People can now rest and comfortably and have lunch on Mount Thompson’s new picnic site.
The Creston Community Forest (CCF), a local volunteer-run non-profit organization, has installed a new picnic site 1,400 metres up the mountain at the former hang gliding launch site, on the West Ridge Trail.
The picnic site is reachable by a four and a half kilometre hike, from the 1.7 km mark on the Mount Thompson Forest Service Road. The site has two picnic tables, a fire ring and a cedar bench supplied by Recreation Sites and Trails BC.
The picnic site is accessible via a new footbridge across Sullivan Creek, built as part of the upgrades to the trail network this year.
Maps of the trail network are found on CCF’s website or in person at the Creston Visitor Centre.
