Questions / Concerns:
RDN Manager of Parks Services
Way Markers indicating how many kilometres from the Parksville or Coombs trailhead kiosk you have travelled and how many kilometres lie ahead of you to the other end of the (just about) 7 km long Rail Trail are now in place.
The official opening of the Coombs to Parksville Rail Trail is set for Saturday October 14th. The event will also involve a celebration of the RDNâ€™s 50th anniversary. Mark it on your calendar! More details will follow in early October.
The Coombs to Parksville Rail Trail will remain open during the works, though users may encounter delays at Church Rd and at Station Rd and Hwy 4A. Please follow all directions issued at site by the contractor. Safety is everyone's concern.
Also coming soon: multi-use etiquette and way-marking signage.
Also coming in June: pedestrian controlled beacons at the trail crossing of Church Road and of Hwy 4A at Station Road in Coombs, along with some vehicular parking controls around these crossings.
Over the course of April and May 2017, final trail works including the installation of pedestrian controlled beacons at Church Rd and Station Rd will be carried out. Expect temporary and partial trail closures as works are completed. Please obey all posted signs. Safety is job number one.
