About the Project

Total Raised:
$5,761,000

FUNDS RAISED: OVER $5,761,000 IN CASH AND IN-KIND DONATIONS SECURED TOWARDS $8 MILLION GOAL

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.

The Trail has raised over $5.76 Million to date from over 900 donors, surpassing the first phase target of $5 Million.

Total project cost is $8 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.
