike this summer? Our Trail Ambassadors would love to show you the trail and all it has to offer!


Keep an eye out for Don Steedman in his new trail ambassador shirt! Don rides the Westside Legacy Trail nearly every day, and might even know the path better than those who work on it.
