Adopt a Trail
The Loon Lake Community Trail, located at 1701/1705 Loon Lake Road, requires continuous raking and debris removal this spring/summer and fall, and volunteers – individuals, families or groups – are now being sought to adopt small portions of the trail and maintain them.
There are various themed sections including Find the Birds, Fairyland, Gold Rush Days, Gnomes and Dinosaur Crater, and the trail committee always accepts painted rocks or other outdoor items such as birdhouses, wind chimes and garden ornaments. There will also be work days to keep the trail looking great in the future.
Anyone interested in adopting part of the Loon Lake Community Trail for maintenance purposes can contact Karen Lea (250-459-2281) or Susanne Kavalec (250-459-5698) for more information.
