Many Paths, One Trail
About the Project
FUNDS RAISED: OVER $7.2 MILLION IN CASH AND IN-KIND DONATIONS SECURED TOWARDS $8.5 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.
Over 1,000 donors have contributed over $7.2 Million to date.
Total project cost is $8.5 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.
